Geri Halliwell is being lined up to host her own ITV1 chat show.

A pilot episode is being filmed in a few weeks’ time and if it proves a hit with TV bosses, the show is set to land a primetime weekday slot.

The 34-year-old is likely to rope in her celebrity friends as guests – the one-time Ginger Spice counts George Michael and David Walliams as her close pals, as well as her former bandmates of course.

A source told Broadcast magazine: “It’s really early days but the idea is that Geri could really get to the heart of issues with her guests.”

The pilot is being made by Talkback Thames, the company behind The X Factor.
Talkback confirmed it is in talks with Geri and the format is in development.

The singer is currently in the process of reinventing herself following the birth of daughter Bluebell Madonna. In addition to her TV career, she is writing a series of children’s books to be published next year.
