Beckham puts brakes on Viva Forever casting show?Date: 2 March 2012
The Daily Mail is reporting that Victoria Beckham - aka Posh Spice - has refused to get involved with a proposed TV casting show to find the stars of new musical Viva Forever.
According the paper, plans are afoot to launch a “nationwide search”, in the style of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s TV casting shows, to find the 'wannabe' stars of the Spice Girls musical, which is being produced by Mamma Mia!’s Judy Craymer.
The plan was for the five original band members to act as the judges, but Beckham apparently has concerns that signing up to the show will jeapordise her fashion career, so has put the brakes on.
A source told the Mail: “Mel B is desperate for this show to happen. All the other girls would consider it, but Victoria has made her feelings very clear. Other than attending the world premiere of the musical, she wants to focus on her fashion career.”
Viva Forever, which has a book by comedy legend Jennifer Saunders, is expected to hit the West End later this year.
