After the tragic death of Amy Winehouse (RIP), her planned concerts in Italy had to be sadly cancelled although at first the Italians thought she was only "dead drunk"; nobody believes the Daily S++r in Italy!
The organisers were forced into finding a suitable replacement and the act had to be English because in Italy there are enough crap pop-singers.
The concert organisers, showing solidarity with tragic Amy, decided to contact those other "half dead" English pop sensations, The Spice Girls and they immediately agreed to replace Amy.
There was a slight logistic problem with Posh Spice after the birth of her baby daughter, Harper, but not being able to resist the chance of attempting to sing once more in public and earn a couple of million more, brave Posh pushed Harper into David's arms and rushed off to Italy with the other girls.
The Italian public were not quite so excited about the replacements and after two numbers pelted the "Spices" with rotten Italian tomatoes; after all who wants to see middle-aged ex-superstars dressed in mini-skirts and Union Jack T-shirts on a piazza in Italy?
They would have much preferred to see a drunken Amy for five minutes!
