I'm Oxfamous; EXCLUSIVE: pounds 10m GERI POPS IN TO CHARITY SHOP TO SUSS THE BARGAINS.
GERI Halliwell's new album isn't selling too well and she's just put her mansion on the market for pounds 4.5millon - but who would have thought things were this bad?
The ex-Spice Girl, 28 - worth around pounds 10million - has taken to rooting round charity shops hunting for bargains.
But even though she might be down on her luck Geri knows what she really wants - and headed straight for the Oxfam branch in London's Kings Road for some second-hand designer chic. Taking a tip from fellow pop queens Madonna and Kylie Minogue, Geri spent 30 minutes sifting through the high-class junk. Last year Kylie wiggled to the top of the charts wearing a 50p pair of gold hot pants, so maybe Geri was hoping to repeat the trick for her new single Scream If You Wanna Go Faster.
And earlier this year Mrs Ritchie was spotted nipping into another London Oxfam store after seeing a nice pounds 5 blue pullover in the window.
Sadly neither a rather fetching Mao Tse Tung T-shirt, nor a delightful blue M&S swimsuit could tempt fitness fanatic Geri. Neither could two books on offer for pounds 1 each - workout bible Callanetics and a novel, The Great Hunger. So she emerged empty-handed.
One thing Geri certainly wouldn't have been interested in was one of Vanessa Feltz's old dresses. The TV star donated 1,000 of them to Oxfam two months ago ...but they were all size 22.
Geri, of course, knows a thing or two about charitable acts, having spent two years as a UNICEF ambassador...and then dating Chris Evans.
What's on offer
Pink Moschino dress with handbag.........pounds 65
Denim jacket..........pounds 12
Pepe hipster shorts..pounds 9
Mao Tse Tung T-shirt..pounds 5
Blue M&S swimsuit....pounds 3
The Great Hunger by Cecil Woodham Smith.........pounds 1

BYE BUYS: Even the Mao Tse Tung T-shirt in the window couldn't tempt Geri as she emerges empty-handed from the Chelsea Oxfam branch; CALL CUSTOMER: Geri just can't seem to understand how Madonna and Kylie can find clothes in charity shops but she can't ...even in upwardly mobile Kings Road; Pictures: bigpicturesphoto.com
