British pop star Geri Halliwell was left red-faced during a visit to a zoo in Australia over the weekend (25-26May13) when a koala urinated in her purse.

The Spice Girls singer has moved Down Under with her daughter Bluebell to take a judging job on reality Tv series Australia's Got Talent, and she has been sightseeing in Sydney during her time off.

Halliwell visited the city's famous Taronga Zoo on Sunday (26May13), but got more than she bargained for in the koala enclosure when one of the creatures peed on her handbag.

The star posted a picture of the guilty party on her page with the caption, "He peed on my bag", adding, "I stepped in koala poo & he peed on my handbag - no probs."
