Spice Girls Video 'Too Sexy'

by | 03 November 2007

BBC1 bosses were blushing last night after being forced to cut some of the raunchier scenes from the Spice Girls' new video.

Chief among the sections ending up on the cutting room floor was a segment featuring Victoria Beckham in some quasi-bondage gear.

The video for Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) was premiered on UK television last night before EastEnders at 19:55 GMT.

Viewers wishing to catch Posh Spice in what the Daily Mirror described as a satin "cage" basque, thigh-high leather boots and Agent Provocateur black lingerie will have to wait for a post-watershed version of the video to air.

The BBC's cuts to the video, in which all of the Spice Girls gradually lose layers of clothing, come after the band agreed to do a lingerie shoot for Victoria's Secret.

"Beeb bosses knew there would be a lot of children watching at that time so they thought it was safer not to show some of the sexier bits," a source told the tabloid.

All profits from Headlines – the girls' first new release in seven years – are going towards the BBC's Children in Need charity appeal, which begins on November 16th.

The single is available for download from Monday onwards.
