Soccer star David Beckham is set to co-host next month's (FEB04) SAN REMO music festival in Italy, where his former SPICE GIRL wife VICTORIA is performing.

The Beckhams came up with the idea to appear at the city's festival while at dinner with DOMENICO DOLCE and STEFANO GABBANA in Milan, Italy last week (ends16JAN04).

An insider says, "It was a glitzy dinner party. Naomi Campbell and MILAN footballer CHRISTIAN VIERI were there.

"POSH was asked by Italian TV personality SIMONA VENTURA who is hosting the show, if she'd appear. She then asked David if he'd have time to come too.

"The idea is for David to be one of Simona's handsome male co-presenters, and on the same evening Victoria will sing."
