Michael Sheen has revealed how former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham once called security on him - because she thought he was trying to abduct his own daughter.

Speaking on the Graham Norton Show, the Good Omens actor told the tale of how he once went to pick up his daughter Lily Mo, now 20, from an ice-skating lesson in Los Angeles. Lily Mo's mother is The Widow actor Kate Beckinsale.

Sheen explains that Victoria and David Beckham were also at the ice rink, and failed to recognise him, as he looked "quite hirsute" at the time.

He says: "I was in LA and went to pick her up from an ice skating lesson. When I got there the Beckhams were there checking out the rink for lessons.

"I was quite hirsute then and when Posh saw me she called security thinking I was a tramp trying to abduct my daughter!"

Sheen and Lily Mo's mother Beckinsale were in a relationship from 1995 to 2003.

Sheen appears on the Graham Norton Show alongside former Doctor Who David Tennant, his co-star in the TV series Good Omens.

The Amazon Prime series is based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Tennant plays the demon Crowley while Sheen is the angel Aziraphale.

The novel and series follow their characters, who have become friends over the millennia they've worked together among humans.

They try to prevent the coming of the Anti-Christ when their respective bosses start the apocalypse.

Sheen says he was originally supposed to play Tennant's more villainous character.

He explains: "When the series became a possibility Neil (Gaiman) assumed I would want to play the demon, but when I read a very early version of the script I thought, 'I can't do that, I'm not good enough. I'm better for the angel part, that suits me'.

"We had a very awkward dinner and he finally asked how I would feel about playing the good character and David the demon. It was perfect."
