David Beckham ‘working on a programme’ for BBC One

David Beckham is set to begin a TV career in the UK, as a presenter for BBC One.

The channel’s controller Charlotte Moore gave an interview to the Sunday Times in which she said that the former England football captain was working on a programme for them.

She didn’t give details of what the programme would be, but did reveal that it would not be about football, with the newspaper speculating that it could concentrate on fatherhood or modelling.

David retired from football last year and became the owner of a Major League Soccer franchise in Miami, with his other projects including modelling and charity work.

He will appear in BBC’s Sport Relief coverage later this month, alongside Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst in an Only Fools And Horses sketch.
