They may be one of the most genetically blessed families around and have a lifestyle to make lesser mortals drool, but the Beckhams just can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to the public’s opinion of them.

For as long as they’ve been around – and it’s been more than 20 years now – Posh and Becks have been picked apart for everything from their fame to their bucks to their parenting. Whether it’s because they’re too in-your-face about their pampered lives or people are just plain jealous, the Beckhams really are the family everyone loves to hate.

Latest news from Beckingham Palace is that the family has signed a deal with Netflix to shoot a fly-on-the-wall series that will showcase their splendid lives. The camera crew will apparently focus on David, following him around as he goes about his day, but will also explore archive material of Posh and Becks’ past, including from way back when they got together, her as Spice Girl, him as a footballer in the prime of his career.
