Victoria Beckham has landed a presenting job on one of the most high profile US chat shows.

The former Spice Girl, who was panned for her recent stint on American Idol, is giving TV another go with a guest presenting slot on top daytime show The View next month.

She will join actresses Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd, and broadcaster Barbara Walters as a guest co-host on the ABC show, a live programme similar to Loose Women.

Posh appeared on The View as a guest in September last year, when the hosts complimented her on her shoes, her clothing line and her footballer husband David.

A spokesman for Victoria said the fashion designer was excited about returning to the show as a host.

“She had a lot of fun last time she was on the show, it’s a real ‘girlie’ environment, the hosts are all strong, intelligent women who she respects and admires, and she is looking forward to returning to the show in a few weeks,” the spokesman said.

Her appearance, scheduled for February 17, comes after a guest judging spot alongside Simon Cowell on American Idol, which critics and bloggers largely derided.

One critic said: “Her main contribution was to anyone playing a drinking game based on the number of times she could use the adjective ‘nice’.
