David and Victoria first met at a football charity event near his hometown of Cheshire back in 1998.

Back then, Victoria was a member of the much-loved girl band, Spice Girls.

And David was the star player of the English Premier League team, Manchester United.

It seems that they were a match made in heaven, right?

Well, it actually took a couple of meetings for the pair to finally organize a date.

Speaking to Jimmy of the night they first met, David recalled...

"We knew of [the Spice Girls], obviously, because they were pretty big at the time, and I was just establishing myself in the Manchester United team."

He admitted that Victoria was "obviously" his favorite Spice Girl...

So she caught his eye almost instantly. No, you're dying of jealousy...

He went on to explain that, though she had caught his eye, he didn't get the chance to speak to her that day.

"I didn't get to talk to her that day, but then the week after, she came back up to Manchester to watch another [football] game."

This was David's chance.

And, being one of the most famous soccer players in the world at that time, his chances were looking pretty good.

The pair got the chance to finally sit down and talk later that evening...

"We talked for about an hour in the player's lounge," David told Jimmy.

And it was here where David finally found the courage to ask for her number.

After plenty of drinks, of course. "She'd had a couple of drinks, so I decided, 'Why not?' I'd try to get her number."

Keep it classy, Becks.

But hey, it worked, didn't it?

David went on to recall that Victoria had caught the train to Manchester that day...

And her ticket was the only piece of paper she had on her.

So she went on to write her number on it.

And David has kept hold of it this entire time. "And she'd actually got the train up that day, so she wrote her number down on her train ticket, which I still have."

And here they are now, just months away from their twenty-first wedding anniversary.

As the Jimmy and the crowd coo'd and aww'd, David smiled and said: "Twenty years later, and four kids later."
