Retired English footballer Rio Ferdinand has opened up about his friendship with David and Victoria Beckham.

The BT Sport pundit, 44, and Inter Miami president, 47, both represented England in the World Cup, and Rio would sometimes dine with the Beckhams during training.

While speaking to Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Thursday, host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson admitted she was ‘obsessed’ with Victoria’s diet because the fashion designer is a notoriously picky eater.

Rio responded: ‘I’ve never seen her eat anything. I don’t remember anything that sticks out of my memory, to be honest.’

‘Was she nice?’ Jackie then asked, to which Rio replied: ‘Yeah, she is nice.’

Jackie’s co-host Kyle Sandilands then laughed: ‘You can’t be asking a player about another soccer player’s wife!’

Back in July, Victoria offered a glimpse of her ‘extreme’ diet after David admitted she ‘only eats grilled fish and vegetables’.

The mother of four, 48, told Vogue Australia her husband made her tastes ‘sound boring’ when in fact she fills her diet with ‘healthy fat’ and regularly does detoxes where she abstains from drinking alcohol.

Victoria’s comments came after a high-profile chef revealed the star’s ‘complicated’ dinner demands when she and David attended Spanish footballer Sergio Ramos’ 2019 wedding, where she constantly requested ‘bowls of mints and coconut water’.

Following David’s remarks about her diet, Victoria told Vogue: ‘I mean, talk about making me sound boring! No. What he meant is that he’s never met anyone who is more disciplined with the way that they eat.

‘I eat lots of healthy fat: fish, avocado, nuts, that sort of thing. I do drink alcohol, unless I have a reason not to.

‘I’ll detox from anything for three to six months where I won’t drink. I’m quite extreme in anything I do, whether it’s eating or working out or drinking or not drinking.’

Earlier this year, David offered insight into Victoria’s eating habits while discussing his own favourite foods during a podcast interview.

‘I get quite emotional about food and wine, when I’m eating something great I want everyone to try it,’ he said.

‘Unfortunately I’m married to someone that has eaten the same thing for the last 25 years!

‘Since I met her she only eats grilled fish [and] steamed vegetables. She will very rarely deviate from that.’

In 2011, when Victoria was pregnant with Harper, she went to dinner with husband David and Gordon Ramsay.

Gordon recalled she asked for the smoked trout salad and asked for it plain with the dressing on the side. 

According to the menu, the dish is normally served with grapefruit, avocado, red onion and lemon, but Victoria requested these be taken off.

However, the restaurant refused to make the alterations, with Gordon criticising them for the decision.

He said: ‘The lady’s pregnant! No one is asking to be fussy…. I still think that’s the customer’s prerogative…. It was a sour note. 

‘I don’t think customers should be treated that way. That might not be the way I choose to eat it, but that’s what the customer wants.’
