09.07.2002 Geri Halliwell And George Michael Are Friends Again

Remember all the stories and reports that spread across the papers when George Michael confirmed that he did fall out with Geri Halliwell since she's one who likes to court the press and all?

Well, reports have now surfaced that suggest the two singers are friends again.

Apparently, Geri has been spotted staying at George's pad in LA where she is completing the second volume of her autobiography.

Also, it seems that a source close to the both of them revealed to the papers that we can expect two new tracks on Geri's next studio album from George which is due out early next year.

07.07.2002 Geri and Evans go head to red

GINGER NUTS Geri Halliwell and Chris Evans will slug it out in the new ITV Popstars series, I can exclusively reveal. 

The pair, who dated for a week in 1999, will be on rival teams picking two new bands to battle it out for a Christmas No1. 

Chris Evans only signed for the show on Thursday and will be making his first telly appearance since June 2000. 

Chris and Geri will earn around £150,000 EACH from the show, and endorsements after the series could see them double their money. 


An insider said: "It'll make great TV because they're sure to have it out with each other on screen. Geri has never forgiven Chris for dumping her. 

"She's got personal reasons to beat Chris by getting her band to the top spot." 

The show, Popstars—The Rivals, starts in September and the two teams of judges, including Pop Idol's Pete Waterman, will each pick their top band. 

But the dash for the No 1 spot won't be a two-horse race...Westlife also have a Christmas single planned. 

Let battle commence!
