The singer-turned-designer is now back in the UK after launching her successful fashion collection in Beverly Hills.

Beckham, formerly Posh Spice, told Allure magazine: "Living in America for six years was the happiest I think I've ever been. It was much more accepting for a woman to have a career, as well as a man. And I loved it."

The 39-year-old mother of four, who is about to open her first store in London, insisted: "I'm not saying I'm not happy now. I'm just as happy now."
