David and Victoria Beckham to spend the weekend with Gordon Brown

David Beckham, Victoria BeckhamDavid and Victoria Beckham are set to spend a long weekend with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his wife, Sarah at their country mansion, it has been revealed.

The invitation to Chequers, the Browns' official country mansion is a thank you for the couple's charity work with Sarah, 47.

A pal of Victoria, 33, revealed: "Sarah does a lot of charity work and has previously called on Victoria to help. They get on well and Sarah knows Victoria and David can be relied on to send signed books or jeans or give time if possible.

"They don't seem likely friends but the Browns have a lot of time for the Beckhams.

"They are bound to have a great weekend together at Chequers."

Victoria's Spice Girl pal Geri Halliwell is among the celebs who visited Chequers when Tony Blair was PM.

Other guests at the Buckinghamshire mansion have included Charlotte Church, Chris Evans, Richard Madeley and Des O'Connor.

A Downing Street insider said: "Gordon has made it clear he isn't interested in using Chequers for schmoozing with celebs. You won't see a host of C-List stars traipsing down there at his behest.

"But David and Victoria have done some incredible work for cystic fibrosis charities, a cause very close to the Browns' hearts, and the bond has grown.

"They are now very good friends and an invite to Chequers was a natural step."
