After suffering from bulimia in her ‘20s, Geri has now learned how to ‘celebrate cake’.
Former Spice Girl Geri Horner has described her time on the ‘Great Sport Relief Bake Off’ as ‘liberating’. The 43-year-old appeared on this year’s series of the charity baking contest and revealed that her time on the show helped her relationship with food, after battling bulimia in her 20s.
Geri Horner felt 'liberated' after 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off'
Speaking to You Magazine, Horner said she had agreed to do the show because of her nine-year-old daughter Bluebell, who’s a big fan. But the experience turned into something much bigger for Horner.
The world premier of The Spice Girls musical VIVA Forever took place in London last night, but the group were upstaged as the Beckham family attended in full - minus youngest Harper - to take the glare of the snappers' bulbs away from the remaining members of the Fab Five. Indeed, you'd be hard pressed to find a picture of Victoria Beckham with her old group mates Melanie Chisolm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown, the pop star-cum-fashion entrepreneur sticking largely with her husband and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
Viva Forever! is the new Mamma Mia!-esque West End production about a girl band on the way to becoming superstars on a reality show; a story that has a lot of the same feelings as the Spice Girls own story of stardom. Geri Halliwell, formerly known as Ginger Spice, said that she felt 'tearful' because of the feelings it brought up. Starring in the show is Hannah John-Kamen as 'Wannabe' star Viva and Sally Ann Triplett in the role of her mother.
The show has received lukewarm reviews so far particularly from The Guardian and The Independent with Guardian reviewer Alexis Petridis saying: "The lyrics are required to drive the action on and the lyrics of Spice Girls songs are appalling." However, all those involved were pleased with the result; Saunders insists that she has enjoyed the whole experience. "It's a relief but I hope it won't stop now, because I've enjoyed it so much," she said. "I'll probably still call in every couple of weeks and hope they still know who I am." Melanie Chisholm, formerly Sporty Spice, thought that the Spice legacy was all down to their honesty in their music. "We really spoke from our hearts," she said. "We loved working together and writing music together, and we feel really lucky that people identified with us."
The Spice Girls reunited briefly last night, but not for one last show together. Victoria, Emma, Geri, Mel B and Mel C attended the premiere of the Viva Forever musical at the Piccadilly theatre in London.
Beneath the poppy surface, the musical looks like a serious production, featuring some big names in the business. Viva Forever was produced and written by Judy Craymer, who also worked on the infamous Mama Mia, with the help of comedian Jennifer Saunders. It stars West End veteran Sally Ann Tripplett, as well as newcomer Hannah John Carmen. After the show, the guests of honor gushed about the experience of hearing the songs they wrote sung by an all-star West End cast.
"We're so proud of this. Jennifer Saunders has written an incredible story and we have a wonderful cast. It's a great, great show," Mel C commented on the performance. The ladies, most of whom attended with their children, said that they hoped the musical would be a good way to introduce The Spice Girls’ music to a younger audience, but that they were mostly happy to have the opportunity for the long awaited reunion. "It's been an amazing year for us. It's so nice to be with the girls," Emma Burton said after the premiere.
