The good people at Madam Tussauds, acting as a barometer of popular taste, are thinking that maybe it's time to axe Geri Halliwell from their line-up of famous wax effigies. Which is being kind - they could have just made the skirt an inch shorter and relocated it to the chamber of horrors.

Of course, they don't melt down all of the past-it figures - they only do the body, keeping the head in some sort of store. (They used to display this second XI of heads in Wookey Hole, which was quite an eerie experience - you come out of the caves and suddenly find yourself in a room with the faces of Edward Heath's cabinet staring back at you. Geri would feel quite at home amongst them, we're sure.)

Hang about... has someone got there first?
