Geri Horner doesn't yet know what name she will use to release her upcoming fourth solo album

Geri Horner isn't sure what name she is going to release her solo album under.

The Spice Girls star - known as Ginger Spice in the group - is currently working on a new solo album and although she took her husband Christian Horner's surname after tying the knot with the Formula One team boss in May 2015 she could revert to her maiden moniker Halliwell for the record, or even just her first name.

Discussing the LP in an interview with The Guardian newspaper, she said: "I am releasing new music, and that is a conversation. I just cross that bridge ... I just think about Liz Taylor. Well, she remained Liz Taylor and got married many times."

Musing on what her fans know her as, she added: "Well, I think we're on first name terms, anyway."

Geri also revealed the album is going to be a departure from the high energy pop tunes she is famous for because, at 43, she's too old to be dancing around in minuscule outfits in her videos - just like she did in the promo for her cover version of 'It's Raining Men'.

The singer - who has a daughter, Bluebell, from a previous relationship - said: "You've got to move it on. I'm not going to be in my hotpants going, 'Still got it!' "

The most famous outfit Geri ever wore during her time in the Spice Girls was the Union Jack mini-dress she squeezed her curves into for the band's performance of 'Who Do You Think You Are' to open the 1997 BRIT Awards.

And she is set to reunite with the Spice Girls - which also include Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Victoria Beckham - this year to celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band.

Geri has been working on some solo tracks with Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, after the friends decided the time was right to get in the studio together.

She has previously revealed she wants her fourth studio album - her first release since 2005's 'Passion' - to give women in their 40s a voice.

She said: "It bothers me that there are all of these great singers out there but no one is singing for my generation. It's an implicit ageism. I want to be the voice of my generation and these songs are for women my age who have been through it and who are proud to be who they are. They are songs of optimism and life experience."
