Victoria BeckhamVictoria Beckham reportedly annoyed staff at the London hospital treating her father-in-law Ted Beckham after refusing an offered cup of coffee then using a private staff room to check her make-up.

A source at the London Chest Hospital told the News of the World: “She was offered a cup of coffee by one of the staff. But she wanted to know what kind of water had it been made with - bottled or tap. Obviously it was tap water and she said, ‘No, thank you’.”

“The staff were bemused. Water is boiled anyway, so people didn’t understand what the problem was.”

“On another occasion Victoria wanted to redo her make-up. She asked one of the cleaners if there was somewhere she could go. In the end she used a staff room in the high dependency unit.”

“[Later when] she and David came back for a second visit, she’d changed outfits.”

“When David came out he was chatting to staff and doing autographs. But Victoria just walked off and he had to go running after her.”

Ted underwent emergency surgery at the hospital following a heart attack last month.
