David Beckham set for The View

The footy ace - whose wife Victoria Beckham was a guest co-host of the show earlier this year - will appear on the programme on Monday April 26.

Network ABC said it will be the first time the 34-year-old sports star - who is recovering from a torn Achilles tendon - has appeared on the weekday talk show.

The View features hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.
