England footie ace David Beckham has jetted back to the UK to be at his father's side after Beckham senior suffered a serious heart attack. The LA-based star boarded a flight to London Heathrow shortly after being told his father, Ted, was seriously ill.
Fifty-nine-year-old gas fitter Ted - who is divorced from David's mother - was rushed to hospital after complaining of chest pains at his Essex home. He's now in a stable condition at an east London hospital.
According to reports, the soccer star's dad had to be resuscitated in the ambulance en route. "Ted was in a bad way and actually died on his way to hospital," a source told a British newspaper. "The paramedics managed to bring him back."
