  • The Spice Girl-turned fashion designer has turned her hand to movie casting – and thinks David Beckham should replace Daniel Craig

    Victoria Beckham has new talent – casting her famous hubby in new movie roles.

    The Spice Girl-turned fashion designer has insisted that David Beckham replace Daniel Craig in a hilarious new interview on Chinese TV station, CCTV.

    The bold statement comes during the couple’s busy tour of China this week, which has seen them make a number of joint appearances to promote Brand Beckham.

    Talking about his plans following his retirement from football earlier this year, David said: ‘I have some friends who are actors, Tom Cruise is a very good friend of ours. But I don’t think I have any plans to become an actor. I’m not sure I’d be very good at it.’

    But Victoria Beckham quickly chipped in with: ‘I think you’d be great. I think he should be James Bond! He’d be a good James Bond!’

    We couldn’t agree more! Victoria has been exciting her fashion followers by sharing a number of stylish photos from her China diary, while David even witnessed a mini stampede as fans clambered to get a glimpse of him in Shanghai last week. Today, he’s caused a stir in Bejing, meeting fans at the city’s H&M store.

    So just how do they juggle overseas tours with four children?

    Victoria explained: ‘David and the children will always be my priority,. Everything that I do revolves around David and the children. As any working mom knows, it’s a huge juggling act. But absolutely, they inspire me every day, every single day, David and the children inspire me. I’m very lucky, I’m very blessed and I’m a very lucky lady.’
