Doting dad David isn't the only Beckham to switch up his hairstyle during lockdown. David's wife, Victoria Beckham, also debuted a new look last month when she posted a make-up tutorial sporting noticeably lighter locks.

"Like the new hair colour," one follower replied to the designer's post, while another added: "Did you lighten your hair? I love it!"

The star did tell her fans that she had been outside a lot during lockdown, so no doubt her lighter hair look is from the sun's rays rather than the bleach bottle. "At the moment I've spent a little bit more time in the sun, so my skin is a bit more tanned," she said.

Victoria isn't the only one to have had their hair lightened by the Cotswolds sun. In May, the former Spice Girl shared a photo of her eight-year-old daughter Harper's long hair, and the little girl also had visibly lighter tresses.

And then there's Cruz, David and Victoria's 15-year-old son, who took things to a whole new level at the beginning of lockdown in April, when he got his famous mum to dye the tips of his hair a snazzy shade of bubble gum pink.

Posting a snap of his new hair colour at the time, the teenager wrote: "Fank [sic] mum." We wonder whether

Victoria would ever try the candyfloss colour herself...
