Geri Halliwell

Geraldine 'Geri' Estelle Halliwell is an English pop star,
author, philanthropist and entrepreneur. Born to an English, Irish
and Swedish father and Spanish mother, she grew up on a Watford
council estate. After attending Watford Girls Grammar School and
before starting with the Spice Girls, Geri had a colourful life,
including phases of homelessness, living in Spain and Turkey, and
working as a glamour model, a nightclub dancer and a TV game show
assistant. In 1994, Geri found fame alongside Emma Bunton, Melanie
Chisholm, Melanie Brown and (then) Victoria Adams as the Spice
Girls. Following a magazine article, the girls quickly took over
nicknames, with Geri's becoming 'Ginger Spice', due to her firey
red (dyed) hair. The Spice Girls went on to be the best selling
girl group of all time, with 9 UK No 1 singles - their debut single
'Wannabe' becoming No 1 in 41 countries - and over 65m records sold
worldwide. In 1998, Geri left the Spice Girls to pursue a
successful solo career - her debut solo album alone contained four
number one singles. She also wrote two autobiographies and worked
alongside Louis Walsh and Pete Waterman on Popstars: The Rivals to
form Girls Aloud. In 2006, Geri gave birth to her daughter Bluebell
Madonna, after a short relationship with screenwriter/director
Sacha Gervasi. In 2007 the Spice Girls reformed, releasing a
Greatest Hits album and playing 47 dates worldwide, with 17 in
London's O2 arena. She is also a goodwill ambassador for the
UN, a patron of Breast Cancer Care and the writer of children's
book series Ugenia Lavender, achieving the title of 2008's most
successful female celebrity children's author. In April 2013, it
was revealed that Geri would join the judging panel for the fourth
series of Australia's Got Talent. She also announced plans to
continue with her music career and will be releasing her first solo
single for nearly eight years in September.
