Geri is of course part of the global pop phenomenon that brought a little big of Zig-a-Zig-Ah into everyone's lives in the late 1990s, the Spice Girls. As Ginger Spice, Geri and her bandmates became one of the most successful British pop groups of all time, with their first single 'Wannabe' hitting the No.1 spot in no less than 31 countries and became the biggest-selling debut single of all time.
Geri left the Spice Girls in 1998, and the following year launched her own solo career. Number 1 solo hits included "Mi Chico Latino", "Bag it Up" and her cover of "It's Raining Men".
The Spice Girls most recently reformed when Geri and her four bandmates performed at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
