Sporty Spice! Geri Halliwell shows off waterskiing skills in Sardinia

Perhaps Geri Halliwell was christened with the wrong moniker when she was dubbed Ginger Spice!

The former singer showed off some waterskiing skills worthy of the Sporty Spice nickname off the coast of the upmarket Porto Cervo in Sardinia.

Geri managed to stay up on the skis before eventually crashing into the Mediterranean sea.

And waterskiing wasn't the only thing she got up to while on holiday with Henry Beckwith: the star was also seen attempting to play pitch and putt (in wedges), and relaxing with a very British cup of tea while soaking up the sun in one of her own bikini designs for Next.

Geri and Henry are staying at the same exclusive hotel where Peter Crouch and Abbey Cancy enjoyed a pre-wedding holiday last month.

Halliwell's romantic Sardinian trip follows a three-week holiday on the French Riviera last month.

It's all right for some...

Star spotting! See who's been snapped on holiday so far this year:
