David and Victoria Beckham swapped planes at the last minute on Wednesday for “security reasons”, sparking speculation they wanted to avoid a run-in with a glamour model passenger they’d previously had a spat with.
The former Spice Girl and her soccer star husband were due to fly from London to Los Angeles on a Virgin Atlantic flight, on the same plane as busty model Katie Price.

They refused to board the plane and switched to an Air New Zealand jet, prompting reports they wanted to distance themselves from Price, who Victoria publicly fell out with in 2000.

But the couple’s spokesperson has dismissed the reports, claiming the pair swapped jets for “security” purposes rather than for personal issues.

Price took to her page to confirm she was flying separately from her former nemesis, writing, “Taking off. People saying Victoria on flight. This is not true.”

The Beckhams flew out of Heathrow airport several hours later, reportedly catching the same flight as Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole.
