State Of The Union

by | 4th, September 2002

‘AND you can bet it’s mad, mad, mad behind the scenes at Popstars: The Rivals, which is where Hello! is rummaging around this week. Maddest of all is that ”pop icon” Geri Halliwell, one of the judges of the show, is turning into Dougal The Dog from The Magic Roundabout.

Will the flag ever again run up the flagpole that is Geri?

But even madder than that – and we’re so mad here at Anorak that we can be madder than mad – are the people auditioning. Like Essex-based Sarah Besley, who burst into the auditions wearing a Union Jack dress a la Ginger Spice. ”Geri is my idol,” she explained. ”It was my mum’s idea and I had to do something to get Geri’s attention.”

Flashing her breasts always worked for your idol, but we find the best way to get Geri’s attention these days is simply to whistle.’
