A number of celebs, including Beckham, Ant & Dec and Gary Lineker, were among more than 1,000 who participated in the Ingenious scheme to fund the British film industry, which a judge has declared was illegal in terms of tax relief.
They are among more than 1,000 people who invested in the Ingenious film financing scheme in order to gain tax relief. The scheme, which helped produce massive movies such as Avatar, qualified for tax breaks designed to boost the British film industry.
However, HMRC contended that the scheme relied on artificial losses from the movies concerned, and that meant that Ingenious was not a legitimate investment opportunity but a tax avoidance vehicle.

Arthur might have an extraordinary destiny, but after his birthright was taken from him at a young age, he has grown up an agent of the streets of Londonium and now the idea that he has royal blood is almost laughable. That is until he manages to unsheath the mighty sword of Excalibur from a stone; a feat that can only be achieved be he who is worthy of the throne. This forces him to make a choice, he can ignore the destiny that is pressing in around him or he can seize it once and for all. He joins the kingdom's resistance and it's there he meets the beautiful Guinevere who encourages him to learn of the power that he wields and defeat the tyrannous Vortigern, avenging his parents and ending his rule for good.

I did his first tattoo and a lot of them since, until the big one when he was here with [ex-girlfriend] Taylor Swift last year. I don't know why he's gone somewhere else now. I didn't do the rose. He didn't even get it here at the parlour. I don't know who did it.''

Both of the couple created a stir of their own as screaming fans clamoured to catch a glimpse of Victoria as the 39 year-old posed outside luxury retailer Lane Crawford whilst David attended a Chinese Super League football match at the Shanghai Shenxin Football Club in an appearance that sparked a stampede.
According to Sky News, "three police officers, two security guards and two students were hurt in the crash outside the arena at Tongji University" as news spread around that Beckham would arrive to meet members of the university's football team in Shanghai. Beckham was unable to reach the pitch through the teeming hoardes, and the event had to be reportedly cancelled.
Victoria in particular has created news worldwide after pictures from Brand Beckham's tour have shown several shots of the former Spice Girl smiling - an occurrence known to be rare in front of the pap's lens.

The ex-footballer and movie star went to the game with their families in tow, and unfortunately Becks had eyes for someone other than Tom
David Beckham and Tom Cruise have seemingly been best buddies ever since the newly retired football superstar moved to the MLS to join LA Galaxy all those years ago, and it seems that their friendship has stood the test of time as the pair were spotted out on a man-date with their kids at the recent Los Angeles Kings vs San Jose Sharks NHL game.
The pair almost managed to get through the whole game without being spotted too, but the ever-watchful eye of the kiss-cam managed to catch Becks as he was sat with his daughter, Harper, in the VIP stands. Becks gave his daughter a smooch on the side of the head as the camera panned out to reveal that not only was Becks and his daughter there, but he was there with his wife Victoria Beckham and three sons as well as Cruise and his son, Connor.
The game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday (May 28) may have ended in victory for LA, but the talking point after the game was definitely the appearance from Becks and Harper on the kiss cam rather than anything sports-related.
Victoria Beckham reportedly wants another baby, following David's move to Paris.
Could a fifth Beckham baby be on the way? It's been just 18 months since Victoria and David Beckham welcomed their first daughter Harper into the brood, though according to insiders at London Fashion Week, Victoria has been openly discussing the possibility of having a fifth Beckham baby!
The fashion designer and football star also have three sons, Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, and Cruz, 7, though it appears David's recent move to Paris Saint-Germain has paved the way for another baby. A source told Closer magazine: "(Victoria) was making cheeky comments to everyone at Fashion Week who congratulated her about David's Paris move and asked her if she's planning on opening a Paris boutique.She quipped, 'Maybe - and maybe we'll get a Paris baby, too!' She's besotted with Harper and says she'd love another girl." The timing certainly works, with Victoria and David now settled in Europe for the foreseeable future, though the 37-year-old sports star is thought to be reluctant to have another baby. An insider explained: "David's been doing most of the work with the boys over the past few weeks, while Victoria prepared for New York Fashion Week, and although he loves every moment he spends with them, he'd like some time to unwind. He's not sure he can handle another one in nappies and sleepless nights."
Speaking on Jonathan Ross' ITV1 chat show last year, David declared, "We might have one more or two more, you never know. We're not thinking about it yet, but if it happens, great."

We've all had that moment; looking at photos of our favourite celebs and then jumping out of our seats screaming, 'He's HOW old?!' Well, we've been doing a lot of that here at ContactMusic.

We've had a bit of a trawl through Youtube and, whilst we'd never go as far as to call ourselves the authority on Beckham ads (though we'd certainly insinuate it) here are five that we reckon are among his most memorable.

A semi-naked skimpy Beckham ad will never fail to set pulses racing, but in the new H&M ad, directed by Guy Ritchie, this time around it's the footballer's turn to get his own heart racing. In the ad he's seen chasing a car with his three boys riding in the back, after having had his robe get stuck in the door of the car and get ripped away. Racing through his neighbour's back gardens and onto a road, he sees the car turn a corner. What a shame, Beckham has to stay in his H&M khaki pants.
Ritchie uses his background in action movies to create a dynamic and fast paced 'short film' which has a clear narrative and makes best use of the beautifully sunny surroundings of LA, as well as all its beautiful people.
"David is the perfect leading man," the director told Today. "For me, this felt like more than a campaign - it was like directing a short film."

