[1] You may think you're cool Brooklyn.. but I'm Roylety; TV HIT IS BACK WITH A TRENDY BABY.

TOGGED out in a headscarf and leather jacket, this latest addition to TV's Royle Family matches Brooklyn Beckham in the trendy baby stakes.

The similarities between the new arrival in the BBC comedy and soccer ace David Beckham's son do not end with their fashionable headgear.

Both have links with Manchester - the series is set there while Beckham Senior plays for United.

And the screen son of actress Caroline Aherne - who plays Denise Best - also shares the same first name as the bandanna-wearing footballer.

But while Brooklyn's dad can claim to be king of Old Trafford and his Spice Girl mum Victoria a queen of the pop world, baby Best is heir to an armchair rather than a throne.

The tot makes his debut when the couch potatoes return in a new run at 9.30pm on BBC1 a week on Monday.

Denise looks as trendy as her son in the first show, sporting hair extensions and a glamorous wardrobe.

It's all too much for grand-dad Jim Royle (Ricky Tomlinson). When she and husband Dave walk in he takes one look at her new clobber and quips: "Christ, it's Posh and Becks."

But the youngster soon proves he is a true Royle - by breaking wind.

Beaming Jim responds: "That's my boy."
