Gavin & Stacey star says Becks is nicest man he's ever met

James Corden has joked that he has a soft spot for David Beckham.

The Gavin & Stacey star and the footballer, 34, have recorded a sketch together for this Friday’s Sport Relief telethon.

‘I felt privileged to spend a couple of days with him filming,’ James, 31, tells Now.

‘I’ve sort of fallen in love with him a bit. He’s just the nicest, most unassuming, pleasant and respectful man I’ve ever met.

‘Did I give David a massage? I couldn’t possibly comment!’
