Piers Morgan issues apology to David Beckham’s mum after Netflix doc

Piers Morgan has issued an apology to David Beckham’s mum after admitting to using his face as a dartboard in 1998.

Beckham, the docuseries in which David and Victoria Beckham open up their lives, had the biggest audience of the year in the UK by a wide margin – and according to Piers, it’s easy to see why.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, the TalkTV host revealed he had binged the entire series and “really enjoyed it”.

“Just watched the whole Beckham doc series on @netflix and to my absolute astonishment, really enjoyed it,” he penned to his 8.5million followers on the platform.

“And even more shockingly, I ended up liking & admiring them both. (Probably owe his mum an apology for the Mirror dartboard in 98 too…).”

In the post, Piers also apologised to his mum, Sandra, for using a dartboard of her son’s face in 1998.

The dartboard reference that Piers is referring to is, of course, the infamous moment that saw Beckham sent off during a World Cup match with Argentina – a game that England went on to lose in a penalty shoot-out.

Beckham was sent off for kicking the back of Diego Simeone’s leg with his heel in their round of 16 stage defeat, lashing out at the Argentina captain after he had shoved him to the ground.

After the game, an effigy of Beckham hung in a pub and, during the following season, Manchester United’s team bus was pelted with rocks and pint glasses at an away game at West Ham.

Despite Piers’ public apology to Becks, the former Good Morning Britain presenter labelled the former Real Madrid man as “creepy” in 2020 after he was pictured kissing his daughter, Harper, on the lips.

Laying into Beckham, Piers claimed it was “weird” that the former footballer was kissing his daughter on the lips at her age, then seven.

He also slammed Golden Balls for posting the photo on Instagram, which he claims opens it up to public scrutiny.

“David Beckham obviously posting pictures of his children, whilst then serving the right to respect their privacy,” he said during a segment on GMB, adding: “There he is kissing his daughter on the lips.”

“I’m sorry, it got a big furore on social media, it’s just weird. Who does that? Who kisses their kids on the lips?”
