David Beckham

Champion footballer, sporting icon, British heart-throb, power couple husband and father… just a few of the ways to describe the celebrity phenomenon that is David Beckham. First stepping into the limelight as a soccer star for his childhood heroes Manchester United, Becks was thrust into the A-list when he started dating a Spice Girl by the name of Victoria Adams. A tabloid heaven wedding and four kids later, Posh & Becks are still going strong and have built a business empire around their family image. As well as playing for Man U, David has also won Spain’s La Liga title in 2007 during a four-year spell at club Real Madrid, enjoyed a few loan spells at celebrated Italian team AC Milan, before jetting off to the States to play for his current club LA Galaxy. He is also England’s third highest capped player ever with a total of 115 appearance for his country – despite a rocky start with that infamous red card against Argentina at the 1998 World Cup in France. Aside from the football, David has kick-started hairstyle trends worldwide, made it cool for football stars to be covered in tattoos, befriended the Hollywood A-list (including Tom Cruise and Will Smith), become an underwear model for Armani and now H&M, and has amassed a whopping £135million fortune.
