THE NEW QUEEN OF TARTS
GERI, who has taken her husband’s surname, is throwing everything into making the marriage work. She said: ‘I do cook for him, I do like to see that he’s happy.’
She likes to boast of her cooking skills on Instagram, in one shot she poses in a Cath Kidston apron while serving home-made plum crumble. She was crowned Star Baker in the 2016 Sport Relief Bake Off, her tarts, ginger biscuits and chocolate cake impressing the judges.
Viewers were surprised to find the former Spice Girl such a dab hand in the kitchen. They were also startled by her plummy vowels. ‘Why is Geri doing a fake posh voice?’ asked one.
She says she is trying to navigate a new identity as an ‘authentic’ woman who is a wife, and a mother, and someone who works.
