Liz Truss reveals Geri Horner told her ‘go for it’ at Lionesses match amid leadership contest after Spice Girls star posed with Nadine Dorries
Geri Horner appears to be backing Liz Truss in the leadership contest after reportedly giving the candidate warm words of support. The Spice Girls singer is already facing backlash after photos were shared of her hugging Tory minister Nadine Dorries at the Lionesses’ historic match last night, which saw the women’s England football team bring home the trophy in the Euro 2022 final against Germany. Many of Geri’s fans quickly expressed their disappointment that the Wannabe singer would align herself with the Conservative Party. However, Ms Dorries wasn’t the only Tory MP that Geri was seen mingling with as a photo has also emerged of the popstar hugging Ms Truss while posing for a photo at Wembley Stadium. Ms Truss, who is Foreign Secretary, is currently going up against former Chancellor Rishi Sunak in the battle for Prime Minister after Boris Johnson resigned last month. Not only was Geri happy to pose for a photo with the candidate, but Ms Truss has also revealed the encouraging words she received from the pop icon. ‘She said “go for it”, she was very positive,’ the minister told Mail Plus. It comes after Ms Dorries shared the photos of her and Geri giving each other a tight squeeze in the stands, with the caption: ‘Girl power radiating from Wembley tonight.’ The post didn’t go down well with some of Geri’s fans, with one tweeting: ‘Geri has reached peak Tory. V upsetting,’ while another commented: ‘Finding out ginger Geri Halliwell Spice is a massive Tory , has ruined my day.’Another Twitter user weighed in: ‘Geri Halliwell actively embracing a woman who voted against gay marriage, who was only recently demonising the trans community, is 100% not shocking.
