David Beckham encouraged men to be their own role model in a smouldering video for his new fragrance, Bold Instinct, revealed on Friday.

The iconic footballer, 45, looked handsome as he joined three other inspirational men who have taken bold steps in their lives, in the striking campaign video for his first fragrance since 2005’s Instinct.

Filmed in black and white, the video opens with former England captain David’s voiceover, as he says: ‘When I’m making the decision, I base it on intuition. And mostly it’s been about football and what’s best for my family.

‘Not everyone really backed my choices. I just tried to make the decisions that were right for me.

Encouraging men to observe their own values in life, David continued: ‘Doing right by yourself was everything I was brought up to be. For me there is no right or wrong. There is only right by you.’

Joining David in the campaign is albino model Leo Jonah, who has carved out a successful career in the fashion industry. 

He said: ‘When I made the decision to explore modelling, no-one looked like me in popular culture, I want to be that role model for the next generation.’

Next is dancer Lewis Cope, who grew up in a family of 14 with eight brothers and five sisters, all with a love of boxing. 

He said: ‘I’m from a huge working class family. Most of my brothers do boxing, it was just never really for me. I wanted to dance.’ 

Blind comedian Jamie MacDonald completes the line-up. Jamie took the brave decision to leave a secure banking job to go into stand-up comedy against all advice and despite having lost his sight in both eyes.

He said: ‘In stand up, you’re not treated like a blind guy that’s been given a bit of a chance. When you get a room full of people laughing, that’s when you see that it was the right choice for me.

‘I’m a stand-up comedian, who used to be a banker. In comedy I use blindness as part of my skill-set as opposed to a disability.

David’s fragrance, developed in partnership with perfumer Jean-Christophe Herault, launches on September 9 and features top notes of pineapple and laurel leaves along with nutmeg, cinnamon and patchouli.
