James Corden says he nearly touched David Beckham’s golden balls!

by Lynn Connolly

Comedian James Corden has revealed that he once nearly touched David Beckham’s undercarriage while the pair shared a bath together for a Comic Relief sketch.

James made the humorous revelation in his new autobiography which is entitled, May I Have Your Attention Please. Extracts from the book are being serialized in The Sun.

Of his rather close brush with Beckham, James wrote, “In the bath, we were both sitting there, having a chat about anything and everything.

“And all the time I was thinking about the times I’d watched England play, how Becks made me jump out of my seat: The free kick against Greece that took us to the Euros, the penalty against Argentina in the World Cup…

“And here I was, in my pants in the bath with him. If I’d moved my foot two inches to the left, it would have been stroking the golden balls of Goldenballs.”

James went on to say that David “had no qualms” about the list of ideas the funnyman came up with for the sketches.

In fact, James added that David also came up with a few ideas of his own.

He said, “It was his idea that we both wore towels on our heads like women.

“Top of our list we put: Share a bed with Smithy, have a bath together, restyling David’s hair and flower-arranging.

“There was no way on earth he and his agent would say yes to them, so the next few ideas would be much easier to sell.

“An hour later, David’s agent said he was happy to do everything. We couldn’t believe it. Never in a million years did we think they’d go for it.”

You can order James’s book now by calling The Sun Bookshop.
