The moment comedian Joe Lycett put 10,000 pounds in the shredder

When Beckham didn’t respond to or acknowledge the ultimatum in any way, Lycett appeared to fulfill his promise, live-streaming his dropping £10k into a wood chipper on a website with name

However, today, the 34-year-old admitted in a short video on social media, calling the stunt “a cliché threat made to get people talking”, and added that, like the football star’s controversial ambassadorial role, it was “absolutely b******* from the start”.

Calling this “the last message to David Beckham,” he jokingly calls himself “the p**** who spent a lot of money during the cost of living crisis.”

He went on to explain: “I still haven’t told you the whole truth… Because the truth is, the money that went into the shredder was real, but the money that came out was fake.

“I would never destroy real money. I would never be so irresponsible. In fact, £10,000 was donated to LGBTQ+ charities before I hit the first tweet of the week. before.”

He continued: “I never expected to hear from you. It was an empty threat, designed to get people talking.

“In a lot of ways, it’s like your deal with Qatar David, absolutely damn it from the start.”

He also tore up David Beckham’s famous cover of Attitude – the first cover of a gay magazine featuring a Premiere League footballer.

Lycett said he asked Attitude’s permission to shred it, and they said “they’re happy to let it.”

Then he put the June 2002 issue in a paper shredder set on bricks – not the industrial wood chipper he used for his first stunt – and looked at the mold. Beckham’s face disappeared into the machine.

He ended his video, filmed in the same dingy room as his money live stream the day before, by saying “it was all pretty much” and that he was “down to the village” gay to have a few pints.”
