Halliwell's ex prefers Beckham

Geri Halliwell's former fiancé has spoken out about the pair's doomed relationship - insisting the star's ex-bandmate Victoria Beckham is more his type.

Fabrizio Politi and Halliwell became engaged at Christmas following a whirlwind romance, but Halliwell ended the relationship last month.

Luxury yacht tycoon Politi was lucky enough to meet three of Halliwell's Spice Girls pals while they were dating and was especially taken with Beckham, who he feels shares his refined style.

He said: "To be honest, looks and dress-wise she was normally more my cup of tea than Geri as she dresses like me - a little more refined and elegant."

Politi refuses to reveal the reason for the split, only divulging that a "very bad situation" happened between the pair.
