The star was faced with a dilemma, however, reaching out to fans for advice following an unwelcome infestation in her orchard. 

"Okay so I have a question for the gram. We have these really lovely apple trees in the garden. And all I want to know is at what point do you get to the apples before the birds and the bees do?" asked Victoria.

"Because I've come out today wanting to pick some of these apples (yes I was going to try and make a crumble, or a pie, or something like that) and look, they've all been eaten! Little creatures got there before I did. So what do you do? I'm thinking do I put some kind of hair net on this tree next year?!" questioned the star.

Football star David is quite the talented chef, and often whipped up culinary creations in the kitchen whilst the family were in lockdown earlier this year. "And yes I know I'd need help with the pie before you say anything @davidbeckham," teased Victoria, who chimed in before her foodie husband could comment.
