has reportedly been considering an offer to join Dancing on Ice
The legendary footballer is apparently facing pressure from his wife Victoria Beckham, friend and Dancing on Ice fan
Justin Bieber and the show's coach Christopher Dean to appear in next year's series.
"He'd be great," Dean told the Daily Star
. "He likes music so hopefully he has rhythm. We like the idea of an athlete from a different sport."
On Beckham's chances of success in the rink, he added: "You assume contestants are going to be good physically, but they aren't always co-ordinated for dancing."
Beckham himself is quoted by the publication as saying: "There are a lot of options. I'm not in a great rush to decide."
Dean's skating partner Jayne Torvill previously named Beckham as her fantasy Dancing on Ice contestant
Other stars tipped to appear
on the ITV contest include Corey Feldman, Chesney Hawkes, actress Jennifer Ellison and Sugababes singer Heidi Range.
