Ulrika Jonsson has taken a swipe at Victoria Beckham, saying her super-strict diet sounds like a ‘miserable existence’.
The opinionated TV presenter, 54, didn’t mince words after learning Sergio Ramos’ wedding was reportedly ‘thrown into turmoil’ with Victoria’s ‘complicated’ dinner demands of coconut water and mints.
Victoria’s husband David also previously revealed that his wife has eaten the same dish for 25 years – grilled fish and steamed vegetables.

Writing in The Sun, Ulrika said: ‘I seriously wonder what enjoyment Victoria gets out of life. I mean, the girl’s idea of ’comfort food’ is wholemeal toast with salt on it.
‘Even her hubby David says she’s eaten the same thing for the past 30 years, which sounds sad and must make for a miserable existence.’
While acknowledging that Victoria looks great, Ulrika added: ‘Are you supposed to restrict and deny yourself meals in order that you can remain stick-thin and look eternally youthful?’
The former Celebrity Big Brother star added that she loves to eat and could never imagine cutting out certain foods to remain trim.

It comes after Victoria came under fire from a famous Spanish chef for causing him grief at a celebrity wedding with her ‘complicated’ dinner demands.
Three Michelin star chef Dani Garcia, 46, claimed the Spice Girl had ‘changed the whole menu’ when former Real Madrid star Ramos tied the knot with his model and TV presenter wife Pilar Rubio in Spain in 2019.
Dani recalled how Victoria had coconut water by her ‘all the time’ as well as bowls of mints, as he branded the habits ‘odd’ in a new interview.
Touching on what it was like to cook for the fashion designer at the June 2019 wedding banquet near Seville, Dani said on Spanish TV on Monday night: ‘It was very strange. Victoria Beckham changed the whole menu.

It was very sad because when you make such an effort, not just me and my team but the bride and groom and everyone else to create a unique menu.
Hers was totally different and just based around vegetables. And then there were some odd things that I’ve never seen in my life.
‘She had coconut water, all the time, a bowl of mints and then on the other side hydroalcoholic gel which is very famous now but back then it wasn’t because the Covid pandemic hadn’t started.
‘It was complicated giving Victoria her menu that night.’

Disputing Dani’s version of events, a source close to Victoria said: ‘This makes a great story but isn’t fair or accurate – the most Victoria would have done when asked about dietary requirements is to ask for some plain fish and vegetables.’
Victoria’s husband David previously told how she has eaten a meal of steamed fish and vegetables for the last 25 years and will ‘rarely deviate’ from this menu.
Discussing Victoria’s very specific eating habits on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast, David explained: ‘I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to try it.
‘Unfortunately, I’m married to someone who has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years. Since I met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that.’

The only time she probably ever shared something that was on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper and it was the most amazing thing.
It was one of my favorite evenings. I can’t remember what it was but I know she hasn’t eaten it since.’
Victoria’s ‘odd’ eating habits have been the subject of intense scrutiny for years.
During Euro 2004 she reportedly stuck to a diet of strawberries washed down with mineral water.
The mother-of-four has previously revealed that she won’t eat food cooked in oil, butter or sauces and doesn’t eat red meat or dairy.
Last year she said her comfort food was whole grain toast with salt on it and admitted: ‘To most restaurants I’m probably their worst nightmare.’
