Victoria Beckham only earned $8,268.38 (GBP4,863.75) last year (02) from her days as a SPICE GIRL.

The wife of soccer superstar DAVID - known for her love of designer shopping - collected the humble amount as her salary as one of the directors of SPICE GIRLS LIMITED, formed with ex-bandmates Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, and Emma Bunton.

At the height of the WANNABE bands' popularity in 1998, each member drew a salary of $10.54 million (GBP6.2 million).

However, accounts for the last financial year reveal that only $33,073.50 (GBP19,455) was shared between the four members left after Geri quit the band in 1998.

However, POSH needn't worry about her cash-flow problem just yet - she and David earn millions from lucrative sponsorship and advertising deals, and her record contract with TELSTAR is worth $2.55 million (GBP1.5 million).
