Geri Halliwell wants a man to pee in her garden.

The Spice Girls singer was horrified to discover a fox on her property and revealed an unusual tactic she has heard of to keep the animal at bay and away from her dog William.

She tweeted: ''I just saw a fox in my garden , it sniffed William's tennis ball.

''Apparently a man's wee gets rid of foxes. Get the man to wee in the garden.

''I realise it could sound rude asking a man to pee in your garden (sic).''

The job to rid Geri's garden of foxes may fall to her latest boyfriend, Russian millionaire Anton Kaszubowski.

The 40-year-old singer - who has five-year-old daughter Bluebell Madonna from a previous relationship - met her latest boyfriend last month and she is said to be smitten with the ''gentleman''.

A source explained: ''They hit it off instantly and are seeing a lot of each other.

''Anton's just her type. He has friends in high places and loves shooting in the country.

''Geri's typically rushing into it with guns blazing saying, 'He's the gentleman that I've been waiting for.' ''

Since Geri, 40, met 39-year-old Anton - whose friends include the singer's former boyfriend Henry Beckwith - they have enjoyed a romantic trip to Rome, Italy, dinners in London and a day out shooting.
