Gordon Ramsay taught David Beckham's son how to cook.

The celebrity chef is close friends with the retired soccer star and his fashion designer wife Victoria so was happy to give their eldest child, 16-year-old Brooklyn, some culinary tips.

Brooklyn said: ''I actually really enjoy cooking. Gordon Ramsay taught me how to do a great beef wellington.''

Brooklyn is close friends with Gordon's son Jack, 16, as well as the offspring of another of his dad's pals, director Guy Ritchie's 15-year-old son Rocco.

He told Miss Vogue: ''I've changed schools quite a few times but I have some close friends that have known me since I was very young, nothing ever changes with them.

''I have a handful of really close friends, but in particular I'd say Jack Ramsay and Rocco Ritchie.

''I love going to football matches, the skate park and music festivals [with my friends]. I also like to box.''

Though Brooklyn admits it is frustrating having to be accompanied by security wherever he goes, there are advantages to having famous parents.

He said: ''The downside is I have to have security with me most places I go, the upside is I'm fortunate to get backstage passes to music festivals and gigs.''
