Posh spice didn't fit in at school and was bullied

VICTORIA Beckham was bullied at school and felt like she didn't fit in with the other kids.

The former Spice Girl claims she didn't fit in with the "cool" children at school because she was focused on pursuing a career on the stage and as a result was teased by her peers.

She told the Spanish edition of Vanity Fair magazine: "I dreamed with being on a stage. But it was a difficult part of my life. I suffered bullying. I did not fit anywhere... I was ambitious, I made a great effort, I respected teachers and rules. After school I went to dance lessons and singing and acting lessons.

"Meanwhile the rest of the kids hid for smoking and that kind of things. They pretended to be cool, but I was not like them."

Following her stint in the Spice Girls Victoria has successfully re-launched her career as a fashion designer and insists she has no intention of rejoining the group despite their brief reunion for a one-off performance at the London's 2012 Olympic Games.

She added: "I will not do that anymore. It was an honour for me being in the Olympic Games. I was so proud of being British. It was the perfect moment for saying: 'It was wonderful. Thank you very much, but I´m done.' Sometimes you have to know when leave the party."
