WATCH: David Beckham reveals he still has a memento from the day he first met Victoria

  • by IMAGE

David Beckham still has the train ticket that Victoria wrote her phone number on when they first met.

It turns out that David Beckham is a diehard romantic. Speaking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he recalled how he was a young player at Manchester United when he first met his future wife.

He described how she had come to watch a game with her fellow band member Mel C in 1997.

Beckham said: "We knew of them, obviously, because they were pretty big at the time. And I was just establishing myself in the Manchester United team at the time. But we all had our favourite Spice Girl."


Asked by Fallon if Victoria was his favourite, Beckham replied: "She was obviously my favourite, might be a bit awkward if she wasn't."

Victoria then travelled to Manchester again the following week and the rest, as they say, is history.
