We're all sitting here, living our best lives, trying to speed up time so that Drag Race UK will FINALLY AIR on our screens sometime soon.

The creators of RuPaul's Drag Race, World of Wonder, confirmed the big news that a British version of the show was coming to BBC3 on Twitter months ago.

Mama Ru herself issued a statement, writing: “I am beyond excited to celebrate the massive charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent of the Queen’s queens.

Before anyone asks, yes, we would be thrilled to have Meghan Markle join us, as we are already preparing a 'Royal-Mother-To-Be' runway challenge.”

With Alan Carr and Graham Norton already announced as celebrity judges for the show, it has just been confirmed that Ginger Spice Geri Horner and Little Mix's Jade Thirlwall will also join the panel.

Opening up about her appreciation for drag, Horner said;

“I just love how drag encourages people to be exactly who they are. This show has brought so much joy and pride to people all over the world, I can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing queens representing the UK in this first ever series."

Jade also gave a joyful statement as another official girlband princess,  saying:

“I love absolutely everything about drag. I love that it’s art. I love how fabulous it is, how fun it is, I love that you can transform your body into a fantastic beautiful woman… the whole thing! I just wish in my next life I can be a drag queen.”

Game of Thrones' most badass assassin, Maisie Williams, has also signed up to be a guest judge.

The show dooesn't have an air date or a trailer as of yet, but we'll be keeping a look out.

Controller of BBC Three, Damian Kavanagh, described the achievement of the BBC acquiring the show: “Needless to say, we’re delighted that BBC Three will be the home of a new UK version of Drag Race.

“It is one of the biggest entertainment titles in the world and anticipation levels for a UK version have been at feverish levels. With heart, humour and the un-imitable RuPaul, Drag Race is going to take BBC Three to a whole new level.”

The show is set to be filmed in London, and casting directors will be searching far and wide for the best drag artists in the UK and Ireland with massive budgets for costumes and production.

RuPaul has an extensive following over in this part of the world, so we'll see if the new queens will give the original USA stars a run for their money.

We can't wait to see what UK and Irish drag artists bring to the party, but with a judging panel as incredible as this, what's not to love?

The Spice Girls reunion tour has gotten off to a rocky start, to say the least.

The iconic 1990s girl-group performed at Croke Park last Friday, and Cardiff's Principality Stadium last night, and fans are slamming the sound problems and even demanding refunds.

The band's opening gig in Dublin was plagued with sound issues, with some fans in the crowd even walking out after they were unable to hear any of the songs or the commentary in between.

After Friday's gig, Spice Girl Mel B said she hoped the sound "will be much better" at their Cardiff concert, but seemingly the audio problems remained.

Many fans took to social media to vent their disappointment, describing the sound delays and feedback as atrocious.

"How disappointing to spend money on a ticket to see The Spice Girls and the support act stole the show!," wrote one Twitter user, Kate Carr.

Jess Glynne was brought in as the support act, and apparently the sound during her set had no issue.

"The Spice Girls was so much fun however the sound was atrocious and you could not hear what they actually said! So disappointing when you pay soo much for a once in a life time opportunity," wrote another Twitter user.

Not being able to hear their favourite 90's pop icons after paying huge prices for tickets left many people upset, understandably.

The four band-members (Geri Halliwell, Mel C, Mel B and Emma Bunton) powered on with their set list of greatest hits despite the issues.

With fans paying almost €100 for tickets, it's easy to see why they became frustrated, to say the least.

Others were unhappy when Cardiff's stadium roof was bizarrely left open, allowing the rain to come in.

The girl group will continue to perform 12 more concerts in the UK, but we hope they sort these technical difficulties out. At least some fans had a brilliant time, with some describing the experience as 'phenomenal'.

The Spice Girls are heading to Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol and will finish their tour at London's Wembley Stadium.

After months of drama, speculation and controversial revelations, former Spice Girls Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel B decided to ditch the name which made them famous and reunite as GEM.

