Victoria’s life isn’t exactly a rags to riches story, as she was born into a comfortable middle class family in Hertfordshire. Indeed it was something of an irony that she would one day revel in the “Posh Spice” label, considering she was embarrassed by her family’s wealth as a child. She admits she begged her father Tony, who ran an electrical wholesale business, not to drop her off at school in his Rolls Royce.

Although she always did well in exams, Victoria realised an academic career was not for her after seeing the film Fame. Her parents encouraged her showbiz aspirations by sending her to the Jason Theatre School, and at 18 she moved on to Laine Arts Theatre College. But it was an ad in a magazine called The Stage that would change her life forever. After responding to an appeal for five girls who could sing and dance, Victoria became one of The Spice Girls and embarked upon a journey which would make each of them a household name.
