Geri Halliwell and Christian Horner touched down in Cannes a few days ago for their honeymoon

"Don't rush me I'm thinking," Geri captioned the amusing snap. The singer and her Formula One boss husband looked to be multi-tasking – concentrating on the game as well as soaking up the French Riviera sunshine outdoors.

It looks like all that concentration paid off, as Geri proudly showed off her win in another photo. "I can't believe I won! (First time)," she wrote alongside the image of Christian's fallen chess piece.

Check mate ! 😀

The new Mrs Horner managed to beat her husband for the first time

The lovebirds touched down in Cannes a few days ago and have been photographed taking in the sights. Looking every inch a local, Geri was pictured wearing a summery floral-patterned dress and tan wedges, and strolling around the picturesque old town with her husband.

The new Mrs Horner also shared a photo of herself on Instagram about to go for a dip in the pool. Despite writing "Breathe in Mrs H" and admitting that she had just tucked in to spaghetti bolognese, Geri posed in her bikini and showed off her washboard abs.

Just had the spag bog ! ✌️

Geri, 42, looked to be in complete marital bliss

The 42-year-old beauty looks to be floating on cloud nine, starting married life with Christian, 41.

The couple exchanged vows in front of family and friends including Amanda Holden, Myleene Klass and comediennes Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders last week at St Mary's Church.

Geri's former bandmate Emma Bunton also attended along with her fiancé Jade Jones and their two sons Beau and Tate, who acted as page boys. Geri's own nine-year-old daughter Bluebell was given the honour of walking her famous mum down the aisle.

"It's been an amazing day filled with so much love, joy and laughter," said Geri Halliwell after the wedding

"We are thrilled," Geri told HELLO! magazine after the ceremony. "It's been an amazing day filled with so much love, joy and laughter – and the sun shone through."
