David and Victoria Beckham kicked off their New Year celebrations at The Ritz with the former England football captain cheekily poking fun at his wife’s “working-class” roots.

The duo, who often spend Christmas at their Cotswolds estate at Great Tew, enjoyed a lavish lunch with Victoria’s parents Jackie and Anthony Adams.

The couple shared a string of photos from the outing, showing Victoria in a royal blue dress and David in a dark suit and blue tie.

Victoria wrote: “Creating memories this NY Eve x family time really is everything x I love you all so much.”

David used the opportunity to poke fun at his wife, writing: “Just a nice casual New Year’s Eve lunch at The Ritz. @victoriabeckham Very working class 😂 My mother & father in law left in there Roll’s.”

The gag is a reference to the Beckham Netflix documentary, in which Victoria says she grew up “working class”.

David interjects to tell her to “be honest”, prompting her to reveal that her father drove a Rolls Royce when she was at school.

Last week it was revealed the couple have raked in more than £130 million in yearly sales across their consumer, media and fashion empires amid the success of the Netflix series.

On July 4 1999, David and Spice Girls star Victoria Adams tied the knot at a lavish ceremony in Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland.

After her exit from the Spice Girls, Victoria, who was known as Posh Spice, embarked on a solo music career in the 2000s before becoming a fashion designer.

David, 48, is now co-owner of US football team Inter Miami, who recently signed Argentine superstar Lionel Messi, 36.

David and Victoria share four children – Brooklyn, 24, Romeo, 20, Cruz, 18, and Harper, 11.
