David Beckham has admitted that he cries while watching films and TV programmes, such as Friends!

The football legend revealed that he has a sensitive side in front of the telly while chatting to DJ Nick Grimshaw earlier today (12 December) on Radio 1's Breakfast Show.

He said: "I'm kind of an emotional wreck with movies. I can't get through some movies without shedding a tear."

David, 38, went on to admit that one particularly difficult film to watch with a dry eye is the Bruce Willis blockbuster, Armageddon.

As if that wasn't surprising enough, the father-of-four also has a little cry while tuning into TV favourites, The Office and Friends.

He added: "I'm the same when I'm watching The Office or Friends… I can't get through it."

Aren't those shows supposed to be comedies, David?!

The hunky sports star appeared on the Breakfast Show to discuss his new football documentary, The Class Of '92, which follows the rise and career of himself and fellow football aces Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville and Paul Scholes.

And given that David is such a softie, the Class Of '92 almost had him reaching for the tissues too!

"I showed the boys the trailer the other day and I kind of got choked up," he told Nick.

Bless him!

David announced that he is retiring from football earlier this year, in May, and he and Victoria have now permanently moved their family back on to British soil.

But while some people might be sad to leave behind the warmth of Los Angeles - where the Beckhams have been based for a number of years - David can't get enough of the UK weather.

He said: "I was so happy when I came back to London. I was so happy to see the clouds… I miss the frost."

Trading in sunny LA beaches for clouds and frost? Hmm, we're not sure we'd be as excited!
