David Beckham says wife Victoria has eaten same meal for 25 years

Variety might be the spice of life, but not if you are Victoria Beckham apparently.
While most of us might have the same breakfast each more, Posh Spice has stuck to the same simple dinner for the last 25 years – according to her husband, David.
Despite being desperate for his wife change the habit of a lifetime and try new cuisine, it seems the mum-of-four is truly stuck in her ways.
The couple have been married since 1997, with the designer’s obsession with the staple meal seemingly being a sore point in their relationship.
Despite this, Victoria has still scarfed down the same dinner each night for the past 25 years – much to the annoyance of her food-loving other half.
Appearing on the River Cafe Table 4 podcast last year, the footballer talked about the joy he found in trying new food – which his wife has yet to sample.
"I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I'm eating something great I want everyone to try it," Beckham explained.
He then pointedly told listeners: "Since I met her she only eats grilled fish, steamed vegetables, she will very rarely deviate from that."
"The only time she's probably ever shared something that's been on my plate was actually when she was pregnant with Harper, and it was the most amazing thing.
"It was one of my favourite evenings. I can't remember what it was but I know she's not eaten it since."
Though they might not share the same passion for culinary arts, Beckham hasn’t let this dull his passion for cooking.
He said: "Pretty recently I was in isolation for five days because I'd just been to Italy so I came back and on one of the last days Victoria's parents had a party and I couldn't actually go to it. So everyone was out of the house and I secretly loved it.
"I literally had two of the most amazing cuts of meat. One was a T-bone and I had some English wagyu, I poured one glass of the most amazing red wine that I treated myself to because I was on my own looking forward to watching the football in the afternoon on my own. So I set the barbecue up."
The former Manchester United player continued, saying: "I think there's nothing better than when you have time to get everything right.
"I had a nice tomato and shallot salad and the meat and a glass of wine and it was the most amazing meal that I had for a long time. Those are my most amazing afternoons and evenings.”
Hopefully, the couple aren’t walking on eggshells about their different taste in food.
