For most of us regular people, meeting our celebrity idols in real life is a massive deal. We are not cool about it. But what happens when an actual celebrity meets their own icon? Well, if David Beckham is anything to go by, they're just as starstruck as the rest of us, and they definitely take a selfie.

Earlier today Beckham posted a picture of himself and actor John Bradley, who plays Samwell Tarly Game Of Thrones.

Beckham captioned the photo: "This man is a maester, he knows things... Was tempted to ask for a little clue into what's next but was to star struck #gameofthrones."

As a hardcore Game of Thrones fan, Beckham got himself into hot water with his Instagram followers (opens in new tab) and fellow watchers recently when he kept posting spoilers from the latest series on Instagram. Not cool David.

Here's to a David and Daenerys selfie next.
