Golden boy... David Beckham takes his mother Sandra for a Pie and Mash lunch and drops in to surprise visit his grandmother

He is good looking, athletic, a fan of male grooming and judging by these photographs he is a real mummy's boy.
David Beckham arrived back in London today and chose to combine two of his favourite things in one swift move.
The 37-year-old picked up his mother Sandra and headed straight for his east London cuisine of choice - pie and mash.

The Los Angeles Galaxy footballer posted a picture on his Facebook page of his lunch date with his mother, earlier today.
He said: 'As I'm sure you would have expected, I had a pie and mash lunch today with my mum. There is nothing better.'
The photograph, which was uploaded a little over two hours ago, already has over 40,000 likes and almost 2,000 comments.

The father-of-four looked like a real dapper dandy as he wore a black Big Apple Cap with a plain grey T-shirt and was still sporting some well shaped facial hair.
With his tattoos on show, a proud David smiled at the camera with his mother as a Union flag hung patriotically in the background.
The former England football captain then played the doting grandson as he left Sandra and dropped in to see his grandmother.

Beckham is sure to have made his millions of female fans swoon with the cute photograph that shows him standing with a number of grey haired women.
Although it is unclear which lady is Grandmother West, they all look happy and proud to be standing with the star footballer.

'I think the same thing when I look at the pictures... but I know I'm a happy person': Victoria Beckham on that pout

She is as famous for her pout as anything else, but Victoria Beckham insists that despite appearances, she is far from miserable.
In a frank chat with German Interview magazine, the designer, 38, says that she is aware that the vast majority see her as sour-faced, but doesn't let it get to her.
'Yes, I created this persona and I’m very different from that,' the mother-of-four says.

'I don’t feel like I have to scream and shout about it - I know I am a happy person. So I don’t get upset when people comment on the fact that I look quite miserable all the time.
 
She adds: 'But people think I am. And you know, sometimes I think the same thing when I look at the pictures.'
Her pout and love of designer clothes landed Victoria with the moniker Posh during her Spice Girls days.

During the interview, Mrs Beckham recalls her singing days back in the Nineties with fondness, but admits that she has truly come into her own since ditching the microphone and turning her hand to designing.
'Was music my talent really? No, I don’t think I was particularly talented,' she admits. 'With the other girls, the five of us all really worked together. But talented? I sound a bit odd to myself.'
Victoria lounges on a stretch of grass in a white top and short shorts in the photoshoot for Interview.
In another, she reads E.M. Forster's novel The Longest Journey with a leather jacket covering her shoulders.
Both Beckhams have been covering magazines this week, with Victoria's husband David gracing UK Elle magazine.
In his interview, David reveals a little of the couple's home life.
He says: 'She comes home and shows me what she's been doing all day and what exciting dresses and bags she's got coming through. And then I say something boring like "I got kicked today."

'We try to go out at least once a week, just the two of us, a quiet dinner somewhere.
The Beckhams may be worth £165million, but David added that the fame side of their life isn't important.
'I never thought about the money, the fame - it never interested me and it doesn't interest me now. None of that has ever excited me.'

She kissed a marine and liked it! Katy Perry makes a sailor's dream come true as they share a smooch during Fleet week

She already did her bit for Fleet Week by slipping on a patriotic American flag dress and performing in a concert.
But Katy Perry went one step further to salute the sailors at a special event in Brooklyn, New York on Wednesday evening.
The 27-year-old made one marine's dream come true as she passionately kissed him on stage in between performing her hit song, Part Of Me.
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO...

She had brought the handsome man in uniform to the platform, stealing his hat in the process.
Wiggling her hips, she coyly asked the crowd: 'Does it look good on me?'
The singer then asked the rowdy sailors whether they were familiar with an iconic Forties picture of a nurse kissing a sailor against the backdrop of Times Square.

She then turned to her man and asked: 'Do you know what I am talking about? You want to do it? You promise you are not going to drop me? You're not gonna drop me? If you drop me, I am going to sick all my friends on you,' she said pointing to the rowdy crowd of uniformed men.
Counting to three, Katy instructed the man to kiss her on the lips.
Dipping her back, he then eagerly locked lips with the brunette bombshell.

