Ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell (now Geri Horner) finally celebrated her 50th birthday over the weekend. The big break was actually planned for September, but because of the death of the Queen († 96), Ginger Spice, known as a passionate royalist, postponed the party. But postponed does not mean canceled – and so there was a decent array of stars in honor of the singer.
This weekend she was seen partying with her idol Dame Shirley who she claimed has made her ‘dream come true’ by attending her birthday bash.
In addition to the Spice Girls, there were other top-class guests at Geri’s party. In addition to Dame Shirley Bassey (85), who is said to have performed “Happy Birthday” with her unique voice, Penny Lancaster (51, wife of singer Rod Steward) and British TV presenter Holly Willoughby (41) were among the 160 invited guests.
Halliwell shared a series of photos from the star-studded event that revealed Dame Shirley Bassey and Hugh Grant were guests as well.
“What a night!” she captioned the Instagram slideshow. “Nov 5 th @dameshirleybassey — Our hearts are full. So full of love. You made my dream come true. I have loved you since I was a little girl. Thank you.”
