David Beckham is planning to show off his chef skills by launching a new cookery show for a high profile network.

The 45-year-old former footballer has been putting his culinary skills to the test while isolating with his family in his Cotswolds mansion.

However, Dave may soon be inflicting his cooking tips and walkthroughs to a far-reaching audience amid reports he is trying to concoct a Netflix show starring himself in the chef seat.

He has been inspired by The F Word star and close friend Gordon Ramsay and wants to use his production company Studio 99 to make the series – which he is also pitching to the BBC.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: “One of the unintended benefits of lockdown for David has been the opportunity to do what he loves most - baking.

“He’s been recreating some of his mum’s old recipes, and got a load of pots and pans for his birthday recently.

David’s also used this time to really focus on Studio 99, and initially chatted to Gordon about the pair doing an Instagram Live.

“He’s seen how well Gordon has done with his own cookery shows and his Studio Ramsay production company, and Gordon’s given him some great advice.”

David’s Studio 99 company is reportedly already working on a raft of TV show ideas to feature the star sharing his insights in sport, travel and fashion.

Dave is well known for his love of eel pies and McDonalds burger sauce - which might give fans an idea of what kind of things he may whip up in the kitchen.

Meanwhile, a career change may help the star rebrand as the previously unshakeable Brand Beckham empire begins to falter.
