Celebrity couple VICTORIA and David Beckham have returned to SIR ELTON JOHN's French Riviera home for a second "unofficial" honeymoon.

The soccer hunk and pop star first visited John's palatial house five years ago (99) - and have returned there for a romantic getaway where they "look happier than they have in years".

A source says, "It's like a second honeymoon.

"They have been here many times since they first married and they are always relaxed here."

On Tuesday night (06JUL04) the former SPICE GIRL and REAL MADRID soccer star returned from a holiday in Marrakech, Morocco to stay at John's pad with their children ROMEO and Brooklyn.

The source adds, "Morocco was great, but they didn't feel they could relax as much as they would have liked.

"And although they loved just being together, they couldn't wait to see Brooklyn and Romeo again."
