Daphne Guinness has taken to Twitter to deny calling Posh the unpleasant name, quoting her as saying:

"[Beckham is] an ugly pig! Downbeat, miserable and awful. Of course she's going to make money - she's backed by Simon Fuller. I don't have anyone! She annoys the shit out of me."

The quote made the rounds on the internet, but Daphne has turned to Twitter to protest her innocence, writing a number of tweets, including: 'I am so sad stitched up by the sunday times [sic]. I thought c. long was a friend. I would never call anyone an ugly cow, not my words.'
