"Be careful with the stings," warned one and: "Why are you not in a beekeeper's get up?… a bit risky," added another. A third penned: "You're brave. We used to be too until our little buggers took to stinging us at the slightest hint of an approach." The father-of-four was pictured crouching down in the grass near one of the multiple hives wearing an ordinary shirt with the sleeves rolled up.

David didn't wear a beekeeping suit to go near his hives

It's not the first time that fans have seen David's beehives, as it was back in 2020 that he started his passion for honey making.

The process of the star putting together a flat-pack beehive during the pandemic was documented by his wife Victoria. "David decided to start building beehives," VB said in the video, adding: "Is that your new project darling?" To which David replied: "You'll be very happy when we have our own honey."

The family's £6million converted farmhouse is full of other impressive features including a wine cellar, its own manmade lake and an outdoor pool. There is also a gym, an office for Victoria and a jaw-dropping pantry inside. The décor is rustic and yet modern and the family like to spend the holidays relaxing there. The only question is, when can we move in?