It's a big day for fans of David Beckham. It's a huge day for fans of David Beckham's body. Hot on the heels of the confirmation that the British footballer will sign for French side Paris-Saint Germain, Beckham's latest ad for his bodywear range at H&M has emerged online. Directed by Guy Ritchie, the sleek clip sees Beckham running through Los Angeles in his briefs and, well, not much else.
Beckham launched a successful line of undergarments and loungewear in partnership with H&M a year ago and featured in a Super Bowl commercial that saw him in a tank top and boxers. In the new Guy Ritchie commercial, Beckham is seen waving off his kids to school in a dressing gown and slippers. But, what's this? Oh no! He gets his gown trapped in the door of the Land Rover (presumably driven by Victoria), which speeds off to the kids' nearby school. So, instead of phoning his wife and telling her about the funny thing that just happened with the dressing gown and asking her to un-trap it from the door, Beckham decides to sprint after the car, in his boxers!
Romeo Beckham, the second son of David and Victoria Beckham, has signed on with Burberry and models in their spring/summer campaign shot by Mario Testino. The 10-year-old stars alongside label regulars Cara Delevinge and Edie Campbell in the shoot, wearing a shirt, tie, brogues and the signature Burberry trench.
Romeo is the latest member of the fashion-forward family to model or design high-end clothes. David has appeared in countless campaigns over the years, while Victoria is the creative director of her own hugely successful label. During the Spice Girls recent reunion shows, Romeo was seen dancing with an umbrella baring the famous Burberry check. "We had such fun shooting the campaign" said the fashion house's Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, "I think that comes through." The Beckham's decision to allow Romeo to model for the most quintessentially British brand of them all fuels rumors that the pair are ready to move to London.
Beckham has played his last game for the Los Angeles Galaxy and - according to the Evening Standard - Victoria was spotted visiting potential schools for her four children around Knightsbridge. She is also thought to be scouting locations for her first flagship store. David has been continuously linked with British clubs Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur.

The world premier of The Spice Girls musical VIVA Forever took place in London last night, but the group were upstaged as the Beckham family attended in full - minus youngest Harper - to take the glare of the snappers' bulbs away from the remaining members of the Fab Five. Indeed, you'd be hard pressed to find a picture of Victoria Beckham with her old group mates Melanie Chisolm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Brown, the pop star-cum-fashion entrepreneur sticking largely with her husband and sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.
Big Week For Biebs: It's been a rollercoaster seven days for Justin Bieber. First, it was reported that he'd split from long-time girlfriend Selena Gomez, then, he attended the American Music Awards with his mother where he won three awards, and lastly, he met up with his ex-girlfriend to chat about a reconciliation. Keep up Bieber fans!
Crash Landing: Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you've probably heard of Rihanna's controversial 777 tour. Seven gigs, seven cities, seven nights, on a Boeing 777. She invited a ton of journalists along for the ride, and provided the alcohol, though not everything went to plan as RiRi opted to take the partying easy to preserve her voice. However, after all the drama, the sold-out shows seemed to go down pretty well with Rihanna's fans.
Looking Good Lindsay! Is the Lindsay Lohan comeback finally complete? Well, it's been an up-and-down year for the actress, though she's finishing 2012 in true style. Just this week, she appeared at the premiere of her new television move Liz & Dick looking really rather radiant!

David Beckham is celebrating Christmas early, the only way he knows how: by launching a new, lucrative range of undergarments for H&M. Beckham has added to his Bodywear range for H&M UK and we’ve had a peek at the publicity shots – some of which leave very little to the imagination. Brace yourselves, now.
Keen to get shoppers riled with anticipation for the new range, Beckham posted a couple of the photos on his Facebook page and has already garnered 55,000 ‘likes’ on the social networking site. If each of those clicks translated into a sale, the soccer star would be quids in (not that he’s exactly short of a bob or two). We reckon most of his admirers will have been clicking ‘like’ before their eyes had even scrolled down to the clothing, though. After all – why wear a t-shirt when you’re David Beckham and have all those tattoos to show off? Sporting an immaculately coiffured quiff, Beckham shows off some cosy looking jogging bottoms, for lounging around the mansion… sorry, house… in, just lounging around the house and clenching your abs so everyone can check out your muscle definition.

Amid all the controversy that has arisen in response to the appalling video allegedly shown at the newly-wed's wedding last week, it's a pleasure to report that Jessica Biel may not be a Biel for that much longer, opting to legally take her husband's name.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel tied the knot last week in a lavish Italian wedding, with celebrations spanning almost an entire week. To further show her love and loyalty to her singer/actor husband, she has chosen to legally change her name to 'Timberlake', though she will still use 'Biel' professionally, probably to avoid any confusion in the future. She thinks she's 'really won the jackpot of names' by taking on Timberlake, reports Today Entertainment. We doubt that Justin offered to change his name to Biel, but he did pen an original song and perform it as she walked down the aisle.
Most actresses choose to keep their name, these days in line with feminism and all that jazz. However there are a select few that have opted to take on their partner's name. Courtney Cox-Arquette chose to double up after marrying David Arquette (although she's returned to just Cox after their divorce), famously Victoria Beckham took on David Beckham's name (her original surname was 'Adam's, Beckham is a great improvement) and Katy Perry made mistake of taking on Brand during her short lived marriage to Russell Brand. We just hope that Jessica will be able to keep Timberlake for the rest of her life, though, given the stats of the above marriage, 2 out of every three marriages fail.
