Victoria launched her fashion brand in 2008. She came under fire earlier this year when she tried to request a government bailout to put 30 employees on leave – despite a fortune of tens of millions.

The former Spice Girl, whose family is valued at £ 335 million, had planned to use the government's Covid-19 program to pay 80 percent of the wages of some of her employees.

The fashion brand, which has 120 employees, sent letters to 30 employees warning them that they would be on vacation for two months as part of the government plan.

But Victoria then reversed the decision.

She told The Guardian: “We are not going to go back to the government vacation program now. At the beginning of the lockdown, the shareholders agreed with the management to take a small part of the employees off. At the time, we didn't know how long the lockdown could last or what impact it could have on business.

"The well-being of my team and our business means everything to me."

The company's application is believed to have cost taxpayers £ 150,000.

Denying that the U-turn was a result of public backlash, the company insisted instead that the board "now believes that with the support of our shareholders we can navigate this crisis without resorting to the vacation program."
