David Beckham left FURIOUS over fake statue in James Corden prank


David Beckham is left FURIOUS as James Corden unveils fake statue featuring a massive chin, three teeth, and a huge bottom in hilarious prank

David Beckham was left fuming when James Corden unveiled a fake statue of the footballer ahead of his official LA Galaxy honour earlier this month.

In a clip released on Monday’s The Late Late Show, the former footballer, 43, was less than impressed as he branded the sculpture ’embarrassing’ and ordered the filming crew to ‘stop the cameras’.

Comedian James, 40, couldn’t contain his laughter as he watched the sportsman’s fury from the sidelines, before revealing the prank to a relieved David.

The host joked: ‘David said the chin and butt was too big, but we can go bigger on the chin!’

Phew! Host James, 40, was delighted when he revealed the prank to a relieved David

With a film crew documenting his journey to a private unveiling, the former Real Madrid star gushed: ‘It’s a special moment that I’ll be able to share with friends and family.’

On arrival, David quickly grew irritated when a fan, played by an actor’, referred to him as Dave, and purposely miscalled his former footballer team Manchester United for Manchester City.

Displaying his annoyance, the UNICEF ambassador hit back: ‘It’s Manchester United…my mum’s the only person who calls me Dave. You’re an interesting character!’

LA Galaxy president and former teammate Chris Klein, who James revealed is ‘someone David trusts’, was also in on the prank, as he showed the London native a clip of his worst games instead of his career highlights, causing the London native to shake his head in disappointment.

Visibly enraged, David shouted: ‘This is different than what it was when I last saw it in Chicago.

He asked his close pal Chris: ‘Are you happy with this, what do you think? I really don’t see how this can go out!’

David went on to question the actor: ‘How can you change this in a short amount of time? My parents and wife are coming over. Look how long my arms are, I look like stretch Armstrong!’
