Victoria Beckham is reportedly sifting through the London property papers in search of a luxurious home in the British capital.

The former SPICE GIRL and her soccer ace husband DAVID are now permanently based in Madrid, Spain - where the sportsman plays for top team REAL MADRID - but are eager to join the likes of trendy celebrities Jude Law and GWYNETH PALTROW in the Primrose Hill and Belsize Park areas on visits back to their homeland.

It would mark the first property the couple - whose marriage has been the subject of frenzied speculation since allegations of David's infidelity - have purchased in London after years living in neighbouring Hertfordshire.

The pair have also viewed plush apartments in Chelsea, south-west London.
