Posh gave me sleep drugs.

VICTORIA Beckham takes the controversial drug Ambien to help her sleep on long flights, according to X Factor host Dermot O'Leary.

He said Posh Spice, 36 (below), even gave the sedatives to him. "I was settling down to sleep on a transatlantic flight when Victoria sat on the end of my bed," said Dermot, 37.

"She asked if I had a sleeping pill then gave me Ambien and said I'd be out for the flight. I was. She also said if she took one she probably wouldn't recall our chat. I reminded her at the other end and she said, 'Did we talk about that?' She had total memory loss, as she said."

A spokesperson for Posh said: "Victoria has a quirky humour and this is a case of 'lost in translation'. She takes an occasional herbal melatonin - available in stores - to regulate jet lag on long flights."

Ambien, sold as Zolpidem in the UK, is used to treat insomnia - but many cases of adverse reaction are on record.
