They are now the newest and hottest of groups. But The Spice Girls have

come a long way - in fact they couldn't sing and couldn't dance when Ian

Lee first met them. Caitlin James hears the real story...


The legend of the Spice Girls has them all meeting up at auditions, all

desperate for a break and out of work, with two of them commuting from

the North down to London. Stories of how they decided to team up, live

together and form an all-girl-power group abound. The generally repeated

story of their beginnings says that for two years the five girls were

writing songs and laying down the foundations for the Spice Girls, and

after managing themselves, they met their current manager and the

bidding war began.The rest is history. Well, not quite.


Ian Lee, 50, is the main person who helped the Spice Girls realize their

immense ambitions and bring them to their present success. He runs the

charity-funded Trinity Studios in Woking, Surrey, where he helped groom

the band - which was originally called Touch Ian spent time with the

girls every day for a year, sat at a piano with them and helped them to

train their voices. But according to Ian Lee, the girls never clapped

eyes on each other until June 7, 1994. He says: "I couldn't believe it

from 400 others and Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell weren't even

considered for the original line-up. The whole idea of a girl band to

rival boy groups such as Take That and East 17 was dreamed up by Chris

Herbert who, together with his father Bob, owned a management company -

which was originally called Heart and later, Safe. The Herberts have

since been contracted by the girls' new advisers, 19 Management, and

they are legally bound not to speak of their involvement with the Spice

Girls. What actually happened was that Herbert, 26, went to dance

schools and drama colleges in London and the South-East with a rather

cheap black and white flyer, asking for girls who could both sing and

dance, and who were streetwise, ambitious and dedicated.


job, but had begged with Chris Herbert on the telephone to give her a

try. When she walked in, everybody could see she was a bit older than

the rest of the girls so Chris asked her how old she was. Her reply was

a classic Geri. She said, "I'm as old or young as you want me to be. I

can be a 10-year old with big tits if you want." She got the job.


On June 7, the girls came to the studio to work together. Chris had put

them all up in a local B&B, and for a week they got to sing and dance

together. After a week they were told they had a couple of weeks to

think things over, and decide if it was something they really wanted to

do. They all agreed and Chris moved them into a house in Maidenhead and

asked Ian to allow them to use his studios on a daily basis at a cost of

F100 a week. The girls were given expenses, but no regular wage. In a
