Fans are gearing up for the most anticipated date on the 2016 calendar – the Spice Girls’ 20th anniversary on July 8. But has Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, just destroyed the Girl Power legacy?

At the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition in London on May 5, Victoria, 42, dropped a bombshell that no Spice Girl diehard should have to hear – that Posh Spice was silenced!

In fact, producers used to often turn her microphone off when the pop band were performing!


‘They used to turn it off and just let the others sing,’ she revealed. ‘I got the last laugh – and now my mic is well and truly on, finally,’ Victoria joked, referring to her hugely successful fashion empire and her family’s fortune.

And it seems the black-clad Spice Girl was destined for fashion superstardom… unlike her bandmates. ‘I was always the one that loved fashion and it was quite a result for me because the girls always used to get their clothes for free because they were crap and so there was a lot of budget for me to have my little Gucci dress.’ Ouch!

Perhaps the greatest girl band of all time, fans of their 1997 film Spice World: The Movie won’t be surprised by her next admission.

‘When all the other girls were being fun and spontaneous and jumping on tables, I was always the one checking the table wasn’t going to collapse. I was always the sensible one,’ she explained, hinting that it was her bandmates, not her, who were the life of the party!

‘Luckily, because I used to wear heels, I just used to jig about a bit and I got away with it, but it never came easily. I was always much more reserved than the other girls.’
