Ulrika Jonsson blasts Victoria Beckham’s diet and says it makes her ‘want to weep’
Ulrika Jonsson was left unimpressed following Victoria Beckham recently revealing her favourite meal.
The singer turned fashion designer dished on her go-to cuisine whilst appearing on River Café’s Table 4 podcast and confessed that she’s a restaurant’s “worst nightmare.”
Mother of four Victoria told how she is “boring in the food department” and likes whole-grain toast with salt on it – even when dining out.
After the revelation, TV host Ulrika was left shocked by the former chart-toppers fondness for “simple meals” and claimed that hearing Victoria’s menu choices made her “want to weep.”
“I don’t wish to add to her woes but to hear the ex-Spice Girl talk in a podcast about how she is sure she’s every restaurant’s worst nightmare as she likes simple meals – salt on toast or steamed vegetables – made me want to weep into my fry-up,” Ulrika told The Sun.

She continued: “And to hear that someone in Victoria’s position, who can afford the best food, best produce and best chefs, limits herself to salt on toast feels like a tragic waste.
“The fact Mrs Beckham insists on wholegrain toast, I guess, shows she’s not entirely devoid of a bit of adventure,” Ulrika went on.
Victoria is not one to go all out at dinner time and steers clear of any butter, oils, or sauces as she simply doesn’t enjoy them – she revealed when speaking on Chef Ruth Rogers’ podcast.
“This is where I sound even more boring in the food department.
“I like whole grain toast with salt on it. It’s that carbohydrate that makes you feel comforted and I love salt,” she added.
“To most restaurants, I’m probably their worst nightmare. I love some steamed vegetables, some balsamic vinegar and then to season myself,” Victoria said.

“I like things to be cooked in a very simple way. I don’t like oils or butters or sauces.”
Victoria is known for being very strict with what she eats.
A source previously told Heat magazine that she only plans to lift the ban for a slice of cake on her 50th birthday.
“When she says she hasn’t been near a carb – by which she means a refined one – in ages, she’s not joking.
“It’s a practically banned word for her,” the insider said.
