‘We’ve talked to David Beckham and he said that he would do it, so that was very exciting,’ Perry says.

‘We have asked (ice hockey icon) Wayne Gretzky; I’d love to have him on the show at some point.

‘My favourite athlete of all time is (tennis ace) Jimmy Connors, so, I guess my hope is that we get Jimmy Connors to come back and work with me again, which would be a dream come true.’

The more of we see of Becks the better we reckon.
