Soccer superstar David Beckham is hoping he'll receive a frying pan for Christmas this year (06). The Real Madrid ace and multi-millionaire is happiest cooking up treats in the kitchen - and he wants his wife Victoria Beckham to give him a simple seasonal gift. He says, "I learned to cook at 17 when I was living alone in Manchester. I lived alone for five years and I did my own cooking. "I love cooking now for my wife, children, family and friends so I'd love it if they bought me some saucepans or a frying pan."
