British singer Geri Halliwell is voicing a character for a new Disney children's Tv show.

The former Spice Girls star will play Isabella Roarsome in Disney Junior show Henry Hugglemonster, which is set to premiere in the U.K. on 8 February (13).

Halliwell's character is described as a "spirited and popular monster pop star" and the singer reveals her six-year-old daughter Bluebell helped her learn the songs she would perform.

She says, "Being involved in Henry Hugglemonster has been such a joy! The show has a truly positive message, teaching kids to be themselves and reminding them of the importance of family values.

"This is a fun, sweet and lively Tv show that invites everybody in and appeals on a number of different levels for little ones and mums alike.

"What's more, it's been so lovely to share this experience with my own daughter. She even helped me learn the songs for my role as Isabella and she can't wait to catch the show on Disney Junior!"

Brian Blessed and Brenda Blethyn are also among the voice cast for the show.
