Londoners - do you know how to use the Underground yet?
Well never fear, help is at hand. Geri Halliwell, of Spice Girls fame has taken her first tube journey in nearly two decades. She's helpfully sent a series of tweets describing her experience and giving her top tips on how to use the Tube
Halliwell posted a photograph of her emerging on to the street at Piccadilly Circus after a journey that took one minute, reports The Guardian.
"Loved it!!i'm a Londoner! I'm liberated!!" she tweeted, following up with a series of top commuting tips.
She wrote: "Tube tip – doors stops at platform entrance, or below sign, more seats at end carriage. oh & it's not smelly just saying."
Twitter users were equally amused and bemused by the singer's messages.
@MissAnnebelleL asked: "Is Geri Halliwell going to explain how we top up our oysters next?"
@IncrediblyRich wrote: "Geri Halliwell spent a few minutes underground and is now tweeting ridiculously obvious tips as though we don't all ride the tube EVERY DAY."
