Victoria Beckham hit out at critics, who claimed her marriage to David “wouldn't last”, as they celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary.

The pair marked the major marriage milestone on Monday, exactly 23 years after they tied the knot in a glitzy showbiz wedding, at a castle in Ireland, back in 1999 – but Victoria couldn't resist a dig at those who doubted the couple’s staying power.

In a post on Instagram, the “Spice Girls” star shared a picture of the couple laughing together and wrote: “They say he isn't funny, they say I never smile, they said it wouldn't last! Today we celebrate 23 years being married. David you are my everything, I love you so much!!!!”

She also shared a post from David, which included a sweet throwback of the couple with the words: “23 years today.”

David shared an extra snap, which showed the couple in the matching purple outfits which they wore at their wedding, and joked: “I mean come on ... Purple and so serious.”

The former footballer continued the jokes by adding a clip of the couple being interviewed by Ali G, for a comic relief sketch back in 2001.
