Geri Horner has purchased a car which previously belonged to Ringo Starr.

The 45-year-old singer - who has 11-year-old daughter Bluebell with her former partner Sacha Gervasi, and 12-month-old son Montague with her husband Christian Horner - has revealed she once splashed the cash on a Mini which was owned by the Beatles rocker, and although she spent more than she would have liked on the motor, she knows it has collectible value.

When asked what her most extravagant purchase has been, she said: ''I bought Ringo Starr's Mini. It was a lot of money for a Mini but it belonged to a Beatle, so it's a collector's item. It's a piece of history.''

Although it's likely the former Spice Girl doesn't drive the valuable vehicle, if she did take it out for a spin she'd make sure not to put a dent in it whilst parking, as she believes ''reverse parking'' is one of her hidden talents.

When asked what secret skills she has, she said: ''Reverse parking. I can talk to anyone about anything. I'm really good at chess and UNO. Maybe I'm not that good at chess, but I like it.''

It isn't just cars that Geri likes to splash her cash on either, as she's also recently purchased a woolly hat which makes her look like ''a really big nerd'' - although her husband has banned her from wearing it outside.

Asked by TV Life magazine if she likes anything that isn't good for her image, she said: ''I bought this woolly hat recently. I look like a really big nerd when I put it on. I love being comfortable and warm, but my husband told me I should never be see wearing it.''
