Geri Halliwell says her X Factor judging stint gave her a taste for music again

Geri Halliwell has revealed she wants to return to the music scene.

The singer, whose post Spice Girl ventures have included penning children's books and designing a beachwear range, said being a guest judge on The X Factor tempted her to go back to her roots.

Asked whether she would be returning, she told Easy Living magazine: "Oh yes, although I've never left music. I'm always writing lyrics and songs. I will be returning to music. Definitely."

Quizzed on whether she would come back as a solo artist, she said: "I think we've (the Spice Girls) already done the reunion."

Ginger Spice also spoke about her boyfriend, Henry Beckwith, in the magazine interview saying: "Oh my God, he's such a posh gent, it's funny. I like that in a man, it feels strong and stable."

The former chart-topper has followed in the fashion footsteps of her ex-bandmate Victoria Beckham by creating a beachwear range for Next.

She said: "I actually didn't ask her advice on this one. Victoria's doing very high-end, high-fashion, and what she's done is brilliant. But she's always been like that.

"I remember when I was in the studio writing the lyrics for Who Do You Think You Are, and Victoria had been out shopping, and had gone missing for hours.

"She came in and she showed me these Manolo Blahnik shoes - and I didn't know they were designer. I didn't really know what designer was."
