David and Victoria Beckham look like they're set to finally break their silence on past infidelity rumours thanks to a revealing new Netflix series.

The director of BECKHAM, a four-part series about the footballer's life on and off the pitch set to premiere next week, has confirmed he quizzed both David and Victoria about "the difficulties they went through" when filming the documentary - admitting "it wasn't pleasant" to ask David to discuss rumours about allegations he was once unfaithful.

The Manchester United legend, 48, and Victoria, 49, have been loved up since meeting in 1997, tying the knot in 1999 and welcoming four children into the world together.

While the happy couple may have one of the strongest marriages in showbiz these days, claims David had indulged in extra-martial affairs plagued the pair during the early 00s.

Other than denying press reports and claims at the time, both David and Victoria have kept quiet about the past scandals - until now. The iconic couple both discuss their relationship in the new Netflix series, with director Fisher Stevens seemingly confirming no subject was off limits when it came to probing questions.

Speaking with The Times, the BECKHAM director - recommended to David by Leonardo DiCaprio, no less - admits he does ask the dad-of-four about historic rumoured infidelity scandals.

"It wasn't pleasant, but we got into it. For me, I approached it as 'How did your marriage stay together?' and you'll see how he responds. I talked with both of them about the difficulties they went through," Fisher reveals.

Backing Fisher up, BECKHAM producer John Battsek seemingly confirms Victoria is also quizzed about possible marriage troubles, adding: "They were both signed up to telling us whatever we wanted to know. I'm sure you'll say, 'Of course you would say that.' But they were. There was no 'You will not ask that or do that'. Fisher and I thought that might be the case, but we were clear from the start that we would only do this if we could go in any direction we wanted. And we did."

In April 2004, the now-defunct News of the World published claims by David's former personal assistant Rebecca Loos that he and Rebecca had an extramarital affair. Rebecca claimed the affair took place after she was assigned to look after David in Spain following his transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2003.

Rebecca alleged her romantic dalliance with Becks took place over the course of four months, with wife Victoria unaware. The now 46-year-old's claims were never verified and David blasted his former assistant's allegations as "ludicrous" at the time, but never launched legal action against either Rebecca or the News of the World.
