If you’re not pleased about returning to work after a long Easter weekend, this is bound to cheer you up! 

Elle UK teased its Twitter followers yesterday in regards to who will be its July cover star, and we can now reveal that it will in fact be none other than Mr David Beckham. All by himself! How does that sound?

“David Beckham is a national hero, so we saw an opportunity to shoot a celebratory cover to support an historical and patriotic year,” Elle Editor-in-Chief Lorraine Candy said. ‘He is an icon and Elle is known for featuring icons on its cover.

“This is a first for us on the newsstand and I believe he is loved by men and women alike. Anyway, who doesn’t want to see a picture of one of the world’s most handsome men on the front cover of a magazine? It will be a collector’s issue.”

We agree with every single word! There’s something quite historic and fitting about having David Beckham go it alone just in time for the Olympics. What do you guys think?

If you want to get involved in this little piece of history, tweet a question to @ElleUK  for a chance to have it answered by the main man himself!