Since news of the partial Spice Girls reunion broke, fans have been waiting patiently for a glimpse of the band’s new music and now, at long last, their first track seems to have arrived.

Earlier this week, a single called Song For Her was leaked online with the claim that it is GEM’s debut track as a trio.

While the band has yet to confirm or deny that the music is in fact theirs, many believe Song For Her is sufficiently nostalgia inducing to pass for the work of one of the 90s most beloved bands.


It would seem as though Channel 4 have their sights set on our favourite Spice Girl.

Geri Horner, commonly known as Ginger Spice, is being lined up to host Great British Bake Off.

A source from Channel 4 told The Sun that "Geri is a bit of a curve-ball idea, but an intriguing one all the same".

The source also said that Geri has always been a huge fan of the show, but may be a difficult choice for producers, as she has virtually no presenting experience.

"But it's the only show that might tempt her to host" they said.

Six months ago Geri appeared on a special episode of Great British Bake Off in aid of Sports Relief.

We certainly think Geri could spice-up the show!



After weeks of are-they-aren't-they speculation regarding a 2016 reunion for the Spice Girls, it seems the band are indeed in talks to reform… but not as a complete set.

Victoria Beckham has reportedly already bowed out of any reunion plans, telling former bandmate Geri Halliwell that she won't be taking part. The pair apparently met for a "secret" catch-up lunch last week, and VB broke the news to her old friend on the day.

"Victoria met Geri recently to have an afternoon together reminiscing about old times," a source told The Sun.

"Geri filled Victoria in on the plans for the reunion next year and while Victoria made it clear she couldn't make it, she said she was more than happy for the other girls to go ahead. It's wrong to suggest she would try to stop them doing it if the other girls wanted to."

News of a possible reunion tour for the girl group emerged last week, after Geri confirmed on ITV's This Morning that the gang were in "talks" about honouring the 20th anniversary of Wannabe with a gig.

Having just unveiled yet another stunning collection from her clothing line at New York Fashion Week, Victoria's focus is definitely elsewhere, but she says she'll offer Ginger Spice and co. her full support.

"Victoria told Geri she would be at one of the shows, or maybe more, cheering from the front row," the insider said.

The Spice Girls last reunited in 2012 at the opening of the London Olympics, a reunion which even included Posh Spice.

Surely someone can convince VB to join them for one last hurrah?


Victoria Beckham officially won throwback Thursday when she posted an old Spice Girls photo album on her Instagram account last night. And the world obviously went totally crazy afterwards.

Then began the rumours: the girls were reuniting to mark the 20th anniversary of their global hit debut single, Wannabe

Unsurprisingly given her mega-profile and her successful career as a fashion designer, Victoria Beckham was said not be joining the girl gang on stage for their tour – but the others were seemingly very much on board.

Still, late this afternoon Emma Bunton delivered the devastating news that "nothing's happening at the moment". Nooooo!

The Sun had reported today that the reunion tour was definitely in the offing.

"If anything happens and it's concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know," Baby Spice said on Heart FM this morning.

Mel C later tweeted: "Woke up this morning wondering whether I need to start practising my backflips???!!!" A jibe to which Ms Bunton then replied: "Do I need to put my pigtails in?!?!?"

Victoria Beckham has previously said the London Olympics back in 2012 was definitely her final appearance with the others in any sort of musical capacity.

Although in the past year, the band haven't been shy about meeting up in public and they're quite open about how they are all still really close friends and all stay in touch regularly. 

And we're quietly hopeful that the worldwide reaction today may have given the girls some serious food for thought. Indeed, The Sun reporter who broke the story, Dan Wooton, was eager to stress that no actual denial had been issued. 

He's sticking to his guns, in fact, suggesting via Twitter that an official announcement will still come later this year – a message which Emma then shared with her 1.2million followers. 

Sounds promising, we say!!




Geri Halliwell had a fairytale wedding to Christian Horner in Bedfordshire, England last month, but not everything about the big day was perfect.

