BECKHAM documentary viewers have been poking fun at Victoria for ‘trying to relate to the working class’ after the Netflix series was released today.

The series sees David, 48, and Victoria, 49, give an intimate insight into their marriage and early romance, their family life, as well as charting David’s footballing career.

And fans have noted one particular moment when Victoria says she is from a ‘working class’ family before David points out that her father used to drive her to school in a Rolls-Royce.

In a segment talking about growing up Victoria says: ‘We both come from families that work very hard we’re very working class’.

Hearing the interview from another room David then pokes his head round the corner and chips in: ‘Be honest!’ before an agitated Victoria replies: ‘I am being honest!’

David then asked her: ‘What car did your dad drive you to school in?’

She then started to answer saying: ‘So my dad did…’ before her interrupted her saying: ‘It just needs one answer!’ 

Posh then retorted that it ‘wasn’t a simple answer’ before he asked her again what car it was.

She then said: ‘It depends but yes in the 80s my dad had a Rolls Royce!’ – before David retorts ‘thank you’ and then leaves. 

Viewers were quick to react to the moment as one joked: ‘Victoria Beckham is the queen of dry humour!’

Another said: ‘Love him humbling her. Like her name was posh spice.’

A third wrote: ‘I love the fact that he called her out!’ while someone else said: lmao he loves to humble her. They are the sweetest couple.’

Fans have been loving being given a glimpse at the pair’s relationship, with one viewer on Twitter even saying it has ‘made them believe in love again’.

The couple have been married for 24 years since first meeting in 1997 and now share four children Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 21, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 12.

Elsewhere many who watched admitted they were left reeling at reliving the abuse he famously received for getting a red card in the World Cup in 1998 against Argentina.

David and Victoria opened up on their much-publicised romance on camera, including the harder parts of their marriage and ‘rumoured infidelity scandals’. 

But those who have been watching the show praised how they overcame their problems to create a ‘beautiful, sweet’ family.

One said: ‘I am watching the Victoria and David Beckham documentary and I all of a sudden now believe in love.’

Another penned: ‘The story of ‘The Beckhams’ is why I’m watching #Beckham. 

‘We all saw what was possibly the worst part of their story, but I love how they not only moved past it but became this beautiful, really sweet, family who just love each other.’ 

A third wrote: ‘Have you seen the Beckham doc? Kinda nice seeing the good times again, at least in episode 1.’

A different impressed viewer gave some more general feedback, saying: ‘Victoria Beckham comes across really well in this documentary. Learned a lot from her when she’s interviewed.’

However others picked up on how ‘awful’ the abuse David received was after his infamous red card moment.

The Three Lions icon lashed out at Argentina’s Diego Simeone, who by his own admission went down softly in the 47th minute, and forced England to play with 10 men for the remainder of the last-16 clash after being given his marching orders.

Upon arriving back in England, David was met with extreme backlash from fans and media, who vilified and abused the star during the subsequent season.

The documentary reveals how he was spat at in the streets, booed consistently at Manchester United matches and even sent death threats.

Many reacted to reliving the time in history as one penned: ‘Beckham series has been brilliant! I cried. Absolutely loved it. The pain was real for that red card incident, no man or woman should ever get abuse like that, especially in sports. God love him.’

Another said: ‘Amazing how people forget that England had the chance to go through on penalties after Becks got sent off against Argentina & they f***ed it up without him. The way he was treated afterwards was awful. #Beckham.’

A third penned: ‘nah the abuse Beckham got from the whole of England was insane.’

Someone else wrote: ‘People think Harry Maguire gets bullied need to watch beckham new documentary then u see what bullying is how beckham got treated affer world cup was disgusting how he was treated good job he had united fans behind him.’

Overall the positive reaction was streaming in from fans as football lovers gave it rave reviews.

One said: ‘The first four minutes of the Beckham series features everything in football I love, totally forgot that goal was against Wimbledon back then.’

Another wrote: ‘Beckham series is great viewing so far’, while someone else penned: ‘Beckham, what a strong person. Best sport docu I have seen.’

A fourth said: ‘That Beckham documentary on Netflix reminded me why I loved watching Manchester United growing up as a kid.’ 

While a fifth said: ‘David Beckham documentary on Netflix is must watch is u r true football fan..1 of the best documentary on athlete. #BECKHAM #netflix.’

Another simply said: ‘Beckham on netflix is brilliantly done.’

In addition the BECKHAM documentary has gone down a treat with critics who have praised the four-part series as ‘riveting’, ‘candid’ and the best sports documentary in years.

Several publications have given the show a positive assessment including The Telegraph who described it as a ‘heartbreaking portrayal of an unexpectedly complex man’.

They had particular praise for the scenes of David and legendary Manchester United Boss Alex Ferguson.

They wrote: ‘In particular, the scenes in which Beckham and Alex Ferguson are intercut, talking about how Ferguson turned on, and cast out, the boy who he’d raised like a son, are simply heartbreaking.’

The Guardian also praised the documentary, saying David comes across as a man who ‘likes to be in control in all aspects of his life’.

They added: ‘It turns out to be a surprisingly candid look at the life and career of one of the most famous footballers of all time, and it certainly is a rollicking ride.’

Another positive review came from The Independent who praised director Fisher Stevens for his work on the project and for assembling ‘an impressive cast of interviewees’. 

They also highlighted David’s wife Victoria’s appearance in the show, writing: ‘We hear that he used to drive for hours just to see Victoria for ‘seven minutes’ at the height of her Spice Girls fame. 

‘The couple sound like they were totally obsessed by one another from the start, and still come across as very content today. But they only let us in so far.’

The i newspaper gave a more mixed review, saying Victoria was the ‘real star’ of the show but criticised it for not delving deep enough into David’s idiosyncrasies.

They wrote: ‘Beckham also fails to explore its subject’s psyche in any meaningful way. 

‘Multiple scenes hint that Beckham’s need for tidiness and order (his wardrobe is meticulously arranged, and he cleans his kitchen incessantly) might be a symptom of something more serious than a preference for cleanliness, but the show never actually goes there.’

The Sydney Morning Herald gave the doc a glowing review, praising it as the best sports documentary since The Last Dance, a 2020 miniseries about Michael Jordan.

They wrote that director Stevens ‘does a solid job unspooling the disparate threads that made Beckham such a fascinating figure: a people pleaser with an ‘I do what I want’ rebellious streak, who struggled to assert his own individuality against the tough-and-controlling father figures (his football-mad dad Ted, and Sir Alex) whose love he so desperately sought.’ 

The Times gave a more mixed review, praising the documentary as ‘entertaining’ but also noting it feels like a brand boosting opportunity for the couple.

They wrote: ‘You might have expected Netflix’s four-hour documentary about David Beckham to be a doting hagiography that would offer a few tasty morsels but would mostly polish the shiny tiara of Brand Beckham. And you would be right. That’s precisely what it does.’

BECKHAM is available to stream on Netflix now.
