Victoria Beckham - as well as winning 'Brand' of the year last night - has also branded herself a 'pain in the bottom', particularly in the eyes of family.

The 40-year-old admitted to being a little bit annoying as she gave a self-deprecating acceptance speech during the British Fashion Awards last night.

The former Spice Girl won the coveted Best Brand trophy for her eponymous label at the stylish bash in London but took the time to thank her parents Jacqueline and Anthony Adams.

Speaking at the London Coliseum, Victoria quipped: "My parents, you love me unconditionally - and I know I am a pain in the bottom.'

The designer (c'mon, she deserves it at this point) also showed her appreciation for David as she thanked him and their four children - Brooklyn, 15, Romeo, 12, Cruz, nine, and three-year-old Harper - for their 'support'.

She said: "We've come a long way since that Spice Girls dressing room (um, what happened in that dressing room, exactly, hmmmmm, eh, eh?! *waggles eyebrows*). David, you inspire me every day. You support me. You make this possible. I adore you and my children."

The gushing star also praised her hard-working staff, saying: "I am so so proud to be British and incredibly proud to have built my brand in the UK. I want to thank my team. I love you all so much and this is for all of you."

She later posted a photo of herself on Twitter, enjoying a party in the toilets (always the best place to be if there isn't a kitchen in the vicinity) with several friends, complete with the caption: "Loved our after party!!! x (sic)" So did Kate Moss, by the looks of things.
