Victoria Beckham hit the West End last night to watch her friend Beverley Knight star in The Bodyguard.

The fashion designer and mum-of-four left David and the children at home to enjoy a night out at the theatre, and catch up with her old pal.

Beverly Knight plays the lead, Rachel Marron - the part made famous by Whitney Houston in the 1992 film of the same name - in the musical version. Speaking to The Metro, Beverley said: It has been quite scary, I’ve tried to do my own Rachel. With my own version, she’s a selfish mare but by the end of it she actually softens

Afterwards, Victoria popped back stage to congratulate her old friend Beverley Knight on her performance. The fashion designer looked her usual stylish self in a smart trilby and oversized winter coat, and was all smiles as she had her photograph taken with Ms Knight.

Beverley took to Instagram to share their reunion with both their sets of fans, captioning the photo: 'Also visiting @TheBodyguardUK was a lovely lady I haven't seen in ages! @victoriabeckham thanks luv! Xxxx'

Meanwhile, Victoria has reportedly been busy organising a tropical holiday to the Caribbean with her family and their close friends, Gordon and Tana Ramsay.

With four children to organise, we can imagine Victoria's got her work cut out. Little wonder then, that she took to own Twitter to write: 'Last week before Christmas. Don't lose your head! #VBXMAS x vb' with a link to... a picture of a polar bear's head and one of her new handbags.
