Ramsay to cook Christmas Day feast for Beckhams

Gordon Ramsay will cook for David and Victoria Beckham on Christmas Day.

The Michelin-starred chef will be taking his wife Tana and four children to the couple’s ‘Beckingham Palace’ mansion in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire, on December 25 and although he will be cooking he wants Victoria - whose nickname is ‘Posh’ - to help.

He said: "The secret about cooking with families together is delegating, so we’ll all be doing something I’m sure. Whether it’s Victoria doing the roast or David carving the turkey or Tana making the sauce or me doing the Christmas pudding, we’ll all be helping each other.”

The 43-year-old TV chef also revealed the two couples, who are all great friends, may even indulge in a game of naked Twister once all the kids are in bed.

He joked to Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper: "We’ll travel to David and Victoria’s have a late lunch and then the kids will be ready for bed by 6.30-7pm. It will be fantastic. And then we can all start playing naked Twister at 8pm.”
