POSH, BECKS AND THOSE RUMOURS
The showbiz world was rocked on Friday when Twitter ignited with rumours that the ultimate celebrity power couple, David and Victoria Beckham, were splitting up after 18 years of marriage.
Here in the office we were glued to the trending topic, which saw thousands of people weighing in on what looked to be the biggest showbiz story of the decade.
The Beckhams were even rumoured to be unveiling their ‘uncoupling’ in the highly modern form of an interview and photoshoot with a high-fashion, glossy magazine.
But, when we rang the glossy in question to check the validity of the rumours, they sharply slammed the phone down on us. Erm… rude!
Hysteria reached fever pitch when bookmakers, Paddy Power, suspended odds on whether Posh and Becks would be divorcing by the end of the year.
However, a spokesperson for the couple quashed the rumours, calling the reports ‘ridiculous’ and ‘a crock of s***’.
‘There is no statement due, no divorce, and a lot of Chinese whispers and fake social media news,’ said Victoria’s spokesperson.
‘This is all very bizarre and an embarrassing waste of time.’
Phew! We were all scared for a minute there. Long may Posh and Becks reign!
