Victoria Beckham is to star as Bikini Bottom's Queen in a special celebrity episode of Spongebob Squarepants.

The wife of footie legend David Beckham plays the part of mermaid Queen Amphitrite in the 30-minute special, called The Clash of Triton.

Posh said she was thrilled to be asked to take part in the show as her three sons love watching it.

"When I told the boys that I was going to be on the show, they were so excited," she said.

"I had such a great time recording the voice of Queen Amphitrite. How fun to be a Queen for a day!

"We are all looking forward to watching it together."

The episode is due to be shown in America on 5 July, but a release date for the UK hasn't been announced yet.
