DAVID Beckham's childhood home has been withdrawn from auction after failing to attract any bids above the £215,000 guide price.

The owners were hoping the effect of Beckham's fame would mean the modest three-bedroom terraced house in Norman Road, Leytonstone, could fetch upwards of £500,000.

But the property failed to attract the eye of bargain-hungry Beckham enthusiasts and they decided to pull out.

Estate agent Colin Evans, who initially told the owners about their home's former occupant, has said he still believes a buyer can be found.

He added his faith in "brand Beckham" is "100 per cent still" and believes he can sell the house for double its market value or more.

Mr Evans said: "I've received a call from someone in Monaco with an offer for Mr Mahmood, the owner, of £750,000.

"I rang him to tell him we had to travel to Paris to complete the deal but he said he was quite happy to go ahead with the auction."

Mr Evans claims the mystery bidder from Monaco is still interested and the deal may still go ahead.

The house was originally listed on a website for £850,000 and Mr Evans has previously claimed a potential buyer made an offer of £1million.

The house was due to be sold by auctioneers Savills.
