Ex-SPICE GIRL Victoria Beckham is releasing a series of tracks under a secret name - because she fears her identity will put fans off buying her music.

The wife of soccer star DAVID fears her last attempt at a solo comeback was so disastrous, critics will attack her second attempt regardless of the quality of her music.

The singer is consequently hoping to prove cynics wrong, by revealing her true identity after she has landed a number one hit.

She explains, "I've recorded a number of tracks and I'm proud of them. This way, though, we can have a genuine hit and then, when it is a hit, I'll reveal my true identity."
