Victoria Beckham marched into Piers Morgan’s office and confronted the former Good Morning Britain star in an unearthed clip which aired on Channel 4’s Spice Girls: How Girl Power Changed Britain last night.
Posh took on Piers in scenes which aired on her very own film, Being Victoria Beckham, following the singer when she was tabloid catnip alongside David Beckham, easily the most talked about couple in the world at the time.
Piers was of course then editor of the Daily Mirror, long before becoming a celebrity himself.
During the second part of the Channel 4 docuseries, a clip showed Victoria marching into the newspaper’s office to ask why it was constantly splashing the star and her footballer husband across the front pages.
‘It used to be when in doubt lead on the royals, now when in doubt: Posh,’ Piers told her.
Not having it, she cackled: ‘Are you taking this p**s?’
Totally unfazed, Piers explained: ‘No, you’re the new queen of newspapers. Queen Posh and King Dave.’
He went on to ask if she’d be a columnist for his paper, as if they could afford her. Naturally she laughed in his face.
Almost two decades on from Victoria’s brash arrival at the Daily Mirror offices, Piers took the now fashion designer on again in 2020, this time slamming her and David for furloughing staff from their ‘loss making vanity fashion project’ despite being millionaires.
Make of that what you will.
How Girl Power Changed The World is an eye-opening reflection of how five ordinary girls achieved the extraordinary, coming together to take on world leaders, embarrass royalty and completely transform the landscape for women and girls from all arenas – from the school playground to the head offices of a national newspaper.
Spice Girls: How Girl Power Changed Britain is available to stream on All 4.
