Geri Horner has been dubbed “Cringer spice” after viewers hit out at her “forced” tribute to the Queen during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Ms Horner, who is best known for her role as Ginger Spice in the girl band, the Spice Girls, was one of many celebrities to pay tribute to Her Majesty during last night’s Party at the Palace.

The event took place outside the gates of Buckingham Palace in front of a 22,000 strong crowd, while many more watched on TV.

Speaking about Her Majesty on a pre-recorded segment of the show, Ms Horner said: “'Our Queen, kind, loving, strong, serving our country, the Commonwealth, uniting us all together.”

But fans have since hit out at the speech, with fans hitting out at her lack of “sincerity”.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Geri Horner has gone from Ginger Spice to Cringer Spice.”

While another added: “Watching Geri Horner doing a tribute!!! What an embarrassment.

“Didn't seem sincere, more forced and written for her”

Another said: “Dear God. Geri Halliwell has already forced me to put Netflix on and it hasn't even started yet.”

The backlash continued, with a less than satisfied person writing: “I think I've just been sick in my mouth."
