Here's what we know...

2019 has undoubtedly been a huge year for Victoria Beckham, and from her LFW shows to her skincare line, she has made non-stop viral news.

Basically - she's career goals to the max.

Sometimes however you have to take a step back in order to go forwards, something that was proven this week as the 45-year-old fashion designer closed her YouTube channel, less than a year after its launch.

The channel, designed to show ‘the real’ Victoria, only managed to secure a little over 100,000 followers, earning the designer just £25 a day - and yes, while that’s a goldmine for most of us, if you’re VB, it’s just not worth it.

‘The YouTube channel has been impossible to monetise, and it was very time-consuming so the decision was that it would be pulled,’ a source told the Mail on Sunday. ‘While Victoria enjoyed the filming and had lots of fun doing it, there were production costs that were not being covered by its income.’

The source continued: ‘The decision was made to concentrate everyone’s time and efforts on something that is going to benefit her business.’

Victoria’s decision to become a YouTuber came just after her friend, Derek Blasberg, was appointed as YouTube’s fashion and beauty director.

‘When Derek approached me, I thought it would be a great opportunity to educate myself and really understand the platform,’ she told Vogue after her show in February. ‘The videos are going to be everything from fashion to beauty, and my family will be in there as well.

‘I think you’ll get the opportunity to see the real me: me at work, me with the kids and what it’s like being a working mum.’

We’re sad to see the channel go but we’re excited to see what comes next!
