Victoria Beckham only thinks people are ‘true fans’ if they need medical attention when they meet her.

The Spice Girls star – who reunited with the rest of the girl group for the start of their ‘Return of the Spice Girls’ tour in Vancouver, Canada, yesterday (02.12.07) – believes people who burst into tears or pass out and need an ambulance prove they are her truly dedicated admirers.

Victoria, 33, said: ‘When I went to Japan recently there were lots of lovely little Japanese people there to greet me. There were tears, which I always like. I think that shows you are a true fan, when you cry – or when you pass out.

‘When the paramedics are called, it’s always a good sign. That shows real determination as a fan.’

Victoria – who has three children, Brooklyn, eight, Romeo, five, and two-year-old Cruz with David Beckham – banned her soccer star husband from coming to see her perform with The Spice Girls, because she was so nervous.

David said last week: ‘One minute Victoria is saying she wants me there and then it’s, ‘No, don’t come to the first show, as we’ll all be too nervous.’

‘But I think I’ll be at the show a couple of days later in San Jose and have the boys with me. And I know Victoria will ring me as soon as the first show ends. She says the rehearsals have gone amazingly well.’
