The Spice Girls were at the height of their success when, in 1997, Victoria attended a post-match party at Manchester United’s home stadium. The then 23-year-old admitted to being nervous about meeting the team’s handsome star. “I wanted to sound like I knew something about football and said something like: 'Good game, then?'," she later revealed. “He laughed, and that was it.”

The pair started dating immediately afterwards and, following one of the UK’s most talked-about romances in living memory, they tied the knot on July 4, 1999. Unsurprisingly, the lavish ceremony in Ireland’s Luttrellstown Castle also drew media attention. David and his fiancée, glamorous in a £60,000 Vera Wang gown, sat on matching gold thrones to receive their guests. And for the England skipper the big day was nothing less than a dream come true. “I started thinking about proposing a week after I met her," he later confessed.
