In the comfort of their home on Netflix’s new docuseries Beckham, David Beckham playfully takes a jab at his wife Victoria's description of her upbringing.

The scene has quickly become a standout moment of the series - which also revealed Beckham's relationship with his father was not always good - as viewers across the globe watch the former football star challenge Victoria’s ‘working-class’ claim with a cheeky yet pointed question about her childhood.

"Be honest," David prompts, leaning casually around the doorframe, triggering a back-and-forth that has caught the attention of social media enthusiasts and documentary viewers alike. Despite Victoria's initial reluctance, the former Spice Girl is nudged into revealing she was ferried to school in a Rolls-Royce from the eighties, no less.

David’s retort, "Thank you," ends the amusing interrogation.

Social media buzzes with reactions

This domestic banter has set social media alight, with fans and critics alike chiming in on the vast difference between the claim of a working-class background and the reality of a childhood graced with such a fancy mode of transport. "David Beckham is the last remaining investigative journalist," quips one user, while another adds, "Should've been a barrister. Modern-day George Carman!"

The clip's viral spread showcases the audience’s delight in the Beckhams' playful rapport. It's not just the humor that's caught the public's attention, but the sincere peek it offers into the couple's relationship, one where even a global icon can't resist a gentle tease at his partner's expense.

The documentary doesn't shy away from the tougher aspects of David and Victoria's life, including their 24-year marriage and the infamous allegations surrounding David’s affair with his former personal assistant. Nevertheless, it's their unfiltered exchanges that have endeared the couple even more to their audience.

Victoria's claim, "We're very, very working class," contrasts sharply with her moniker as 'Posh Spice', and the internet hasn’t missed a beat in pointing out the irony.
