Geri Halliwell described herself as feeling like "a Londoner" after taking her first Tube journey in nearly two decades.

The 40-year-old Spice Girl was so delighted with her short journey on the Piccadilly Line that she sent a series of tweets describing her experience - complete with tips on how to use the Underground.

Geri posted a picture of herself standing on the platform at Leicester Square, wearing a camouflage jacket and brown boots, with the message: "Not so bad!!".

A photograph of her emerging on to the street at Piccadilly Circus - a journey that takes one minute, according to the Transport for London website's journey planner tool - then followed, with Geri writing: "Loved it!!i'm a Londoner! I'm liberated!!".

The mother-of-one put up another photograph of her sitting on the Tube, partly covering her face with a copy of the Financial Times, and apologised for taking so long to use public transport.

"Forgive me for being a brat:-after 17 years & yesterday's 2 hrs of traffic-lets save time & money-the tube!", she wrote.

The Look At Me singer then penned a series of tips to others not familiar with using the London Underground.

She wrote: "Tube tip - doors stops at platform entrance,or below sign ,more seats at end carriage.oh & it's not smelly just saying."

Twitter users were equally amused and bemused by the singer's messages.

@MissAnnebelleL asked: "Is Geri Halliwell going to explain how we top up our oysters next?" And @Done_Can said: "I'd love to see Geri Halliwell travel on the megabus. Wouldn't be so chipper then!".

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
