Geri rocked an all-white ensemble

In an emotional episode of her YouTube series Rainbow Woman, she explained how her confidence plunged in her thirties after "she gave [her] life "100% to music". She added: "And then when I got to my thirties, I found it so difficult because the teenage bravado had run out and I wasn't sure where I belonged."

The heart-warming post comes after Geri recently announced she is set to receive an honorary doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University. Taking to her Instagram on Wednesday, the 49-year-old shared a joyous picture with her 1.2 million followers to celebrate her remarkable achievement. Geri beamed for the cameras as she posed alongside Professor Sir Chris Husbands.
