Radio 2 beckons for Beckham

David Beckham has signed up for a Christmas Day Radio 2 show. Listeners to the BBC national station are being invited to ring in and ask the former England team captain questions on the two-hour slot.

Former X Factor host Kate Thornton will be co-presenting with the footballer and it is hoped that Beckham, 32, will choose some of the music with his fans.

Thornton said: "David signing up to do this is a real coup. I am merely the ref, and yes, I do know the offside rule!

"We're delighted David has agreed to open himself up and take listeners' questions, so if they have something they want to ask him they can get in touch and get involved."

The show is being pre-recorded with the LA Galaxy star just before Christmas.

Listeners are invited to submit questions either by email, phone or postcard to Radio 2 for a one week period from today.
