Gordon Ramsay's gift for Beckhams

David and Victoria Beckham will receive a special gift from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay this year.

The Beckhams and the Ramsays are close friends and the two families often spend Christmas day together.

However, this year Gordon is committed to a live TV cook-along so the families will be unable to enjoy their annual celebration.

The Michelin-starred chef has therefore prepared a hand-written guide for David and Victoria to make up for his absence.

A source told The Mirror: "He and David have been talking about what they are going to do without him ­ so Gordon has drawn up a few pointers for them and it's gone down a storm."

While the Beckhams are excited about Gordon¹s gift, they will definitely miss sharing Christmas lunch with the Ramsays.

"It's really sad that the two families can't spend Christmas together this year, not least because having Gordon oversee things in the kitchen always resulted in an incredible meal," the source added.

"There was talk of Gordon, Tana and their kids being able to make it but it will be just too tight timings-wise. It's a shame as both families get on famously. Still, Gordon has given them some pointers so they will be in good hands."

David and Victoria will celebrate Christmas at their countryside home in England this year which will be new-born baby Harper's first.
