Victoria Newton loves Geri Halliwell

What a turn around, eh? After a long period where Geri Halliwell had been cast as some sort of hapless pratfall artist, with stories about dogs getting her thrown out of gyms and running photos of her arse, all of a sudden, Bizarre has decided that she's one of the nation's treasures.

For example, back when her single Desire struggled, Newton flapped out crowing:

Geri: It's all over, dear

GERI HALLIWELL's next job could be flipping burgers after her new single bombed in the midweek charts.

If the former SPICE GIRL was drinking in the last chance saloon before, the barman has just called time — her track Desire is a feeble No18.

But this morning, it turns out that she's sexy and amazing:
Ginger has Geri good pins

SPICE curl GERI HALLIWELL steps out last night — and shows fans why she’s a showbiz leg-end.

Ginger, 34, hit the town for her good friend GEORGE MICHAEL’s 45th birthday party.

And she looked a million dollars with a shock of corkscrew locks — and a sexy black dress slashed to the thigh for the bash at the Berkeley Hotel, Knightsbridge, central London.

Goodness, that's positively gushing. It's almost as if Newton is worried that Geri might be involved in a big event soon and doesn't want to be shut out of the exclusive backstage coverage, isn't it?

It's notable that, in the box where The Sun usually links to its older stories about the subject of the one you're reading, rather than stacking up previous stories about Geri, there's just one link to the Spice Girls reunion story.
