Posh and Becks - The Replay
Posh Spice and David Beckham are sitting in front of the Television watching the six O'
clock news. The headline feature is a man who is threatening to jump off the Clifton Suspension Bridge onto the busy A4
below. Posh turns to Beckham and says '
Dave, I bet you £5000 that he jumps.' He replies '
£5000! Done.' The pair shake on it and continue watching the commotion on the TV, sure enough, the man jumps
and hits the road below with a loud thud. Beckham takes £5000 out of his pocket and gives it to Posh. 'I can't
take that from you Dave' she says. I was cheating. I saw the Five O'
clock News earlier so I
Knew what was going to happen. I can't
accept that money.' Beckham replies, 'No Babe'. The money is yours fair and square. I was cheating too. I just didn't
think he would do it again.' Footnote:
