Victoria Beckham gets the lookalike treatment in latest Schweppes spoof

She joins the likes of Ulrika Jonsson, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Jeffrey Archer who have appeared in the "Sch... you know who" print ads, created for Schweppes by Mother.

In the latest execution, Victoria Beckham is shown getting out of her car, with the word "Essex" tattooed across her back. It parodies the "Brooklyn" tattoo that her husband David Beckham sports in honour of the couple's son, who was named after the New York borough in which he was conceived.

Victoria is expecting the couple's second child in September.

Photographer Alison Jackson, who gives the campaign its distinctive paparazzi look, said: "The Beckhams are a unique couple who provide a steady stream of inspiration in my work.

"As with all of the images in the campaign, this was one picture that was waiting to happen."
