A Perfect Ten

‘IF words were pies, the amount that has been written about Geri Halliwell’s weight would be enough to keep Vanessa Feltz quiet for at least a week.

Geri, St Tropez, March 1953

Once known as a singer (albeit one who couldn’t sing), the artist formerly known as Ginger Spice is now the very first celebrity dieter.

And the Mail devotes its Page 3 this morning to a celebration of Geri’s fuller figure.

The dieter says that men are suddenly more interested in her now that she has put on some beef.

‘When I was skinny, it was like a desert,’ she says. ‘And the minute I got a few pounds on me, it changed.

‘I’m quite shocked, actually, with the kind of attention I receive.’

Not as shocked as we are that there’s so much interest in one so talentless.

‘When I hit 30 [sometime in the early 1990s], I stopped trying to control things,’ she continues.

‘I’m more accepting. I stopped trying to be perfect – that’s the big difference.’

What a shame, Geri – you were so close…’
