TOO SPICY; EXCLUSIVE Top of the Pops tell Geri to tone down sexy video.

Byline: JESSICA CALLAN

BBC bosses have cut Geri Halliwell's bottom-wiggling scenes out of her new video - fearing they were too raunchy for young Top of The Pops fans.

It has also insisted on vetting Geri's outfit for tonight's show, where she performs her new single Ride It. An insider said: "They basically have Geri on boob watch.

"She's a lot bustier these days and they are scared she might pop out. It's like something out of the dark ages."

TV executives were worried the former Spice Girl's video would be too much for Top of the Pops Saturday, which is watched by six to 12 year olds.

In it Geri dresses as a policegirl and spanks a male model with a truncheon before flashing her bra. She also sticks the truncheon between the man's legs. But it was a close-up of lifting her pink dress and shaking her bum which proved too much.

Geri, 32, has made the most of her fuller figure since axing severe diets and boasted recently: "I feel much more sexual."

The BBC said: "TOTP Saturday will air Geri's video without a couple of unsuitable shots.

"TOTP haven't discussed what Geri will wear on tonight's show."
