Goodbye girls

With millions at stake, it must have been one hell of a bust-up that split the Spice Girls. But that's female friendships for you, says Lucy O'Brien

Girl Power goes out of fashion in Spiceworld

Geri's departure has failed to move the Spice Girls' fickle young fans.

Letter: Gazza: the moral

Sir: Three events in recent days have filled me with joy. First you reported that Damien Hirst was old hat; then that one of the Spice Girls had quit; and finally that Gazza has been dropped from England's World Cup team.

It was never stunning, it was sometimes not much cop at all, but overall it was much better than it might have been. In the Manchester Nynex Arena on Tuesday, there were metal staircases and three big video screens and a number of costume changes worthy of Diana Ross.
