That’s wild! Becks’ boy lands plum job on Sir David’s epic


BEING the son of A-list stars Posh and Becks hasn’t done Brooklyn Beckham’s career prospects any harm. And now it has helped him get his most prestigiou­s role yet.

The 20-year-old landed a job filming on legendary wildlife broadcaste­r Sir David Attenborou­gh’s epic new Netflix series Our Planet, which was launched to a vast global audience last week.

I can reveal that Brooklyn jetted out to the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya to film behind-the-scenes segments for the From Deserts To Grasslands episodes of the eight-part documentar­y series.

Brooklyn, whose previous jobs include being a photograph­er for both fashion giant Burberry as well as his mother Victoria’s eponymous label, teamed up with Attenborou­gh and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) for his latest venture.

During his week-long trip to Kenya, the Beckhams’ eldest son learned how to film wildlife – a huge contrast from his last contract with BMW, where he took pictures of the German firm’s Z4 sports car.

He was said to be ‘amazed’ when he saw five cheetahs hurtle past, and he


IT SEEMS that Brooklyn is not the only child with famous parents to be handed a career boost – Spice Girl Mel B has appointed her daughter to help run her recording and publishing company.

Mel, known as Scary Spice during her heyday, has named her eldest child Phoenix-Chi, 20, as a director of Moneyspide­r Production­s. But Phoenix, the pop star’s daughter with former dancer Jimmy Gulzar, might have her work cut out – the latest accounts show the company made a profit of just £2,500.

And then there will be the Spice Girls reunion to contend with following her mum’s revelation­s about her lesbian liaisons with bandmate Geri Halliwell. Scary or what!


also played a football match with local children.

Brooklyn celebrated his role by attending the black-tie premiere of Our Planet at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Thursday night with his dad David. The pair posed alongside Sir David, right, and also met Princes William and Harry at the event. A source close to Brooklyn said: ‘He had the time of his life.

‘He couldn’t believe that he was given such an opportunit­y.’

It is understood that the former model, who briefly studied photograph­y at the prestigiou­s Parsons School of Design in New York, was viewed by Attenborou­gh and the WWF as a someone with a huge social media following who could get other youngsters involved in saving the planet.

Brooklyn has already amassed 11.5 million followers on Instagram and 334,000 on Twitter.

Proud dad David, 43, congratula­ted his son for his work, posting on his own Instagram page to his 55 million followers: ‘Amazing, what a trip.’


WOULD you pay an extra £1,500 for a pair of trainers that had been doodled on by a teenager? That’s what Damien Hirst’s son Cassius, 19, is asking punters to do. Posting pictures on his Instagram account, the youngster, left, is flogging Nike trainers worth around £100 for almost £1,600 because he has painted some of his designs on them. Some followers weren’t too impressed, though. One wrote: ‘I love these, but a little expensive for painting some crappy Nikes.’
