Inside Geri Horner’s 50th birthday bash as Spice Girls reunite at star-studded party

Geri Horner pulled out all the stops for her 50th birthday bash, which was attended by the Spice Girls on Saturday (Nov 5).

The mum-of-two held the party at her palatial pile in Oxfordshire, which she shares with husband and Red Bull boss, Christian Horner, 48.

The artist known as Ginger Spice actually turned 50 in August, but postponed her party following news of the Queen’s death.

Geri invited 160 guests to celebrate her milestone bash, including Victoria Beckham, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Rylan and David Walliams.

Also at the celebration were David Beckham, Emma’s hubby Jade Jones, Holly Willoughby, Penny Lancaster, David Walliams, Poppy Delevigne, Myleene Klass, Tana Ramsey and Geri’s ex Chris Evans.

Mel B, who recently got engaged to fiance Rory McPhee, was reportedly not in attendance.

Welsh legend Dame Shirley Bassey sang Happy Birthday to Geri before a performance by X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke.

A live jazz music band also accompanied the festivities, which included an impressive fireworks display and a sumptuous three-course dinner.

The glam guests were treated to champagne on tap by black tie-dressed staff at the bash – which is rumoured to have cost a cool £400,000.

Gorgeous pics from the party have been shared, including a stunning shot of Victoria, Emma and Mel C, who look incredible dressed in black.

There’s also a beautiful group shot in which Geri, sporting a beautiful long white frock, looks delighted to be surrounded by her loved ones – including daughter Bluebell, 16, who she shares with screenwriter Sacha Gervasi.

The star’s hubby Christian made a heartfelt speech at the party and was snapped slow dancing with his wife on the dancefloor.

Strictly star Rylan, 34, shared a string of videos on social media, including a clip of Victoria, Geri, Mel C and Emma singing along the Spice Girls’ iconic Say You’ll Be There.

The presenter also took to Instagram sharing a pic of himself wearing the Union Jack coat he donned during his performance of a Spice Girls medley while competing on The X Factor in 2012.

Mum-of-four, Victoria posted an adorable clip of her and Baby Spice hugging as they watched back a Spice Girls performance at Geri’s party.

The artist formerly known as Posh Spice captioned the cute pic: “Special @spicegirls memories with @emmaleebunton Love you xx”.
