The Spice Girl and footballer's wife wants to "set the record straight"...

Victoria Beckham‘s autobiography is to hit the shelves next year – with POSH SPICE claiming: “I thought it was about time to set the record straight”.

The Spice Girl has been working on the book for several months, and has already signed on the dotted line with UK publishers Penguin. An overjoyed spokesperson for Penguin confirmed that the publishing house would be releasing the “extraordinary story of one of the biggest celebrities in the world today”.

The book is expected to shed light on the superstar’s notoriously public – but often tantalisingly private – media profile, after this month’s publication of controversial biographer Andrew Morton‘s ‘Posh & Becks’, published today (October 12) in the UK. There has been a blaze of publicity over the contribution of Beckham’s former employees and an allegation that Victoria and husband David had fabricated reports of an attempted snatch involving son Brooklyn in order to get soccer star David off a driving charge.

According to reports, portions of the book will take diary form, based on Posh Spice‘s own personal journal over the past few years, alongside an array of family photographs.

As well as the Morton book, expected to be a best-seller, Victoria‘s story will sit on bookshelves alongside her husband?s recently-published ‘My World’, OK! Magazine‘s hardback collection of wedding pictures, an unofficial, fictional book – also in diary form – entitled ‘Brooklyn Beckham – The Secret Diary’, and numerous others.
