The former England player, 47, admitted he was conscious of ‘sounding like a right k**b’ during the chat, which saw him detail his life as part of Gary’s 29 Questions YouTube series.
David – who has been married to former Spice Girl Victoria since 1999 – didn’t hold back as he detailed his wife’s bad habits, as well as the tick he has that Victoria can’t stand.

Explaining that Victoria hates it when he continually clears his throat, he said: ‘She doesn’t love that. I’ve not always done it, maybe for the last 15 years.
‘There’s probably a couple of other things that I do and she’s not. I’m very clean and she’s not.’
Not wanting people to think his wife is unhygienic, he quickly added: ‘As in, I’m tidy and she’s not.’
He jokingly added: ‘She washes, from time to time.’

David also revealed that contrary to popular belief, his fashion designer wife has never had any influence over what he wore.
He said: ‘People always though Victoria had a big influence over what I was wearing or hairstyles or tattoos. I always made the decision of wearing a full leather outfit or full denim outfit. I loved fashion.’
The father-of-four went on to say his favourite Spice Girls song is Say You’ll Be There which he heard for the first time with Gary while in Maldova.

David also discussed some of his famous hairstyles from years’ past, admitting his cornrows and mohawk looks were his most ‘controversial’.
He confessed: ‘I had those done in the South of France when I had a glass of rosé!’
Asked what his favourite hairstyle was, he added: ‘Apart from this one, I always liked the skinhead. It was easy, you didn’t have to do anything with it. I loved the skinhead.’
The sports star – who said he reckons he now has 81 tattoos – also discussed his inkings, saying the ones of his childrens names are his favourites.

He said: ‘I probably have 81 now, individual 81. The first one was Brooklyn on the bottom of my back, the second one was the angel. I was sleeping at your house at the time and it stuck to your bed.
He added: It’s hard to pick a favourite one… kid’s names… and Victoria’s. Throw that one in.’
Asked which one of his children is closest to him in personality, David gave a diplomatic answer.
He said: ‘It’s an obvious thing. I see a bit of me in all the kids. The stubbornness in Romeo, the kindness of Harper, I’d say. Brooklyn is a softie and very caring.
‘Cruz… Victoria has always said I’m quite funny and no one knows that. Cruz is quite a character so I’d like to say Cruz has my funny side.’
While David was diplomatic in his answers, he confessed that he was worried about coming across as a ‘k**b’ when it came to detailing his new morning routine.
He said: ‘What I first do is have a cup of coffee, actually wake the kids up then have a cup of coffee. I love coffee. The weird thing is, and I am going to sound like a right k*** now.
‘In London I have a black coffee, in the countryside I have a latte. Makes me sound like a bit of a k***, I don’t know why. I never have a latte in London and I never have black coffee in the countryside.
‘I love the countryside, always, always loved the countryside. I like the combination, during the week I am in London because the kids are at school but then weekends I am in the countryside – and I love being in the country.’
