Former SPICE GIRL Geri Halliwell has turned into a "fat slag" - for a movie based on the long-running cartoon characters.

The two ladies, TRACEY and SANDRA, are characters in British adult comic VIZ who spend their lives gorging on fatty chips, wearing flesh-revealing clothes and attempting to seduce uninterested men.

The aspiring actress, who is famous for her ultra thin body, is expected to play one of their friends and hopes the role will fast forward her acting career.

A source tells British tabloid The Sun, "She has been offered a large part in the movie. She is keen to join because she wants to develop her acting career. Geri hopes to sign on the dotted line in the next few weeks.

"I don't think she'll be having to put on any weight for the role though. Geri will not be playing a fat slag, but will be on of the other birds they end up hanging around with, called PAIGE."

The two main roles are expected to go to Four Weddings And A Funeral actress SOPHIE THOMSON, sister of Emma, and British TV comedy star FIONA ALLEN.

The movie is being produced by the team responsible for MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING.
