Geri Halliwell Mocked For "Posh Accent" As She Wins 'Sport Relief Bake Off'


Geri Horner

Geri Halliwell emerged victorious in the ‘Sport Relief Bake Off’ final last night – but many viewers were more interested in the former Spice Girl’s accent, mocking her for her “cut-glass” pronunciation.

The 43 year old pop star, whose given surname is now Horner after marrying Formula One boss Christian Horner, impressed Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry with her Mediterranean tart and chocolate tray bake and was duly named the winner of the charity spin-off baking contest, but Twitter users found her use of a “fake posh voice” to be rather distracting.

Horner grew up on a council estate in North Watford, and during her Spice Girls years she was famous for her brash, ‘ladette’ image. However, throughout Wednesday night’s final, many felt she was putting on airs and graces.

Geri Halliwell Reveals Spice Girls Reunion "Talks" Are In Progress


Geri Horner Spice Girls Emma Bunton Mel B Melanie C Victoria Beckham

The much-rumoured Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion might be back on the cards as Geri Halliwell confirmed that the girl group has been in “talks” about getting back together for a brief celebratory tour.

Halliwell, 43, appeared on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ on Tuesday (September 8th) when she was asked whether the group had any plans to mark two decades since their first single and album next year. She responded cautiously, admitting that her band-mates Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C had been in preliminary discussions about reuniting (Victoria Beckham is already believed to have turned down the possibility).

However, she didn’t want to get fans’ hopes up unnecessarily as nothing had been set in stone yet. “I think it's really faltering that people are still supportive of the Spice Girls individually and collectively, that's beautiful, it's really nice. It almost feels you know that it [the Spice Girls] belongs to everyone, like a generation.”
