Her nickname may be ‘Posh’, but viewers of the ITV’s This Morning, were left seriously unimpressed by Victoria Beckham’s ‘snobbish’ attitude during an interview with Alison Hammond on yesterday’s show.
Taking part in an interview with best friend Eva Longoria, Victoria made a comment that didn’t go down too well with fans and viewers.
Alison asked the pair what gifts they would love to receive this Christmas, to which they both replied: “art and wine”. The interviewer then went on to ask what they would spend their very last £10 note on if they had to choose something in particular.
Eva admitted that she would opt for avocados or wine, however, Victoria didn’t seem too impressed by her bestie’s answer.
“Wine for a tenner?? I don’t think you’d like it.” she told her. So it seems Becks will never be jumping at the chance to purchase a bottle of wine if it’s priced at a reasonable £9.99, as perhaps many of us would.
Victoria also went on to say that their close relationship is probably down to their shared love of wine. “We love to talk about wine. Maybe that’s why we get on so well.”
“We’re both alcoholic art-lovers,” Eva joked.
It’s no secret that the Beckham family are well-known wine lovers, meaning they’re bound to have extremely expensive taste when it comes to choosing their ideal beverage. In a recent Instagram post, Victoria shared a snap of three wine bottles which were said to come at a ridiculous price of £2000.
Apparently, the Victoria and David had bought the small selection for a chilled-out midweek evening, rather than a special occasion as one may expect.
During the interview, Alison also questioned Victoria on whether a Spice Girls reunion would ever be on the cards.
” It’s not happening” she confessed. “At some point you have got to know its time to say, ‘that was great…[but] Girl Power will always be there. What I do now is still Girl Power but it’s about empowering women through fashion. I won’t be stepping into a PVC cat suit any time soon.”
So it seems the answer is a ‘no’ for now, but let’s hope it’s not a ruled-out possibility for the future.
A source recently told The Sun that the girl group would be reuniting for a final time next year, however, these rumours have since been disregarded as just gossip. The source initially stated: “The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion.” This misinformed tipster further asserted, “Getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion.”
A representative of Victoria stated that such news was just plain rumours and ‘Posh Spice’ had no intention of returning to the pop scene at any point in the near future: “Victoria has a lot of love and respect for the Spice Girls and the fun they had, but her future focus is fashion and family only.”
The Sun later we went on to confirm the mistake after watching Victoria’s statement on This Morning; reporting that any prior statements should simply be regarded as false: “Victoria Beckham stated that she will not be coaxed into doing a Spice Girls reunion. The 43-year-old fashion designer and former pop star made her views on a reunion clear in an interview today, categorically saying: ‘It is not happening.’”
Yesterday, viewers of This Morning also watched the show descend into chaos as it suffered a live blip. The show stopped in its tracks as it was pulled off the air, due to a ‘technical difficulty’.
Holly and Phil were in the midst of chatting to guest Ben Fogle when the error occurred.
Although the glitch was expected to last just a few seconds, a blank screen replaced the show for around 12 minutes, until the issue had been resolved. Ben Fogle hilariously tweeted out to his followers: “What did I say?”
Whilst the issue was being worked on by experts, a blank screen popped up, accompanied by the message: “Greenwich Date Centre Switch” and later, “We’re sorry for the disruption”.
Viewers were left twiddling their thumbs, wondering whether the show would be back on their screens for the duration of the morning and the broadcaster couldn’t apologise enough for the unprecedented error.“We are sorry again for the disruption. We are were working hard to fix the issue and hope to return to This Morning as soon as we can.” he said.
At one point, Phil could be heard discussing the issue behind-the-scenes, about what they should do next: “No one can see us yet!” Phil could be heard muttering. “What do you want to talk about? No-one can see us, we’ll do Facebook live.”
Luckily, the show finally did return and Holy and Phil also apologised for the inconvenience. The pair had been having a few laughs during their time off air, updating concerned viewers via Snapchat to give a bit of an insight into the chaos backstage.
The co-presenters confessed that they had been unaware that the show had been suffering a technical issue and had carried on with the live segment – despite the fact that no-one had actually been watching – awkward.
ITV later issued a statement that the error was due to the loss of transmission from the BT Tower. “We would like to apologise to This Morning viewers after the programme went off air for 12 minutes today as a result of an issue at BT Tower, which affected the live feed to ITV. We are in contact with BT to establish the cause of this issue.”
However, when things go wrong on TV, it’s not unusual for viewers to come to their own conclusions as to why blunders happen. Many of those watching took to Twitter to discuss:
One viewer tweeted: @thismorning taking about the government criticising it and oh look the show drops off the screen #thismorning’
Another added: ‘I think the government are behind it’.
However, even the This Morning team joined in the fun, by joking about the error, tweeting to their followers: ‘What did you get up to while we were off air? Did you put the kettle on, start tidying up…or perhaps you did something more fun? Let us know…’
