Victoria and David Beckham are about to reveal what their world is really like behind closed doors as it’s been revealed they’re in talks to make a documentary about Becks’ career.

And now a source close to the pair has told new the couple may use it as an opportunity to change the public perception of them after a run of bad publicity – including David’s six-month driving ban last year for using his phone behind the wheel and Victoria’s plan to use the furlough scheme at her fashion brand, which she later decided against.

“This opportunity is a bit of a make or break because they’ve both had a bit of bad press,” our insider said. “They’re both keen to get their image back up. It’s probably one of the most important projects they’ll ever have.”

Last week it was reported David, 45, is in talks with Netflix and Amazon over the film rights, with a source claiming, “It’s going to be about David’s life post-football, especially the creation of his new team in Miami, but will have some personal content too.”

But while he’s said to be producing the project with his TV firm Studio 99, our insider says it’s Victoria, 46, who could be calling the shots.

“I think Victoria will want control,” our mole said. “She’ll want to make sure she’s painted in the best light – and her family too.

“This is Brand Beckham and they’re probably keen to make themselves seem more likeable because the press hasn’t gone their way.”

A second insider agrees that Posh will want to oversee the finished version. “As a businesswoman, Victoria is a bit of a control freak and a few heads will roll if she doesn’t have the final say,” the source told new.


“David wants it to be an organic, raw portrayal, while Victoria will want a picture-perfect image of family life, so they’ll have to meet in the middle. They’re hoping it will drive the Beckham dynasty into billionaires’ row.”

The couple often share snippets of their family life on social media, but our insider says that taking things up a notch with the documentary could improve their public image and signal the end of a stressful few months.

“They know whatever they put on Instagram will go everywhere,” said our mole. “They’re really concentrating on getting back to the top.”

Victoria and David, who are parents to Brooklyn, 21, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and Harper, nine, previously filmed fly-on-the-wall documentary The Real Beckhams in 2003, but our source says they’re hoping this time will be different.

“There was the other documentary, which didn’t get the best reviews, but they want to show Victoria’s got a sense of humour and that she’s a great mum. They will want this film to show they have this amazing life while being humble with it and you’d get to see their nice sides,” our source said.

“They’ve got to be real and likeable and this is what David does best, but Victoria isn’t as natural in front of the camera.

“They’ve achieved amazing things, but the response hasn’t been great about how they’ve handled things. They want to show everyone and remind people what they’re all about. It is a risk, but it’s one they have to take.”