Earlier in the evening, the pop star showed her love for her country when she sported an American flag dress for her arrival at the Fleet Week show.
The satin frock looked like an asymmetric mini dress on first glance but was revealed in all its glory when she stuck her left arm out on the red carpet.
The dress then transformed into the Star-Spangled Banner – and if that wasn’t patriotic enough, the singer also gave a sweet salute.
Realising her dress was making a fashion statement, Katy kept the rest of her outfit simple.

She sported a pair of black platform pumps and tied her long violet locks into a high ponytail.
The star performed a special show on the Brooklyn waterfront for the group of US sailors, even singing into a microphone decorated with American flag diamantes.
Katy belted out her hit track Part of Me, sticking to the military theme of the occasion with her backing dancers sporting soldier style outfits.

Fleet Week takes place every year and sees military ships dock in various American cities across seven days so that the crews can see the sights.
And Katy was clearly delighted to be asked to be part of such a patriotic celebration.
She posted on her Twitter: ‘Sea men dock their vessels in the great city of NYC to experience the land from whence they came. I'm about to give them a show!’

'I want to know what she keeps in her bag:' Her Majesty leaves Joan Collins weak at the knees

These three ladies may have a combined age of 237, but they still know how to party.
Joan Collins last night chose a splendid way to celebrate her 79th birthday - and Her Majesty seemed just as delighted to share the moment.
Our 86-year-old Queen had a beaming smile on her face as she met the veteran actress at a Diamond Jubilee arts celebration in London.
How do you do? Joan Collins, right, curtsies to Queen Elizabeth
Awkward move: As Hollywood royalty, Joan Collins is not used to having to bow down to anyone. So it's little wonder that the usually poised Joan Collins looked uncharacteristically awkward as she attempted to curtsey to the Queen last night

Mrs Collins looked stunning as she curtsied in her cream frilly dress and silver heels, standing next to fellow Dynasty soap opera star Kate O'Mara.
 
She also defied her age of 72, looking fabulous in a purple gown and leopard-print heels.
The actresses were among hundreds of music, dance and art celebrities who gathered to pay tribute to the Queen at the Royal Academy of Arts.
'I'm such a great admirer of her,' Mrs Collins said.
'I think she is the most wonderful, incredible woman and just a great Queen.
'There will never be anyone like her again. I always want to know what she keeps in the handbag.'

Cannes we both come? Kim Kardashian and reality star rival Paris Hilton both spotted at P Diddy boat party

She's was dubbed one of the original reality stars.
But last night Paris Hilton had some hot competition in the form of her successor Kim Kardashian.
The two TV personalities were both on board for P Diddy's yacht party in Cannes last night.

It is not clear whether their paths crossed - but the two ladies were seen waltzing around in their respective glamorous ensembles.
 
Kim poured her ample curves into a stunning lace outfit which consisted of a crop top and matching maxi skirt.
The two-piece outfit featured a beige slip and black lace overlay which included sequinned detailing.

The top had a sexy cut-out back and fell high enough for Kim to flash her toned stomach.
Kim swept her brunette tresses into an elegant ponytail and accessorised her outfit with black and silver chandelier earrings and a cute black bracelet.
Earlier, she attended the famous VIP Room club at the JW Marriott hotel to kick off her first evening at the Film Festival.

The skirt trailed along the floor as Kim walked the red carpet, giving a wave to her admirers at the same time.
Paris, meanwhile, opted for a demure floor-length deep pink dress, wearing her blonde locks on the Diddy boat party.
Paris, of course, is credited with teaching Kim the ropes of the reality TV world.
They used to be firm friends back in the day - although their relationship has cooled over recent years.

Bromance: P Diddy embraces one of his guests, Adrien Brody

Other celebs at the party tonight included Paris's sister Nicky, Michelle Rodriguez, Adrien Brody and Tara Reid, who was spotted leaving at 4am looking a little worse for wear.
Earlier in the day Kim was spotted in an all-black outfit but the French sunshine wasn’t enough to put a smile on her face.
However the reason behind her miserable mood may have been that she was forced to drag herself away from boyfriend Kanye West today to fly to Nice.
She left her man behind in London where he will play another show at the O2 London tonight with Jay-Z.
However the couple were later reunited and spotted walking arm in arm around the Cannes harbour at around 4am this morning after Kanye jetted in.
