Rylan Clark would probably be the first to admit that his younger self wouldn’t believe it if he told them he was hanging out with a Spice Girl.
But the TV star, and self-confessed fan of the iconic girl group, has made a firm friend in Geri Horner.
And Rylan has now shared snaps from his day with the singer and her family at their luxury country home.
The BBC Radio 2 presenter headed over for a ‘lunch date’ with Ginger Spice Geri, 49, and her husband Christian Horner, 48.
“Little lunch date @therealgerihalliwell @christianhorner,” Rylan captioned his post to his 1.5m followers.
The first image showed the 33-year-old towering over his famous pal as she sweetly nestled under his arm.
Rylan then poked fun at the height difference with Christian as he leaned on his shoulder next to a field of goats.
They were joined in the pic by Christian and Geri’s son Montague who was being lifted up by an unseen person in the background, which could have been Geri’s elder daughter, Bluebell.
And the fun didn’t just stop at lunch and a roam around the farm.
Rylan shared clips of himself having a twang on the guitar while Geri sat behind a drum kit.
The former X Factor star showed off his musical talents with a few chords from The White Stripes track, Seven Nation Army.
Geri then swapped with her husband as she became a cheerleader while videoing the pair having a jamming session.
But it was, however, the first picture of Geri and Rylan that stunned fans.
@elainebudd808 commented: “Oh my god I thought he had his arm round a little girl it doesn’t look like her.”
“Omg Geri looks about 12 here. I’ll have what she is on please,” @lisa_mcbr1de said.

“Wow! At a glance. I thought that was a young girl . Not Geri,” @ yvonne_e_0121 echoed.
But fans were just simply loving them together.
“HOW INCREDIBLE that you get to be friends with one of your childhood idols!!!” @ georgielondon1 said.
