In 1994 Victoria Adams answered a call out in a magazine looking for a new girl band.
While her voice needed work, she had the ‘it factor’ – with management praising her grace and sophistication.
From there, the Spice Girls was born and Victoria shot to international fame as Posh Spice.
Renowned for her strict no smiling rule, Victoria has become misunderstood by the public.
In a romance made in 90s heaven, Victoria's high-profile marriage to football superstar, David Beckham defined the era.
With it though, came intense media scrutiny and hordes of paparazzi following their every move… as well as a string of cheating scandals.
We are journalists Sophie, Kate and Amy Taeuber and this is our new series unspoken - where we bring you the ‘unspoken’ stories behind the biggest pop culture headlines to rock the nineties and early noughties.
