With Sport Relief just around the corner, we don’t have much longer to wait before we get to see David Beckham’s cameo in Only Fools and Horses, and it seems the man himself is just as excited as we are about his starring role.
The retired footballer revealed that even superstars can get a case of the nerves, saying: “The day of filming started off with a slightly sleepless night, going over my script. The thought of being on set with Nicholas and David was obviously very nerve-racking. I woke up that morning with my script on my chest.”
“I’ve never done anything like this before, especially with two people I’m really in awe of and have been for many years.
“It wasn’t just about learning the script, it was about delivering it; saying the right things at the right time.”
“I’m a huge fan of the show. I have been for many years, as far back as I can remember. Being from the East End of London, it’s what I was brought up on.”
David later said that he can now “die a happy man” having been involved in the sit-com.
