How I guffawed, when I read about Geri Halliwell, 38, this morning. I remember being considerably younger than her when the Spice Girls were around - to the tune of at least 3 or 4 years. Now, we practically share a birthday.

Any one else noticed this and who else is playing fast and loose with DOBs?

Yes! Beyonce has been annoying me too grin Supposedly a year younger than me, but looked considerably older than me when she first got famous and I was 17...

I was born in Sept 1972 - I'm 40, so if Ginger Spice was the born the month before she will be 40 too. Although I remember when I was at uni and the Spice Girls were born that she was older than me by 3 years or so??

Nancy I remember watching Sinitta on the TV as a kid, and she's now only a year or so older than me. Hmm....

Beyonce was in two girl groups in the early 90s (Girl Time and Something Fresh), way before Destiny's Child. I know she was young when she started out, but she wasn't that young. 'No No No' came out in 97. She was NOT 16.

Verdict: Beyonce is about 35.

YY to Ginger Spice.

Nicole Sherzinger must be 40, surely?

Geri Halliwell is 39. She's the same age as dp who is 40 next month. I think she was born August 1972.

yy to Kelly Brook
I am sure we were in the same year at neighbouring schools
now she is 2 years younger than me confused

Kylie talked about being 43 in a radio interview the other day and I thought 'well done' for being real, she was always 1 year younger then me.

Shame she didn't leave her face 'real'.

I am about to turn 45. This is clearly a lie as I can't possibly be over 30.

OhDoAdmitMrsDeVere Sat 02-Jun-12 08:06:25

I was going to say Florence. I have nothing against her but is she really 25?
She doesn't seem the type to lie for vanity reasons but perhaps to appeal to the yoof?

There are certainly celebs who were older tham me yet who now aren't. Cameron Diaz for one.

Kyle hasn't tampered with her age - she has always been the same as me (in age as well as looks. Ahem.)

SoupDragon Sat 02-Jun-12 07:59:44

Beyonce's dates seem to stack up though - born in 1981 she would have been 16 at the start of Destiny's child in 1997 which sounds about right.

CZJ, Jennifer aniston, Gwen stefani, J-Lo all born in 1969 so are turning 43 this year..like me!!

Not convinced about gaga being 26.

Amanda Holden has been 40 for years

LadyHarrietdeSpook Wed 11-Apr-12 18:20:14

I've wondered about Sarah Jessica Parker for a while. I am surprised to see she's only supposed to be five years older than me. If my parents hadn't moved I could have dug out all of my old Teen Magazines and settled this debate once and for all.

Unless...when they were younger they had to 'lie up' ?!

Florence Welch looks much older than 25

Nancy66 Mon 09-Apr-12 12:59:49

I remember watching Sinitta on TOTP when I was a kid - now, bizarrely, she's three years younger than me

Geri was a few years above me at school. If she'd stayed on, she'd have been Lower Sixth when I started. I turned 35 this school year so she would have turned 40.

MagsAloof Thu 29-Mar-12 11:18:26

I remember Beyonce was the same age as me (I am 34). I remember CLEARLY that when I was 20, she was 20. Now she's suddenly 30.

<She looks bloody good for 34, though>

ettiketti Tue 20-Mar-12 03:14:18

Caprice was 40 last year, looks way older though! Geri is 40 this year I think and that sounds about right....

Jason Statham....he's 44, from Derbyshire according to everything I've ever read. Age seems about right, I've not seen his bio rewritten although admittedly I perv over his photos more than I read about him

Grag Tue 20-Mar-12 01:35:40

Jason Statham's age has been tampered with. He's from just up the road from where I live (Derbyshire) but they've rewritten his bio so he was born 5 years later in London.

Christine Bleakely was in my friend's year at school (was head girl too) she is definitely 32/33 - though agree she looks older.

Meglet Fri 17-Feb-12 11:39:20

I do know that Posh, Robbie Williams and Kate Moss are all the same age as me (38 this year). So it will be amusing if I ever notice that they're tinkered with their ages.

Kate Moss might have had more fun than me but I have fewer wrinkles. hmm
