Geri Horner has declared Kim Kardashian would be called "Smart Spice" if she was ever a member of the Spice Girls.

The 43-year-old reality TV star is a long time fan of the girl group and even dressed up as Posh Spice Victoria Beckham for a high school talent show - and now Ginger Spice Geri has given Kim the honour of a personalised nickname.

Speaking to E! News, Geri said: "She deserves something really good. She deserves something like Inner Strength Spice. I think she's Smart Spice. She's smart. It's brilliant that you're beautiful from the outside, but also she's beautiful with a book in her back pocket. I love that. We can be all things. Good for her!"

Geri added of Kim: "She's amazing. I think she's a very, very good role model. She's smart. She's really been inspiring the way she's turned that business around and also for women to celebrate your curves. I really like that about her."

Kim previously revealed band member Melanie C had given her a copy of her book 'Who I am' and written a message jokingly offering Kim a slot in the band.

In an episode of her reality show 'The Kardashians', Kim said: "Sporty Spice wrote a book and signed it inside and she sent it to me saying that they're going on tour and they need a Posh and would I be the Posh? I mean, I'm sure she was joking. But like, when I was in high school, would I ever have thought that this was, like, a thing? I'm just, like, a girl from high school that loved the Spice Girls and now they're asking me?"
