The ITV duo weren’t the only downhearted celeb fans in the stands on Sunday.

David Beckham, 46, bit his lip as he was joined in the VIP box by Kate Moss and her daughter Lila, 18, alongside his children Harper, ten, Cruz, 16, and Tom Cruise. 

David and film star Tom, 59, were seated next to each other and fist bumped when Luke Shaw scored a goal after just two minutes, but the former England star’s hopes of seeing his team claim victory were crushed after the game went to penalties.
