In their new Netflix Documentary, the Beckhams address the infamous affair rumours, and a body language expert has revealed some interesting details.
Former teammate Gary Neville said: “It was like an addict. He’d drive four hours to spend 20 minutes with her."
He also detailed how the pair would spend hours and hours on the phone to each other.
Judi James, body language expert, said it looked as though Victoria did not want to address the issue.
She noted how David looked ‘vulnerable’ throughout the documentary, and even became angry at times.
When broaching the topic of the affair, Judi told the Daily Mail: “The alleged affair brings out a more political response from David.
“There is no eye contact with the interviewer and took some deep, self-controlling breaths as he started to speak slowly and carefully.
"The ex-footballer did become slightly emotional when talking about how this story in the press affected him, and she noted that he had ‘anger in his eye expression."
When commenting on Victoria’s way of talking about the allegations, Judi said: “She looks and sounds poised and emphatic, although there are three tells that suggest she’d still rather keep the subject to herself.
“She brings one hand up and keeps it flat in an emphatic chopping gesture but as she speaks she keeps it there as a barrier.
“Then the second hand joins it and lastly she raises her leg to form a complete barrier ritual.”
David described the pair’s mentally throughout their relationship, claiming that they are ‘fighters’ and that they needed to ‘fight for each other’ and ‘ fight for our [their] family’.
The series consists of four episodes exploring their personal and professional lives, with a huge focus on their relationship.
Talking about her husband during their rocky period, Victoria said: “Here's the thing, we were against each other, if I'm being completely honest.
“Up until Madrid sometimes it felt like us against everybody else but we were together, we were connected, we had each other.
“But when we were in Spain, it didn't really feel like we had each other either.
“And that's sad, I can't even begin to tell you how hard it was, and how it affected me.”
