The designer played up to her nickname

Victoria Beckham has revealed she only really became ‘posh’ after she was dubbed Posh Spice.

Victoria, 38, has opened up about her time in the band for new documentary The Spice Girls‘ Story: Viva Forever! and admits she often played up to her upper-class persona.

‘I was called Posh becuase I liked nice restaurants, and nice clothes, and that was my character,’ she says.

‘I didn’t smile, even in those days. There was this very strong image.’

The mother-of-four thinks living up to her nickname has changed the way she sees herself.

‘Sometimes I catch myself in the mirror and I’m like, “Oh my God, I’ve turned into that person”.’

Watch The Spice Girls’ Story: Viva Forever! on ITV1 this Christmas Eve.
