"Victoria’s visited a surgeon in LA..."

Whether she’s debuting her latest fashion collection in Paris, or bonding with her brood on a family day out, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is constantly under the scrutiny of waiting paparazzi.

And now it seems that the 43-year-old is set to take drastic measures to ensure that she looks camera-ready, whatever her age.

A source close to the star has spoken exclusively to Woman magazine’s About Town and revealed that the mum-of-four wants to GAIN weight in a bid to hold back the years.

Our insider tells us: “Victoria’s visited a surgeon in LA and was told the best way to help slow down ageing is ‘fat – eat more and drink water’.”

And it seems like Victoria is already beginning to follow the doctor’s orders, as our insider continues that she wants to gain at least 7lb in a bid to stop the tell-tale signs of ageing in her face, chin and knees – something husband David is said to be over the moon about.

“David has tried tirelessly to get Victoria to relax her strict eating habits, so he is delighted at her change of heart,” our insider added.

Speaking to Vogue Nederland earlier this year the designer opened up about the hard work it takes to maintain her super svelte frame: “I go for a three mile run every morning and I work out for an hour with a personal trainer, which gives me just enough time to get to the kitchen to puree Romeo’s avocados.”

While we have no idea if she has eased up on her fitness regime, or swapped a carefully planned diet to load up on carbs, we can’t help but pour over her latest Insta snaps for clues to her reportedly changing figure.

Is it just our imagination or does the above pic of reveal a slightly fuller silhouette? We’ll leave it for you to decide….
