Earlier this year, David Beckham dished the dirt on wife Victoria's regimented approach to food, revealing she'd eaten the same meal, every day, for 25 years.

And now, a top Spanish chef has spilled more secrets about Posh Spice and her strange eating habits after preparing her dinner at a wedding three years ago. 

Dani García, a highly regarded chef with three Michelin stars to his name, had been hired by Spanish professional footballer and former Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos to create a sumptuous meal for his nuptials to model and television personality, Pilar Rubio, in 2019.

Speaking on local television, García claimed that one of the guests at the lavish wedding - former Spice Girls star and fashion designer Victoria Beckham - had been incredibly difficult and refused to eat anything but vegetables, forcing him to redesign his carefully curated menu to cater to her demands. 

"It was very strange. Victoria Beckham changed the whole menu," he said on Spanish television.

"It was very sad when you make such an effort - not just me and my team, but the bride and groom and everyone else - to create a unique menu.

"Hers was totally different and just based around vegetables. And then there were some odd things that I've never seen in my life."

Elaborating, García claimed the mother-of-four specifically requested coconut water - which she drank "all the time" - alongside a bowl of mints. She also asked for hydro-alcoholic gel, which is essentially hand sanitiser, to be brought out during her dinner. 

"She had… a bowl of mints and then on the other side, hydro-alcoholic gel - which is very famous now but back then [it] wasn't because the COVID pandemic hadn't started," he explained.

"It was complicated giving Victoria her menu that night."

García's comments come mere months after Victoria's husband of 23 years, David Beckham, spoke candidly about her strict diet and eating habits on a podcast earlier this year.

Speaking to River Café's Table 4 podcast with Ruth Rogers, the football icon claimed his wife has eaten the same meal - grilled fish and steamed vegetables - every day for the last quarter-of-a-century.

He also admitted that "one of his favourite evenings" with Victoria throughout their relationship was when she deviated from her typical diet and indulged in something new - a very rare and "amazing" occurrence. 

"I get quite emotional about food and wine - when I'm eating something great I want everyone to try it," he said on the podcast.

"Unfortunately I'm married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years. Since I've met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables. She will very rarely deviate from that."

He continued: "The only time she's probably ever shared something that's been on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper and it was the most amazing thing. It was one of my favourite evenings. I can't remember what it was but I know she's not eaten it since."

Victoria Beckham has discussed her highly scrutinised diet in the past, claiming she is a "very fussy eater". Despite becoming a household name for her time in the iconic British girl group the Spice Girls, it turns out Posh Spice doesn't exactly have a taste for seasoning. 

Speaking on a previous episode of the River Café's Table 4 podcast, the mum-of-four prompted a public outcry after she revealed her favourite comfort food was "toast with salt on it".

"This is where I sound even more boring in the food department. Okay, what do I like? I like whole grain toast with salt on it," she admitted.

The star also said she likes her meals to be cooked without oils, butter or sauces.

Posh and Becks' high-profile romance began in early 1997, with the couple tying the knot in July 1999. They are parents to four children - Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.
