Victoria shared her favourite dessert to her Instagram stories

During her latest appearance on River Café's Table 4 podcast, David Beckham's wife Victoria confessed her favourite snack – and it's not what you'd expect.

While most people prefer to indulge in sweet treats, Victoria craves salt when she's feeling peckish. "I like wholegrain toast with salt on it. It’s that carby thing, isn't it? It's that carbohydrate that makes you feel comforted and I love salt.

Victoria's favourite muffins are vegan and gluten-free

 

"I'm a savoury person as opposed to a sweet person", said the mother-of-four, who also admitted: "I'm a very fussy eater and I like things to be cooked in a very simple way. I don't like oils or butter or sauces."
