    Any 90s nostalgia show gets a big thumbs up from me, especially with Geri at the helm. Her first autobiography legit remains one of my favourite reads.

    FORMER? Gemb must be offended, those live shows with a free raffle at Pontins are nearly confirmed by now.

    Nonetheless I am a huge fan of all self-indulgent celebrity mission documentaries and I can only hope that it meets the level of Dawn Goes Lesbian and the one where Kirsten O'Brien got her tits out.

    Main take aways from this

    - BLESS Geru for still going about how she is still in her "mid 40's". Don't think so LOVE.

    - I bet she must be DELIGHTED how she will get her own spotlight when talking about the Spice Girls. I bet she'll shoehorn UNKNOWN FACTS about the band like how Victoria would spend the time shopping for shoes while Geru sat down on her bed with a scribble pad and a XYLOPHONE (or a dictaphone or whatever) COMPOSING epic timeless classics such as Stop and Too much :what::rolleyes:

    I like to think BB Madge will be pulling an Adams Family Wednesday on little George Michael Minogue Hex Hector Remix Horner the second Geru gets her priorities back on track.

    It's basically her stage name AND her only career option

    I thought for a sec you were suggesting she pursues a career BAREBACKING rather than Big Brother.

    Geri's 1990s: MY DRIVE TO FREEDOM.

    Pop music's Nelson Mandela, former Spice Girl Geri Horner looks back on the 1990s and reflects on her own incredible journey from working class Watford girl to international superstar, philanthropist and activist. Contains strong language.

    There's a really SCATHING preview in the GRAUNIAD saying that she's useless on it because she's so SELF-ABSORBED that she neither NOTICED nor CARED about anything else that was going on in the 90s :D

    Did NOBODY watch Geru's prime time BBC2 docu?

    So many iconic moments. That accent!

    Can't believe I missed this. I'll try and get someone to download it on Demand, or just wait for Halli's highlights.

    While the documentary wasn't as Geri-focussed as I would have liked, I thought she came across really well - not even a HINT of mania in the eyes.

    Either she's finally got her meds right or Christian and married life have finally saved her

    Agree Jill, I felt she came across great! Might all be in the edit, but even so it was a good watch and trip down memory lane. It made me want to dig out her autobiography again.

    I'm 10 minutes in and so far it's been about the 1980s.

    It was pretty interesting but , overall, Geru disappointed me since I expected a bit more crazyness from her part.
    I love how her voice has mellowed over the years, she used to sound UNBEARABLE whilst speaking 20 years ago.

    Just seen Geru on This Morning from the 9th. She actually sounds really touching when talking about George, and yes she asks her favourite question as she composes herself back.

    Although - I'm in LOVE with the idea Geru has her daughter taking her publicity photos.

    She's left Monty at home doing a stack of signed photographs for her.

    "Like you love it so much" - eugh.

    Either she's devil or that's actually Kelly Osbourne in disguise.

    Presumably now that Monty's started showing some vocal talent the firstborn has been cast aside.
