The much-hyped Victoria Beckham TV show was beaten in the ratings by a repeat of BBC crime drama Waking The Dead.

Only 3.5 million tuned in to ITV1’s one-hour special following Posh Spice’s move to Los Angeles.

The show itself, was a complete work of fiction from the company owned by Simon Cowell. It even carried a disclaimer at the beginning of the show stating that “some scenes” were faked, and that the role of Victoria’s assistant was played by an actor.
