Celebrity supercouple DAVID and Victoria Beckham celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary today (4JUL04) by renewing their wedding vows in a top-secret ceremony in Morocco.

According to reports in British newspaper the SUNDAY MIRROR, the pair hope that the blessing will put their troubled marriage back on track, which was rocked earlier this year by allegations David had an affair with his personal assistant Rebecca Loos.

A close friend of the family says. "David and Victoria Beckham are real people and they have been through the mill. They needed to do something to put their romance back on track and this was perfect.

"They believe the best way to heal the rifts are to be alone and together in paradise. What better way to celebrate their anniversary than by renewing their wedding vows."

The couple opted for a traditional Christian ceremony in the grounds of a hotel in the exclusive Amanjena resort on the outskirts of Marrakesh.

A hotel source says "It was a special instruction. They wanted to know if our papa (the Moroccan term for priest) would be available on Sunday and we duly booked him."

The Beckhams have been making the most of their two-week break and have been spotted shopping at a local street market and an art gallery
