Geri Horner tramples a line of cars in a HUGE muddy military tank in latest YouTube video

Geri Horner’s latest episode of Rainbow Woman is seen letting off steam by taking a monstrous military tank for a drive.

Episode 4 – aptly titled Grrr… Power – premiered on Sunday, as a follow up to last week’s emotional vignette in which Geri opened up about regaining her confidence to tour again with the Spice Girls.

Geri, 48, is seen in the latest instalment of the YouTube series stumbling through a typical day at home where nothing is going right before deciding to get out and pilot the tank.

Scream if you wanna go faster! Geri Horner’s latest episode of Rainbow Woman is seen letting off steam by taking a monstrous military tank for a drive

‘Sometimes there’s something inside of us that goes “grrr”… and I need to let it out,’ she says, ahead of boarding the 60-tonne military tank over a parked car in a scrap yard.

‘You just want to explore that anger. It’s healthy. I bet so many women, girls and all sorts of people feel like that – underestimated. And sometimes we want to table thump about it!’

Dressed in one of her crisp cream ensembles, Geri clearly isn’t afraid of the muddy surrounds as she climbs into the tank and pilots it across a string of old cars.

The Spice Girl tramples the vehicles in a satisfying session behind the wheel.

She is then greeted by her son Monty, who can’t quite believe what his mum has gotten up to.

‘Strength is the new pretty!’ she explains. ‘I’m a fluffy bunny with a gun in my pocket!’

The episode also features another new track – this time the Motown-flavoured Girl Power anthem Phenomenal Woman.

Geri revealed that she worked with some of the Peaky Blinders team to shoot her new series.

Talking on Wednesday’s episode of The One Show, the Spice Girls star also shared that screenwriting legend Richard Curtis even gave her script notes.

Geri says: 'You just want to explore that anger. It's healthy. I bet so many women, girls and all sorts of people feel like that – underestimated. And sometimes we want to table thump about it!'

For the first episode, Geri was worlds away from her usual looks as she donned an illustrious red gown and wig to transform into Queen Elizabeth I.   

Talking about the scenes, she divulged: ‘The wonderful thing about this was, do you like Peaky Blinders? I’m a massive fan. The DP of that, I worked with him to shoot that. So it’s beautifully shot.

‘Then I wrote it, I’ve always loved acting a little bit, so to put that in it’s almost like a creative playground. Then Richard Curtis, I wrote it and said: ‘Could you have a little look?’ He gave me script notes!’

Talking about her series, Geri said: ‘The whole thing was like an unexpected venture. I like lots of things, I like music, I like storytelling, I’m curious.’

Speaking about her idea behind portraying Queen Elizabeth I, she said: ‘Queen Elizabeth was a rainbow woman, she was adventurous, she was brave, she put duty first. 

‘There was a painting I discovered called the rainbow, her portrait, showing her there, showing how she had to be stoic and strong through tough time.’

Geri said that her new YouTube series is a ‘love letter’ to the fans and shows everything that she adores in her life.

Earlier this month, the star looked unrecognisable as she transformed into Queen Elizabeth I in the first look at her new YouTube series Rainbow Woman.

She added: 'Then I wrote it, I've always loved acting a little bit, so to put that in it's almost like a creative playground. Then Richard Curtis, I wrote it and said: "Could you have a little look?" He gave me script notes!'

The Spice Girls hitmaker was worlds away from her usual looks as she donned an illustrious red gown and wig to play the fierce monarch in the first episode of her children’s series.

Geri also offered a glimpse of Rainbow Woman through a teaser video she shared with fans, revealing episodes will be released on her YouTube every Sunday.  

The first episode of Rainbow Woman, titled Queen Speaks, sees Geri honour Queen Elizabeth by visiting Ashridge House in full costume, where she resided as a Princess until she was arrested by her sister Mary in 1558.

Queen Elizabeth I ruled over England throughout the Tudor period, succeeding her sister Mary I on the throne from 1558 to 1603.

Known for her signature red hair and refusal to find a husband, she became known as ‘The Virgin Queen’ for ruling the country without a man at her side. 

It was reported in The Sun in September, that Geri is focusing on a new children’s series which will celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

She is expected to release a range of children’s fiction books following the success of her first novel, Ugenia Lavender, which sold 250,000 ­copies over five months after it was released in 2008.

It is likely that her intriguing video project is linked to her upcoming books as they are promoted under the Rainbow Woman banner.  

They also claimed that the mother-of-two plans to focus all of her efforts on her new project instead of relaunching a solo singing career.
