DAVID Beckham gets a shock on holiday as he runs into Fergie — but it was the Duchess of York rather than his former Manchester United boss.
The 47-year-old reportedly had a tempestuous relationship with tough-talking Scot Sir Alex Ferguson, who frowned upon his celebrity lifestyle.

But it was Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, rather than his former Manchester United boss
Happily it was Sarah Ferguson he and wife Victoria, 48, bumped into at a seafood restaurant on Italy’s Amalfi Coast.
Victoria kissed her 62-year-old pal, who hosted their daughter Harper’s sixth birthday party at Buckingham Palace in 2017.
The Beckhams have been staying aboard their £5million yacht.
David took the plunge after being inspired by maritime getaways with Sir Elton John and hubby David Furnish.
A source said: “David had a look around some yachts in the summer, and decided to treat himself.
“He helped design the boat himself, and has been incredibly hands-on with everything.
“It’s not an oligarch-stylee super-yacht, but it’s still pretty plush by anyone’s standards.
“He was inspired after holidaying with Elton and David on their boat – and loves life on the water.
“There will be an area for the kids to snorkel, and the boat will be a brilliant base for the whole Beckham clan to have magical holidays abroad.”
David is understood to have bought a Ferretti following a visit to the Italian shipyard’s HQ in Forli.
