  Becks linked with Simpsons role
Updated 05 December 2003, 15.07
David Beckham may be appearing in The Simpsons
England captain David Beckham could be about to follow Tony Blair and JK Rowling by being in The Simpsons.

The Real Madrid star was rumoured to be in an episode earlier in the year, but then telly bosses decided not enough US people would have heard of him.

The Sun newspaper says they've changed their minds following a tour of the US Becks and Posh went on this year.

The episode with Tony Blair and JK in it will be shown on Sky One in the UK on 9 January.


Back in April an executive producer on the show said: "We thought about Becks but soccer isn't big in the States.

"He's not really famous enough. I've heard of him because my daughter plays soccer."

Maybe more people have heard of him in the US by now.
