Victoria Beckham says she was bullied at school because she was ‘awkward’ and had hardly any friends

VICTORIA Beckham says she was bullied at school because she was "awkward" and had hardly any friends.

The Spice Girls singer, 46, revealed she was an outcast in school as she wasn't as confident as she is now.

However, Victoria says she made an effort to teach youngest child Harper, nine, to speak to the quieter people at school - because they are just like her mum.

The fashion mogul wrote in Vogue Australia: "When I was at school, I was quite an awkward teenager; I didn't have a huge amount of friends, and looking back I recognise that I was bullied at times.

"I would never want anyone else to feel how I was made to feel. So when Harper started school, I said to her: 'If you're ever in the playground and there's a little girl who is sitting on her own, ask her to play with you, go up and engage with her, because Mummy used to be that little girl.'

"I want everyone to know that no one is on their own when Harper is around."

Since her school days, Victoria has gone on to be Posh Spice, form a fashion empire and marry superstar David Beckham.

The couple paid an emotional tribute to each other on their 21st wedding anniversary earlier this year.

The pair thanked one another for their four children and happy lives, with Victoria adding: "I love you more each day".

She captioned her touching post: "Happy Anniversary @davidbeckham ❤️❤️❤️ I can’t believe it has been 21 years since we said 'I do'.

"Four children, four dogs, so much laughter and I love you more each day. xxxxxx".

Meanwhile, 45-year-old David reflected on the first time he laid eyes on Victoria as her Posh Spice alter ego in the Spice Girls.

Revealing he was with fellow footballer Gary Neville at the time, Becks wrote: "Well about 23 years ago I was sat in a room with Gary Neville and the Spice Girls were on the TV and I turned around to him and said 'ohhhh I like that one in the little black catsuit' 😄

"Who would have thought that all these years later we are celebrating 21 years of marriage and have 4 of the most beautiful and perfect kids..

"Thank you & Happy Anniversary I Love You ♥️ @victoriabeckham"

Together, David and Victoria are mum and dad to 21-year-old Brooklyn, 17-year-old Romeo, 15-year-old Cruz, and eight-year-old Harper.

Victoria and David Beckham posts a series of unseen home videos and pictures of Harper for her 9th birthday
