Victoria BeckhamVictoria Beckham has landed herself a small role on Gossip Girl, according to reports.

The former Spice Girl — who recently guest-judged on American Idol — was apparently persuaded to star on the hit CW show by its star Blake Lively, who is a big fan of Victoria’s outfits.

“Blake and costar Leighton Meester are fans of Victoria’s designs, and have both worn her dresses,” a source told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper.

“Blake attended the unveiling of Victoria’s new collection in New York last month, alongside the series’ stylist Eric Damen.

“The trio started chatting and Victoria revealed she was a huge fan of the show. From here, Blake pleaded with her to guest star in an episode and ran the idea past producers.

“Victoria isn’t an actress and wanted her role to be very tongue-in-cheek. And an idea for her to play Ed Westwick‘s long-lost mother was quickly vetoed. Victoria joked that she’d rather play his ex-love interest!”
