Halliwell trapped in elevator

Former Spice Girl star Geri Halliwell kept her fans waiting at a book signing on Monday - because she was trapped in an elevator.

The singer-turned-author was rescued by firemen after she was trapped for an hour at the Lakeside Shopping Centre in Essex, England when the service elevator broke down.

The 35-year-old was due to sign copies of her new children's book, 'Ugenia Lavender', at a book store - but waiting fans were told by staff there had been "an incident".

Once she was finally rescued, Halliwell explained the delay to the waiting children saying: "I got stuck in a lift."
