Piers Morgan has made a bold claim that Victoria Beckham was flirting with him in throwback footage, sparking plenty of reaction from fans.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter has never been short of confidence but even for his standards, making such a bold claim is outdoing himself.
Posh Spice, at the time the footage was filmed in 2000, was one of the biggest celebs in showbusiness.
She had also married the football icon David Beckham the year before, who is famously swooned over by everyone.
But Piers, albeit rather tongue in cheek, reckons this footage, taken for the the Victoria’s Secret Channel 4 documentary in 2000, shows Posh may have actually had eyes for a certain baby-faced news editor instead.
The video shows an assured Piers, wearing a shirt and tie, showing Victoria around the Daily Mirror newsroom, where he was an editor between 1995-2004.
Victoria, wearing a black shirt, looks rather flirtatious leaning in towards Piers and laying a hand on him.
Piers captioned the video which he posted on his Instagram account: “God, this takes me back…Posh & Piers in the Mirror newsroom, from the new Spice Girls doc on Channel 4. Fairly sure she’s flirting with me…”
Most of his followers don’t disagree with him. The comment section is filled with messages calling it a “flirt fest” and saying things such as “she is actually flirting” and “I thought the same Piers!”
“She WAS flirting with you” and “she’s definitely into you” said others.

One even said: “David should of been worried!” A comment I’m sure Piers would have loved to have seen.
Some were quick to try and knock him down a peg or two, saying: “She’s dead nervous. That’s not flirting” and “in your dreams!”
Others were distracted by something else: “Sorry can we just discuss the size of the computers.”
