X Factor 2012: Geri Halliwell loved her time as guest judge!

Geri Halliwell (X Factor 2012)

Geri Halliwell has said she loved her time as a guest judge on The X Factor, despite coming across rather poorly at the weekend!

The crazy Spice Girl couldn't stop talking during her time on the panel, and seemed to rub Gary Barlow up the wrong way after taking a swipe at Take That.

But Geri said: "I loved it. I’m naturally a team player so it was lovely to be part of a team.

"The atmosphere was really cozy and the Judges really welcomed me to the fold. People can be cynical about talent shows but they’ve been around for fifty years and it’s a fantastic way of finding new talent. The X Factor opens doors for people who may not necessarily look the part or are looking for second chances."

Speaking about bonding with the panel, Geri explained: "I’ve known Louis for a very long time. He’s like an old friend. Gary is really sweet and caring. I’ve gone to him for advice in the past. Tulisa is really authentic; you could see how passionate she was about championing Little Mix last year."

In an interview with the official ITV1 X Factor website, Geri also insisted she wasn't embarrassed by her red carpet entrance in Liverpool.

She said: "I spoke to my mum about it too. Like Mel [C], she reassured me that my entrance was classic me. I didn’t really plan it; all my most outrageous moments are spontaneous."