Three notable absentees from the ceremony were Geri's former Spice Girls bandmates Mel B, Mel C and Victoria Beckham. In the end, Emma Bunton was the only one in attendance, and although did others did take to social media to lament the fact they couldn't be there, many wondered why more of an effort wasn't made.

Now though, Mel B has spoken out about why she skipped Geri's big day along with Posh and Sporty, and she says it really was just an unfortunate scheduling issue.

The former X Factor judge claims that Geri simply didn't give her guests enough notice when planning the big day.

"Even though [Geri and Christian] have been together quite a while, it was like, ‘Oh I’m getting married in a few weeks,'" Mel explained to TooFab.com. "I was like, ‘No change the date!’"

Despite missing Geri's wedding, Mel said she was keen to hear how it went, and added that she would be arriving in England in "a few hours" to catch up with her pals. It seems she stuck to her word, if this Instagram snap posted by Mel earlier today is anything to go by:


A photo posted by @officialmelb on

"Love my girls!!! Friendship never ends it just gets stronger," the singer wrote next to the sweet photo of herself, Geri and Emma.

Still no sign of Victoria or Mel C, though…


Actress Rebel Wilson was forced to take to Twitter this week to address allegations she had been lying about her age, but it turns out she's not the only star bending the truth when it comes to her date of birth.

A woman claiming to be a former classmate of Rebel's says the actress' real age is 36, seven years older than the Bridesmaids star says she is. "Her name is, or was, Melanie Elizabeth Bownds, and she’s 36, she was born in 1979 and we left school in 1997," the source told Australian magazine Women's Day.

Rebel herself tweeted her annoyance at the Australian media for printing such a story, writing, "OMG I'm actually a 100 year old mermaid formerly known as "CC Chalice" ….thanks shady Australian press for your tall poppy syndrome x"

Ouch. Whether the story is the truth or just a bitter ex-classmate trying to get some press remains to be seen, but Rebel's not alone in telling a few age-related fibs.

Here are some other female stars who've hidden their real age, with mixed results…

1. Jennifer Lopez
If J-Lo had her way, we'd all still think she was a couple of years younger than she is, but unfortunately the singer was outed back in 1999. For years J-Lo insisted her date of birth was sometime after 1970, but after police questioned her following a nightclub shooting involving her then-boyfriend Puff Daddy, her real date of birth was revealed as 1969, making her 45 now. All the same, Jenn still says her "mental age" is somewhere between 16 and 18. 


2. Mila Kunis
Mila is definitely guilty of lying about her age to further her career – but in her case it was to make her seem older not younger. The mum-of-one auditioned for That 70s Show aged just 14, telling casting directors she was almost 18. Luckily for her, Mila was kept on as a cast member even when her real age came to light, and went on to star in the show alongside Ashton Kutcher for 8 years. To think if she hadn't lied, little Wyatt Isabelle might not even exist!


3. Nadine Coyle
"What date ah birth did ah say?" Poor Nadine Coyle was kicked out of the ill-fated Irish Popstars band Six after telling the judges she was 18 rather than 16. It all worked out in the end though, as she went on better things with UK Popstars: The Rivals girlband Girls Aloud. 


4. Geri Halliwell
As well as claiming she was 21 (rather than 25) when the Spice Girls first launched, Geri also celebrated her "29th birthday" quite a few times before bandmate Victoria Beckham revealed to the press that Ginger Spice had already turned 30. Meow!




It was arguably the biggest showbiz event of the weekend, but Geri Halliwell’s wedding left us pondering over the absence of three of her former bandmates.

With just Emma Bunton turning up on the day, and the rest of the girls sending messages of love and luck to the bride, fans wondered why Victoria, Mel B and Mel C didn’t make it to Geri’s nuptials.

Well, the reason behind their no-shows has been revealed, and it’s all down to a bit of an organisation blunder on Geri’s part, apparently.

