Residents of a care home in Oxfordshire enjoyed some winter ‘spice’ when they visited Geri Horner, née Halliwell, at her home to appear on a home-cooking segment for ITV’s This Morning.
The former Spice Girl baked biscuits with her young daughter Bluebell and presenter Rylan Clark-Neal, before serving up the treats for the residents of Featherton House care home to sample.
Holly Rose, care home manager at Featherton House, said it was a “real treat for everyone who went,” adding: “It was lovely for our staff and residents to be invited to Geri Halliwell’s home to appear live on This Morning. It’s not every day you get to meet a celebrity and visit her beautiful home.
“It is important for our residents to participate in interesting and exciting activities within the local community, and visiting Geri and appearing on national television was something they will never forget.
“All the staff and residents at Featherton House would like to say a huge thank you to This Morning for making the event possible, and to Geri and Rylan for being so welcoming on the day.”
As a tribute to the late George Michael, the residents also joined in a singalong with Geri and Rylan whilst sharing a glass of sherry.
Care home resident Jean Waddup, said: “We had a lovely time visiting Geri and being on This Morning. Her house is absolutely beautiful and everyone was very friendly for the whole time we were there.
“I think it’s brilliant that the programme invited us to come and celebrate with Geri, Bluebell and Rylan.”
Featherton House, in Deddington, is part of Wren Retirement Living and managed by Healthcare Management Solutions. The home provides residential care for up to 25 older people and was rated ‘good’ in its last Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection in September 2017.
