Spice Girls Reunion Providing Publicity Opportunities For Many

Jul 18th, 2007 // 11 Comments

phonyspice.jpgIn anticipation of the Spice Girls’ reunion tour, the Daily Mail catches up with five Spice Girls impersonators–pictured above–and lets them reminisce about the whirlwind of fame they experienced during the group’s height. Natalie Peters, the 31-year-old who’s a dead ringer for Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton, talks about what she’s been doing lately:

Luckily, I never gave up my day job – I juggled my lookalike work around the bank, and these days, if a job were to come up, I’d have to ask Boots, where I’m currently working as a customer services assistant, for time off.

With the Spice Girls re-forming for their tour, I’m excited about the prospect of more lookalike work, but as yet nothing has materialised.

Even in everyday life I still get the odd member of the public doing a double-take when they see me.

But it’s only for a split second before they realise that however bad things may have got, Emma Bunton isn’t working in a chemist’s in Kent.

Well, no. But you have to admit: a spaghetti-sauce ad isn’t much of a step up.

    That version of Sporty Spice is pudgy. So of course, I like her.

    …or at least “curvier” than the original. Whatever. Yummy.

    Where to begin?
    1) No, No, No, No, Dude.
    2) NONE OF THESE WOMEN LOOK LIKE THE SPICE GIRLS.
    3) Maybe i don’t understand because i’m not from Britain (where maybe these ladies are on par with NSYNC or something), but does anyone truly give a flying fuck about the Spice Girls? I cannot imagine one single person I know (including many women who LOVED Them 10 years or so ago) who is even the slightest bit interested in this cash grab… i mean, reunion.
    4) Beckham Spice said she has never read a book in her life- I believe her.

    They look like the Spice Girls if you happen to be almost legally blind and are not wearing glasses.

    Fake Ginger Spice looks like my 8th grade teacher.

    unlike the impersonator in this picture, posh spice does not have an actual figure.

    it’s more “bobble head on a toothpick” IRL.

    unlike the impersonator in this picture, posh spice does not have an actual brain

    1. That Sporty looks even more like Chan Marshall than Sporty.

    2. If Posh refers to herself as “mummy” she’s referring to being a parent to her sprogs, not saying she’s supposed to have the neck of an actual mummified ancient, as displayed here.

    Um, tell me if I’m wrong, but… isn’t Fake Scary Spice actually white? It looks like she sprayed brown on her face and boobs, and forgot about the rest of her body.

    Heh…”sprogs”.

    Sorry but NONE of them pass the test. Famous? Mistaken as Spice Girls? Where, at a home for the blind?
