SHE is the world’s biggest Spice Girls fan – and now she’s a record breaker too.
Liz West, of Lindley, is currently exhibiting more than 2,000 pieces of memorabilia devoted to the girl group.
And the exhibition at Leeds City Museum has earned her a place in the record books.
The collection of memorabilia and merchandise was officially counted last weekend in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record.
The 2,066 items was comfortably higher than the previous best of approximately 1,000 making it officially the biggest number of Spice Girls items in a collection together anywhere in the world.
Liz said: “It’s all been very exciting, I applied to have Guinness come in and see if it’s the biggest collection.
“We spent a month counting everything and making check lists to make it easier for them as they went round, but it took them half a day to go through everything.
“The exhibition has been going really, really well, it’s beyond expectations.
“It is fantastic to break the record and I am pleased we did it at Leeds City Museum as part of the exhibition.
“Everything went really well and a special thank you to all the Leeds Metropolitan University students and volunteers who took time out of their weekend to help.”
With only items related to the group able to qualify for the count, it meant the items on display from the group’s solo careers were not able to be considered.
