Chatty Geri Horner jokes that she 'ruined' Saturday Kitchen
She just would not stop talking, but it was all rather entertaining for most viewers.
Geri Horner jokingly asked if she had “ruined” Saturday Kitchen by talking too much, meaning host Matt Tebbutt was unable to interview her.
The Spice Girls star was the guest on the BBC programme and left viewers largely amused at how talkative she was throughout.
Geri, 44, showed off a chatty demeanour on the weekly food programme, but Matt later mentioned to her that he had failed to ask her any of his prepared questions.
Matt said, holding up his flash card: “Look at all these questions, I’ve got all these questions to ask!”
Geri apologised, adding: “Have I ruined your show?”
The singer then addressed the camera directly, quipping: “It is hard being a presenter and he’s got someone in his ear, telling him what to do.
“He’s got to cook, he’s multi-tasking like we women do.”
Urging viewers to take part in the vote, in which they would choose if Geri would eat a dish made from her food heaven or food hell, Matt referred to her conversational style once again.
He said: “Geri’s fate is down to you at home. If you liked that interview, go heaven.
“If you thought she talked too much over the top of it, go hell!”
But it was all in good fun, as Matt tweeted about Geri after the show: “Love love her.”
Love love her. https://t.co/6EBDnjzmXQ— Matt Tebbutt (@matt_tebbutt) June 17, 2017
Viewers were torn over Geri’s stint in the kitchen studio, taking to Twitter in their droves.
Goodness! Has Geri not spoken to anyone for five years? Calm down love. #SaturdayKitchen— LyndsayH (@thepetitepatiss) June 17, 2017
Have I missed something, is this "Geri's Kitchen"? What is she rambling about? She is so irritating I can't watch any more. #SaturdayKitchen— Suzie Ferguson (@SuzieFerguson1) June 17, 2017
#SaturdayKitchen Great Show Matt. Fab guest Geri, she nearly took over the whole show! Lol— Adrian Smith (@mr_Ady_Smith) June 17, 2017
However, for some Geri’s animated attitude was refreshing.
#SaturdayKitchen I think Geri is entertaining and fun. Stop being mean, all you boring and unoriginal people..— Jane (@HasHerMoments) June 17, 2017
Oh Geri! loved your performance, loved Matt's irritated response to you... you made my Saturday LOL x— THELANDLORD (@Thelandlord5) June 17, 2017
The end of the programme saw her being made to endure a feast created from her food hell, lobster.
Geri is unveiling her first music in more than a decade on Monday, a tribute single entitled Angel In Chains for her close friend, the late George Michael.
