Thunderous Beckham anniversary

2009-07-06 20:06

Los Angeles - David Beckham has hired Thunderbirds' "Tracy Island" for his tenth wedding anniversary to wife Victoria.

The soccer star has reportedly splashed out $100 000 to ensure he and the former Spice Girl are the only people on the idyllic North Island in the Seychelles - which featured in the 2004 film adaptation of the puppet TV series Thunderbirds, about a technically advanced heroic organisation known as International Rescue.

A source said: "David and Victoria appear so in love. They have gone on lots of romantic walks, holding hands like a couple of newlyweds."

The 34-year-old sportsman has hired a private chef and a team of 20 staff members - including a top security team - to look after Victoria and himself during their stay in the Indian Ocean tropical paradise and has arranged for the use of a helicopter and powerboat.

The source added to Britain's The Sun newspaper: "This place is the best and so secluded. The security makes it like a spy base."

The couple - who celebrated their anniversary on Saturday - spent the evening drinking vintage French wine which reportedly cost $500 a bottle.

David and 35-year-old Victoria - who have three sons together, Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, six, and four-year-old Cruz - married at Dublin's Luttrellstown Castle on July 4 1999.

They are expected to return to the UK on Tuesday and be reunited with their sons who have been staying with Victoria's parents in the South of France.
