During the podcast, tthe former Spice Girl has explained how she prefers simple meals of whole wheat toast with salt or steamed vegetables with balsamic vinegar.

Mercury naturally builds up in fish, crustaceans and animals that eat fish. Too much exposure to mercury can damage the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs and immune system.

A source told The Sun: ‘Victoria had too low a mercury level. So doctors gave her a liver wash to rid the body of toxins.

“She feels brilliant and is as slim and fit as ever.”
