Romeo Beckham, son of celebrity couple David and Victoria Beckham, is to play a leading role in Burberry’s Christmas campaign by assuming the role of cupid on the streets of London.

‘From London with love’ will see the 12-year old child actor don Burberry’s trademark check before dancing around the streets to dish out the love bug to couples.
