Geri Halliwell's quest for comeback success has been dealt a devastating blow - Britain's top radio stations have blacklisted her new single.

The former SPICE GIRL is desperate to resurrect her career after several years out of the limelight, but her tune DESIRE has failed to capture the interests of BBC RADIO 1 and CAPITAL FM bosses - meaning it will go largely unheard in the build-up to its release.

A Radio 1 spokesman says, "We've only got a finite amount of room on our playlists and we chose songs we think our audience are interested in. Geri's isn't one we'll be adding."
