The couple tapped their colour light as it lit up while their trainer Bobby Rich watched on in their home gym.

Earlier in the day, Victoria seemed in high spirts as she posed on the back of a boat in a lavish location.

The fashion designer showcased her slim physique in a white Reebok skirt and a matching sports bra. 

The mum-of-four reached up to the blue sky with her one arm and to the side with the other as she stood on her tip toes for the snap.

Victoria opted for a black baseball cap as she looked out to the blue sea of the back of the boat. 

She added a sun emoji in the top left side of the photo which she shared with her 30 million followers. 

The businesswoman penned: ‘Woohoo!!! It’s the weekend! (well sort of)’.

It comes after Victoria insisted that wanting to be thin is an ‘old-fashioned attitude,’ after spending much of her youth maintaining a famously slender physique.  

Talking body confidence, her new VB body range and fitness regimes with Grazia magazine, the fashion designer raised the notion that modern women want to ‘look healthy, and curvy’ – with the slimmer frame becoming a thing of the past. 

She said: ‘It’s an old-fashioned attitude, wanting to be really thin. I think women today want to look healthy, and curvy. 

‘They want to have some boobs – and a bum. The curvier you are, the better my VB Body dresses look.’

Victoria’s VB Body range – featuring tight knit jersey dresses and separates – was in fact designed with a curvaceous figure in mind.

‘Every woman wants a nice, round, curvy bottom, right? For that, you need a really tight knit that nips you in at the waist and holds you in all the right places,’ she explained. 

The mother-of-four, whose only daughter is ten-year-old Harper, finds the attitude and style of curvier women liberating – and inspiring for her children.

She said: ‘There are a lot of really curvy women in Miami, and they really own it, you know? They walk along Miami beach with not a lot of clothes on, and they look fantastic.

‘They show their bodies off with such confidence. I found both their attitude and their style really liberating. And as a mother, I loved the fact that Harper was around women who were really celebrating their curves and enjoying how they look.’

Victoria may be an internationally recognised style icon and fashion designer but she admitted her latest venture was also to help her feel ‘sexy again.’ 

‘For quite a few years, the more time I spent working in fashion, the more clothes I wore and I ended up buried under all these ‘fashion’ layers. 

‘Last year when I was in Miami and starting to go out again, post-Covid, I wanted a change. I wanted to feel sexy again,’ she recalled.
