BBC News mistakenly identifies Aussie DJ Mel Greig as ‘Geri Haliwell. Spice Girl’

10 Dec

The two Aussie DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, who made the prank phone call that is alleged to have led to the apparent suicide of royal nurse Jacintha Saldhana this morning gave interviews to Australian TV over their distress and regret over the whole affair.

Given the interest in the UK it was no surprise that the news item was the lead headline on BBC’s Ten O’Clock News, what was a bit of a surprise was the BBC mistakenly labeling the VT when focused on Mel Grieg as “Geri Haliwell. Spice Girl”.

At least it wasn’t Geri Halliwell

Double Ooops!