Despite rumours of rifts, it has emerged that the girls were unable to attend yesterday due to receiving the invitations at such late notice. According to a source, Geri was keen to hold back the invitations for fear the information would leak, leaving Victoria and the two Mels already tied up with work and family commitments on the big day.

A source told The Mirror: “There hasn’t been a big fall out. They have all been texting each other. Geri left the invitations quite late so they didn’t leak and unfortunately some of the girls couldn’t make it.”

So there you have it, guys – friendship never does end!



As if her wedding day wasn’t already special enough, Geri Halliwell’s new husband Christian Horner pulled out all the stops to give his bride a truly amazing day.

As is tradition, the Formula One boss gave the former Spice Girls star a gorgeous, thoughtful gift on their romantic day; however, his choice of gift surpassed anything we could ever imagine receiving.

So, what do you get the Spice Girl who has everything? An Aston Martin car, of course. Not just any Aston Martin, either: a £350,000 DB5 retro model.

Christian got the idea to gift Geri with the car – which is the very same model that featured in the James Bond movie Goldfinger – after she reportedly mentioned that it was her favourite.

The man certainly did well. Lucky Geri!

The 42-year-old looked stunning as she arrived at St Mary’s Church for her nuptials yesterday, wearing a beautiful couture lace gown and gold Prada stilettos.

While former bandmate Emma Bunton was the only Spice Girl in attendance at the wedding, the band was well-represented; Geri’s daughter Bluebell, Mel B’s daughter Madison, and Emma’s sons Beau and Tate were among the wedding party that are said to have walked the bride down the aisle.



It was wedding bells for Geri Halliwell today, as the former Spice Girl married her sweetheart Christian Horner in a summer ceremony in Bedfordshire, England.

Geri looked every bit the perfect bride in a gorgeous couture lace gown with a full skirt and a nipped-in waist, accessorising the princess-style dress with gold Prada stilettos and vintage pearl earrings.


Geri and Christian said "I do" at St. Mary's Church, surrounded by family and friends including Myleene Klass, Amanda Holden, Jennifer Saunders and Geri's fellow Spice Girls Emma Bunton and Mel B.

Victoria Beckham and Mel C were unable to attend due to other commitments, though Victoria did share this sweet throwback picture in honour of the big day:

Geri herself tweeted her excitement before the ceremony, simply posting a smiling emoji that said it all:

The singer shared some of this morning's wedding preparation with her followers, taking to Instagram to post pictures of her something old (her vintage earrings), new (her lace dress), borrowed (a diamond necklace) and blue (a sky-blue ribbon in honour of her daughter Bluebell). 

So sweet. 

The big day was not without its drama though, with the groom's parents choosing not to attend the ceremony, something many believe was a show of their disapproval for the marriage. Christian left his girlfriend Beverley Allen for Geri in March 2014, just six months after the former couple became parents to a daughter, Olivia.

We hope that Geri and Christian enjoyed their big day all the same…

Congrats to the newlyweds!




As Geri Halliwell is set to marry Christian Horner today at the Woburn Estate in Bedfordshire, we were hoping for a Spice Girls reunion.

Unfortunately, Victoria Beckham and Mel C will not be able to make it due to work arrangements.

As Mel B and Emma Bunton will be attending, their children are going to walk Geri down the aisle.

How sweet.

Geri's own daughter, nine-year-old Bluebell, will be joined by Emma's sons, Beau, seven, and Tate, four. Mel B's three-year-old daughter Madison will also join them.

A source told The Sun: “Geri wanted her wedding to be a family affair with her own immediate relatives and her Spice Girls family."

“The Spice Girls were an important part of her life and she’s over the moon that Mel and Emma’s children can play a part,” they added. 

Christian's parents are choosing not to attend the celebrations as they are still upset that he broke up with his partner of 14 years, Beverly Allen.

A source revealed to the Mirror: “Geri and Christian are disappointed that his parents aren’t coming, but all his brothers, close family and pals with be there.”

We bet it will be a lovely day.
