Piers Morgan has said that "shockingly" he ended up liking and admiring the Beckhams after watching their Netflix documentary.

Footy ace David and Posh Spice-turned-designer Victoria gave fans unprecedented access to their lives and careers in Beckham, which was unveiled earlier in October.

Morgan has now joined the millions who have watched it, and the outspoken presenter admitted he came out of it with a newfound admiration for the pair.

The former Good Morning Britain star also quipped that he might "owe" an apology for the 'David Beckham dartboard' the Mirror came up with when he was editor.

Morgan posted on X, which was formerly Twitter: "Just watched the whole Beckham doc series on @netflix and to my absolute astonishment, really enjoyed it.

"And even more shockingly, I ended up liking & admiring them both."

He then quipped: "Probably owe his mum an apology for the Mirror dartboard in ‘98 too…."

The dartboard was created after David's red card against Argentina during the 1998 World Cup, which saw him sent off during the game, which England went on to lose.

It had the footballer's face in the centre - the bullseye - and other celebs including Victoria around it.

"Still bitter?" it asked.

"Take your fury out on our David Beckham dartboard."

In the documentary, the pair addressed the 1998 match, with Victoria saying David was "depressed" after what happened.

Viewers have also been enjoying the series, saying it gives a great insight into the lives of the famous couple.

"It's a wonderful watch, have to say," one posted on X, as another said Victoria and David were a "super" pair.
