  • To me, it’s just like a collection of women. That’s just how me and David see all this. I honestly couldn’t tell you all their names. David feels the same as me. People have said we should have sat in and sorted things out, but the bottom line is we’d nothing to sort out.

  • I was never particularly academic; never majorly intelligent. That’s my one regret – I wish I’d had a better education. I’d be really interested in something like psychology.
  • David’s a groupie – after the first day he took me out, he went and bought the CD to do some research.
  • And it was like, Bloody hell. As I walked in these four-inch heels and hot pants the lights went psychedelic and it took me a second or two to work out it wasn’t pyrotechnics, it was photographers. Oh great. That’s it, then. And my shorts are riding up my crotch but with the world’s press looking at you, you can hardly start pulling at them.
  • At this point, Clarissa Dickson-Wright turned to me and said something along the lines of so do you eat anything else except lettuce leaves? And everybody laughed. And I wanted to stick up for myself and yet still be respectful. What if I’d turned round and said to her so do you eat anything except chips and pizza? Imagine the public outcry. You’re allowed to take the piss out of being thin. You’re not allowed to say anything about people being fat.
  • So I’m really trying to have fun, but having fun (in Como) is like throwing a party in a crematorium, it’s hard work.

Well, I laughed.
  • The only thing to do, I decided, was to brazen it out. After all, we couldn’t stay in the house forever. So I slapped on my make-up and just thought, Do it. Just do it. Like a job. So we went out, hand-in-hand, me smiling like a bloody gibbon, and just as I got in the car I gave David’s bottom a squeeze. That’s what she said he did to her. No chance (the British press) would get the irony, but it did me good.
  • We were used to seeing out teenage fans dressed up as Sporty and Baby and Ginger and Scary (and even some as Posh, but not so many) but in America the mums dressed up as well. And let me tell you a fat fifty-year-old wearing bunches and a white miniskirt is not a pretty sight.
  • The original shoes that went with the outfit were black patent and came from a cheap shop in Carnaby Street and one of the heels kept falling off so I was always having to glue it back on. That dress, the one everyone said was a little Gucci dress, was never a little Gucci dress. The material and paying to have it made cost no more than 20 pounds.
  • In actual fact, I quite liked Barry Manilow and still do, not like Cliff Richard who I couldn’t stand even then. He should have stayed on that bloody bus and carried on with his summer holiday.
  • And I’ll never forget that last dress rehearsal. I was standing, at the back of course, and Betty Laine came up to me and said ‘You’re so fat I’m going to have to fly you in. I’m going to have to get you in on a crane because you’re such a roly-poly’. Message to the underdog: I am the most successful person who has ever come out of Laine’s. It doesn’t matter what you look like, it’s all about hard work, determination and self-belief.
  • Poor Louise had had a really long labour and in the end they’d had to pull the baby out with forceps, so she had this strange, cone-shaped head. And everyone’s saying, ‘Isn’t she beautiful?’ and I’m thinking, No, she isn’t.

  • I was always being told I was the useless one, the one Spice Girl who had less talent than a coconut.
  • I’ve just got a real dry sense of humour and I take the piss a lot. I think people might find me funny because I’m different to what they’re expecting. People expect me to be a bit up my own arse. A lot of famous people are like that – they’ve really got their heads rammed up their own arses.
  • People are saying she can’t really sing, she can’t do that … I’ve been on tour for a year singing live. What do I have to prove? If people don’t think I can sing, fine, Piss off and don’t buy my record.
  • My family really inspires me. I was in the US when I wrote the album, working with some amazing songwriters. A lot is through my own experience – a lot of them are love songs. Mind of Its Own is out in Valentine’s week.
  • If it all ended tomorrow, I’d like to write songs for someone else. I’d like to still be involved in music or production of some sort.
  • David and I watch the reality show Fear Factor in bed. Isn’t that funny? I’m sure people assume that we’re watching porn.

  • This person the press make me out to be irritates the hell out of me as well.

  • It won’t be long before I go arse over tit, on that shiny floor.
  • Make them pay your legal fee’s MacDonalds!
  • It’s not about competition. You should see me with a football – there’s no competition at all” – maintaining that she and David are not rivals.
  • My Spanish is improving and I can now ask: ‘Donde Gucci?’ (‘Where is Gucci?’). I also can say: ‘Tienes un Bentley?’ (‘Do you have a Bentley?’)”.
  • David’s got more personality than people think and he’s very deep and spiritual. He always knows how to dress, that was part of his appeal originally. We’ve got matching dogs, matching watches, similar wardrobes, matchings Jags. I know it’s tacky, but it makes me laugh.
  • It’s a wonder England ever did away with public executions or throwing old cabbages and turnips at people in stocks. There’s clearly a market for it.
  • I’m never gonna please everybody, so i just have to please myself.
  • David doesn’t ever have any hair, cos he has a sack, back and crack.
  • I may not have made the best judgement with the employees I have hired, but David wasn’t a bad choice.
  • I have hair extensions. I wear makeup. I watch what I eat. Nothing’s natural with me. I work at it to make the best of myself. And I think that’s all you can do.

  • I want to be bigger than persil automatic. (about the fame)
