Geri Horner thinks her younger self would find her ''boring'' now.
The 44-year-old singer - who is best known for being a member of 90s girl group Spice Girls - is gearing up to air her new documentary 'Geri's 1990s: My Drive to Freedom' where she will reflect on her life 20 years ago on Saturday (11.03.17), and has said she believes her younger self was more ''experimental'' than she is now, but insists she's still the same girl she used to be.
Speaking about how the version of herself from the Spice Girls days - when she was known as Ginger Spice - would react to the person she has become now, Geri said: ''Spice Girls Geri might think my hair colour now is boring, but we're all more experimental when we're young. Make-up is as much about war paint and armour as self-expression, and I remember feeling more confident when I put on my 'Batman' costume. But there's a Bruce Wayne side to me too.
''The person who enjoys dressing up is still in me. I went to a James Bond-themed work party of my husband's. I decided to go as a Bond baddy in a catsuit, black leather boots and gloves. When I walked in, everyone, apart from maybe three others, was in formal wear. It was a Bridget Jones moment, but I've always been like that. I was watching some old footage of myself the other day and while my Watford accent was stronger, what was coming out
of my mouth was the same old 'bla bla bla'.''
But the mum-of-two - who shares daughter Bluebell, 10, and son Montague, one month, with her husband Christian Horner - isn't worried about what other people think of her, and has passed that self-love on to her daughter.
Asked by the Daily Telegraph what Bluebell thinks Geri has taught her, the 'Wannabe' hitmaker said: ''I asked my daughter Bluebell the other day what values she thought I'd given her and she said, 'To love yourself and respect yourself for who you are.' If I've managed to do that, then that's something my younger self could be proud of.''
'Geri's 1990s: My Drive to Freedom' airs on BBC Two at 9pm on Saturday (11.03.17)
