I know he isn't popular on MN but I'm going against the grain and thinking I actually quite like him on the been.

I'm watching him too. I like him. I think he's lovely and down to earth.

Where is he at the moment , missed the start

Luckystar1 Tue 29-Dec-15 21:43:19

I really, really, really, really fancy him. Just his face and body, not his mind (or voice)

buddhasbelly Tue 29-Dec-15 21:45:52

That was meant to say beeb! sparkling get off your hands and voice your opinion please!

lucky he has aged well hasn't he?

Yes I will hang my head in shame if decreed by MN!

buddhasbelly Tue 29-Dec-15 21:46:46

ken he's been to Papua new guinea, Nepal and now djibouti

I like him but not sure why he keeps dragging his friends round with him on these trips. They don't add anything to the programme at all.

Luckystar1 Tue 29-Dec-15 21:48:59

I remember the day he shaved his head (and the Sun was putting artists impressions on its front page) and he turns into an Adonis in my eyes.

I have literally zero interest in his personal life or his charitable stuff, I just love looking at his face. He even looks amazing in the baking heat. I'd be an actual puddle.

He seems a very lovely kind man , chatting , getting involved .
What's not to like ?

Turned over. Boring.

buddhasbelly Tue 29-Dec-15 21:53:41

I have no interest in football but have enjoyed seeing how it is something that is linked the world over.

Why isn't he popular? I like him - he's not perfect, but he's a better role model than many sports stars.

As an offshoot if anyone likes the theme of this (and also likes cricket!) please read When Penguins Stopped Play. Incredibly entertaining read

His voice always comes as a surprise to me. I can't retain the information that he sounds the way he does - he should be deep and rugged, not high pitched and Essex.

Iflyaway Tue 29-Dec-15 22:41:03

It was great. Really enjoyed it and thought he was lovely and normal and very down to earth.

He's gone up in my estimation.

Davros Tue 29-Dec-15 23:10:39

I love him! And one if the things I love is that he hasn't tried to sound different, he's himself

LassWiTheDelicateAir Wed 30-Dec-15 03:16:24

He was lovely. I really enjoyed that.

He is desperate to become Lord Beckham. His voice and use of was instead of were should not be on the BBC. I don't want to fund his pr, let him go to itv3 with Joey Essex.

Missed the programme last night but have to say he strikes me as a really nice guy just can't bear the awful tatts fsad

Rafflesway Wed 30-Dec-15 11:58:33

And can think of far worse people to be knighted/damed.

Howtorebuild - you sound charming! Yes - kick all the oiks off the telly!

I pay a license fee for the BBC, They normally have high quality independent TV. Normally self promoters buy pr go to ITV. I am sick of brand Beckham, they are trying to get the oldest be a celebrity for no reason other than who his parents are. Their management think the public will buy anything they are fed by that lot.

I love Beckham! What's not to like? The only problem people seem to have is that he has a regional accent? Don't we all?
