Geri Halliwell 'booed' and labelled 'awful' as she makes her debut as guest judge on the X Factor

Geri Halliwell was met with boos from the audience when she made her debut as a guest judge on The X Factor yesterday.

The former Spice Girls star's appearance at the Glasgow auditions was less than successful, with some fans even chanting for the return of judge Dannii Minogue, who is missing the auditions stage because she is heavily pregnant.

Geri was accused of being 'awful' and her comments 'not making sense' by fans who angrily took to internet forums to vent their feelings about the 37-year-old star.


Hopeful: Before arriving at the auditions, Geri appeared to be happy and excited

The singer is reported to have angered fans soon after she began in her role as guest judge, by going against the crowd and refusing to put through a singer called Katie when she had the casting vote.


A source told the Daily Mirror: 'Geri had the chance to please the crowd and many were shouting Katie's name. But Geri ignored them and turned Katie down, causing the crowd to go crazy.

'Eventually they invited Katie back to try again, but Geri never recovered from that.'


'Awful': Geri Halliwell's appearance as guest judge on The X Factor did not go down well with the angry crowd

She is also said to have embarrassed fellow judge Cheryl Cole by calling her a 'gorgeous, gorgeous girl' before saying they should form a new band, adding: 'We should be Steps or Abba!'


Fans are even said to have started chanting for judge Dannii Minogue to return

Things quickly went from bad and worse as Geri allegedly later stormed off stage.

One fan wrote on an internet forum: 'Geri was awful. After one audition she left the judges table before being followed by Simon.

'Cheryl and Louis looked bemused while the warm up guy announced that we were having an early break.

'It wasn't until a few auditions in she really started to irritate.

'She also gave irrelevant comments. One person said they were a personal trainer.'

However, a spokesperson for The X Factor said: 'There were reactions from the crowd.

'There were reactions to all the judges as much as there was to Geri.'

Geri is the first in a string of guest judges invited in to stand in for Dannii Minogue.

Yesterday it was announced that Mama Do singer Pixie Lott would join the judging panel at the auditions in Birmingham.
