David Beckham in talks with Netflix & BBC to make a COOKERY show


FOODIE David Beckham is whipping up a cookery show with his new production company.

Keen baker Becks has developed a format after joining best pal Gordon Ramsay’s Instagram Live cook-alongs.

He is in talks with the BBC and Netflix over the proposed interactive format, to be developed by his company Studio 99.

Former England skipper Becks, 45, is said to be cooking almost daily in lockdown with daughter Harper, eight.

A source said: “One of the unintended benefits of lockdown for David has been the opportunity to do what he loves most - baking.

“David’s also used this time to really focus on Studio 99, and initially chatted to Gordon about the pair doing an Instagram Live.

“He’s seen how well Gordon has done with his own cookery shows and his Studio Ramsay production company, and Gordon’s given him some great advice.

“Series like The Last Dance on Netflix - about basketball player Michael Jordan - have made networks including the BBC keen to talk to sportspeople.

“The appetite is there for someone like David.

“Plus he comes with a huge social media presence which, in this day and age, is basically free advertising.”

Last year Becks announced Studio 99 will produce documentaries, shows and other formats.

A slate of projects are in development, some with the star, covering sports, travel and fashion.
