David and Victoria Beckham’s former bodyguard Craig Ainsworth has dubbed the Spice Girl ‘the boss of the household’.
The former Marine protected the couple’s family from 2013 to 2015 when they lived in Holland Park, London.
Speaking to The Mirror, the former bodyguard, who has protected the likes of Johnny Depp, Jennifer Lawrence and Arnold Schwarzenegger, also said that their documentary was an ‘accurate picture of their life’.
He said: ‘I feel most women are in charge and just let us men feel like we’re in charge half the time.
‘David and Victoria are both highly professional and have had so much security we’re like back- ground noise to them, we’re part of the furniture. David was charming.

Opening up: He also told how David’s Netflix documentary, titled BECKHAM, is an accurate depiction of their lives and told how they handled fame with ‘grace’
‘Victoria kept to herself, she would be with the kids or working, with the spotlight they have been under, their kids are well-behaved.
‘To have that level of fame and maintain their family unit, they must be doing something right.’
To pass as the Beckham’s bodyguard, Craig was pepper-sprayed in the eyes, tackled an MMA fighter in the dark in training and had to sign a 50-year Non Disclosure Agreement.
Craig said the couple keep each other honest, and referenced the humorous moment when David poked fun at Victoria for saying she was ‘working class’ in their documentary.
In the series, Victoria said she was from a ‘working class’ family before David cheekily pointed out that her father used to drive her to school in a Rolls-Royce.
In a segment talking about growing up Victoria said: ‘We both come from families that work very hard we’re very working class’.
Hearing the interview from another room David then poked his head round the corner and chipped in: ‘Be honest!’
An agitated Victoria replied: ‘I am being honest!’

David then asked her: ‘What car did your dad drive you to school in?’
She then started to answer saying: ‘So my dad did…’ before her interrupted her saying: ‘It just needs one answer!’
Posh then retorted that it ‘wasn’t a simple answer’ before he asked her again what car it was.
She then said: ‘It depends but yes in the 80s my dad had a Rolls Royce!’ – before David retorts ‘thank you’ and then leaves.
Viewers were quick to react to the moment as one joked: ‘Victoria Beckham is the queen of dry humour!’
Another said: ‘Love him humbling her. Like her name was posh spice.’
A third wrote: ‘I love the fact that he called her out!’ while someone else said: lmao he loves to humble her. They are the sweetest couple.’
Another wrote: ‘She is iconic. The delivery of her lines throughout the whole of the series is top notch.’
