Brooklyn Beckham inspired by Sir David Attenborough to help save planet

Brooklyn Beckham has been inspired to try his hand at making a series of climate change documentaries after working with Sir David Attenborough.

The 21-year-old photographer is interviewing climate change campaigners on his Instagram, giving them a platform to reach his 12million followers.

Brooklyn said he realised that was the best way to use his fame to help the situation, which he described as ‘freaking a lot of people out’.

Posh and Becks’s eldest added: ‘It’s really made me want to help.’

He has teamed up with a videographer friend to create the online interviews for global charity Together Band.

Brooklyn’s first chat was with climate campaigner Noga Levy-Rapoport, 18.

‘Climate change is real and is causing irreversible damage to our planet,’ he said. ‘My job, and what I’m trying to do, is to give a platform to people like Noga.’

And before trolls questioned his credentials, his pal said of their mini film: ‘I do video. B does photography. We’re not trying to pretend that we know everything about these issues and how we’re going to solve climate change.’

Brooklyn became involved in the subject last year, during his stint as an assistant on Sir David’s Our Planet series for Netflix. He flew to the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya to work on the episode From Deserts To Grasslands, tracking five cheetahs with the Worldwide Fund For Nature.

Brooklyn posted afterwards: ‘I had an incredible time hanging out with the film crew and @WWF team gaining a unique insight into our planet’s wildlife and why it’s so important that we protect them.’

In the meantime, he has flown to New York for some retail therapy, meaning he missed his mum’s London Fashion Week show. Brooklyn was pictured hitting the shops in a black hoodie with the logo ‘Marlon Brando’.

Resilient Maya looks to the fuchsia

Maya Jama sometimes surprises herself with her ability to navigate pain after suffering trauma as a youngster.

The TV siren had a rocky upbringing with her father jailed when she was three. And when she was 16, Maya’s boyfriend was shot dead outside a pub.

During the last 12 months, the 26-year-old presenter has been dealing with the end of her four-year romance with grime star Stormzy. ‘I definitely think I’m resilient,’ she said.

‘Sometimes I surprise myself, because there’s been a few times… I feel like, “Oh my God, this is the end of the world” — and then it’s not the end of the world. And then I’m back.’

Currently single and in a sweet spot, Maya is ruffling any future boyfriend’s feathers by posing in a stunning fuchsia gown and matching hat for Wonderland magazine.

Stormzy’s song about her, Lessons, also left her unfazed. She shrugged recently: ‘I feel that going out with an artist, you kind of sign an invisible contract where it’s like, “This is this, it’s everybody’s business”.’

Hollywood celeb? It’s a yo-ho-no for Johnny

Whatever you do, don’t label Johnny Depp a ‘Hollywood celebrity’.

After details of his showbiz lifestyle were dragged through London’s High Court, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star said he found that description gross.

‘Never consider yourself a Hollywood celebrity, that’s death and grotesque,’ said Depp, 57, as he tried to get the focus off his ugly divorce from Amber Heard and back to his films. ‘I’ve always been drawn to people who are diligent in remaining themselves.’

He was speaking at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain, where he is a producer on Crock Of Gold: A Few Rounds With Shane MacGowan. Depp agreed to go as the event does not attract ‘Hollywood types’.

Lew keeps it reality if next album flops

Lewis Capaldi might become a star of reality TV if his second album tanks.

The hilarious singer has been beavering away on his follow-up to the best-selling Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent at his parents’ place in Scotland during lockdown.

But, just in case, the Someone You Loved singer has a plan B.

‘If the music dries up, I’ll do anything,’ said Lew, whose ex Paige Turley won Love Island. ‘I’ll go on Fear Factor, is that still a show?

‘I’ll do all the reality TV. You’ll see me on The Bachelor, or something like that. But, until then, I think I’ll stick with the music.’

The 23-year-old Brit winner is reminded of his success every time he goes to the loo, because that’s where he keeps his trophies.

‘I like the thought that people go to the toilet and while they’re on the toilet, they go, “Wow, this guy is pretty successful”,’ he said.
