Men didn't want to know me when I was a Spice Girl, reveals Victoria

She is married to one of the world's most sought after men -- but Victoria Beckham once struggled to even find a boyfriend.

Posh has said nobody wanted to date her when she was a member of the Spice Girls.

The 38-year-old fashion designer made the confession during a new documentary which sees her joined by bandmates Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, and Melanie Brown to talk about their early days in the group. Victoria, who is now happily married to soccer star David Beckham, said she was left behind when it came to romance.

"There was a stage where someone wrote once how every woman wanted to be one of us and every man wanted to date one of us -- not that anyone wanted to date me."







Kisses

While she may have struggled early on, Victoria was soon snapped up and she began dating then Man United star Beckham in 1997 three years after the band formed.

By 1998 David and Victoria were engaged and on July 4, 1999 the couple tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin.

While they had their fun times, it was not all hugs and kisses for the fiery five piece.

Mother-of-one Mel C tells how hot-headed Geri Halliwell and Mel B were constantly at each other's throats, while she herself almost got kicked out of the band.

Dubbed Sporty Spice, Mel C describes how members of the band had often left and come back before Geri made the decision that she was leaving the band for good.

"I think a few of them had left, well, Melanie and Geri left a few times," she explained. "I nearly got kicked out once as well, but that's another story."

And Melanie touched upon troubled relationships within the group, particularly between Geri and Mel B.

"She was having some personal issues and it's no secret that her and Melanie had a very fiery relationship. They are the closest of all of the band.

"You know, they're absolutely in each other's pockets or they can fight like cat and dog."
