Giving fans a glimpse of what’s on offer to him, Becks, 48, not only tucked into some delicious grub at Botafumeiro, but he had it fed to him by the restaurant manager – of course.

Scooping up a big ol’ forkful of baby eel, he proceeded to hold it up to David’s mouth, who happily gobbled it up with a smile.

Ever the professional, he even held a napkin under Becks’ chin to avoid spillage.

To top off the… intimate experience, the restaurateur wiped David’s face and seemed to take great pleasure in doing so, earning laughs from around the table.

David was clearly loving the attention and had quite the spread out in front of him as he dined with a group of pals.
