David Beckham gives tour of his and Victoria's humble first home

David Beckham opens the doors to his humble £150,000 first home with Victoria – revealing holes in the wall, a dodgy trainer collection and a life-size cut-out of HIMSELF – in incredible unearthed Sky Sports footage from 1997

  • Filmed in 1997, a baby-faced David, who would have been just 22 at the time, shows cameras around his and Posh Spice’s £150,000 house in Salford
  • A far cry from their current £56,000,000 property portfolio, the Beckhams’ first home was humble in size and even featured a knee-sized hole in the hallway wall
  • While the footage was captured in 1997, it wouldn’t be long before David and Victoria left their modest ways in the past, with the loved-up couple moving into their 12-acre estate – dubbed Beckingham Palace – in 1999
  •  They swooped up the sprawling Hertfordshire home for £2.5 million and sold it in 2013 for £12 million
  • The Beckhams – who have been married since 1999 – now split their time between their main family residence, a £31million Holland Park mansion, a £6million Cotswold farmhouse and a Miami apartment worth £19million

    In his early days at Manchester United at the time the footage was captured, David showed off his modest living room – complete with dark curtains, a white leather sofa, a cardboard cut-out of himself and trophies shoved onto a windowsill.

    Explaining the cut-out, David said: ‘My girlfriend’s mum wanted a big cardboard cut-out of me.’

    The camera then moved into David and Victoria’s small kitchen, where the superstar footballer giggled while showing off a packet of Walkers crisps stamped with Victoria’s face.

    David quipped: ‘It’s sometimes embarrassing when you go and get a big bag of Walkers crisps and it’s got your girlfriend on the front.’

    Modest: A far cry from their current £56,000,000 property portfolio, the Beckhams' first home was humble in size and even featured a knee-size hole in the hallway wall caused by a tumble David took

    He then opened up his fridge for cameras, revealing it was stocked with Toffee Crisp bars he had been sent alongside yogurts and strawberries.

    Heading upstairs, David was asked to explain a large dent in his hallway’s wall.

    He shared: ‘I was rushing [down the stairs] and I had my United blazer and everything on, I was going for an away trip, and I slipped on one of these stairs and my knee went flying into that.’

    Moving into the bedroom, David sat on his bed while Rob browsed through David’s clothes, hung on shelves and crammed into a corner of the room.

    Hi Posh! The camera then moved into David and Victoria's small kitchen, where the superstar footballer giggled while showing off a packet of Walkers crisps stamped with Victoria's face

    Rows of trainers were also shown lined up on the floor of David and Victoria’s small bedroom.

    Elsewhere in the interview, a giddy David was asked: ‘Did girls used to fancy you as a kid?’ and sweetly replied: ‘They used to think I was more cute.’

    Rob also queried: ‘What sort of mail do you get? Do you get people sending you knickers through the post?’ to which David answered: ‘Yeah. I’ve got a black bra. A big massive black bra that my dad was very excited about.’

    While the footage was captured in 1997, it wouldn’t be long before David and Victoria left their modest ways in the past once and for all, with the loved-up couple moving into their 12-acre estate – dubbed Beckingham Palace – in 1999.

    They swooped up the sprawling Hertfordshire home for £2.5 million and sold it in 2013 for £12 million.

    The Beckhams – who have been married since 1999 and share four children – now split their time between their main family residence, a £31million Holland Park mansion, a £6million Cotswold farmhouse and a Miami apartment worth £19million.

    Moving on up: While the footage was captured in 1997, it wouldn't be long before David and Victoria left their modest ways in the past once and for all, with the loved-up couple moving into their 12-acre estate - dubbed Beckingham Palace - in 1995
