David Beckham has whisked his wife Victoria off on a romantic break to 'Thunderbirds' Tracy Island to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary
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 (04.07.09) - 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 tomorrow (07.07.09) and be reunited with their sons who have been staying with Victoria's parents in the South of France.
