Channel 4 says it's not involved in Geri Halliwell sitcom

The Spice Girls singer posed a teaser for the show last week (July 19)

Channel 4 has said it is not involved with the sitcom the Spice Girl's Geri Halliwell is working on.

Last week (July 19), the singer posted a trailer to the show – called Geri: Life Sucks, which you can watch above. Studio Objective Productions, the company behind Channel 4 shows Fresh Meat and Peep Show, are helping the singer develop the project. A spokesperson told NME: "Objective Productions are currently developing an idea for a TV show with Geri Halliwell in which she laughs gamely at herself and her fame. The comedy will see Geri try to balance the everyday pressures of being a mother and an international pop sensation."

Although some reports had claimed that the pilot was for Channel 4, the broadcaster says that it is not involved in the project. A spokesperson said: "Although Channel 4 has been linked to Geri Halliwell & the making of her sitcom this isn’t actually the case. We were never working with Geri on this project."

Earlier this year, Halliwell admitted that she was "weak under fire" when she deleted a tweet that paid tribute to the late prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. When the news broke that the former PM had died, Halliwell wrote: "Thinking of our 1st Lady of girl power, Margaret Thatcher, a green grocer's daughter who taught me any thing is possible...x." She subsequently deleted the post and issued an apology. A few days later, she explained her actions in a lengthy blog post, writing: "I felt compelled to tweet my thoughts for a female leader, in a world governed by men…[But] I was so confused and overwhelmed by some of the feedback I received that I took my tweet down and for that I was called spineless."
