In this episode Gearoid gets up early and heads to Chester to meet B*witched singer Edele Lynch.
In 1998 the Spice girls were busy dealing with over-exposure and the departure of Geri Halliwell. Their crown was deftly snatched away by an Irish foursome who jigged and twinkled their way to the top of the charts pumping out hit after hit. B*witched struck hard and fast and world domination followed. For Edele it was the beginning of a punishing schedule and unrelenting hard work. A few years later with the world at their feet and two double platinum albums under their belt the record company pulled the plug on the girl’s third record essentially ending their careers with a phonecall.
Over the years relationships between the girls became strained. Edele continued to work behind the scenes as a songwriter until ten years later an offer came to reunite B*witched. They patched up their differences and returned to the spotlight with new music.
Edele chats about her time in the band and how her life has changed since the reunion.
