Victoria Beckham’s near-skeletal frame is causing serious concern, a doctor tells Now.

A protruding ribcage, sunken eyes and gaunt face – in recent weeks fans of Victoria Beckham have become deeply concerned that she is is worryingly thin.

‘Victoria looks skeletal. She’s disappearing,’ Dr Sarah Jarvis, GP and clinical consultant for medical website Patient.info, tells Now. ‘If anyone diets extremely, it can affect your heart and you become at risk of osteoporosis. I think it would be very difficult to be that thin when you’re not naturally that size and be getting all the vitamins, nutrients and minerals that you need. Nobody in the UK needs to be skeletal.’

Victoria insists she has a good diet, saying in 2014: ‘You know, I eat very healthily. I eat lots of fish, lots of vegetables, and a lot of fruit. I work out every day, six or seven days.’

Twitter went into overdrive when the snaps of her frightening bony frame came to light. ‘She looks like a skeleton,’ one user tweeted. Another commented: ‘Why are you so sickly thin?’

‘VICTORIA NEVER WAS COMFORTABLE IN THE SPICE GIRLS’
