Superstar DJ Fatboy Slim is increasing the spice in his ailing marriage - with a super-sexy new hot tub for him and his wife to frolic in.

The PRAISE YOU music maker, real name NORMAN COOK, had a rocky time when his wife, British TV babe Zoe Ball, admitted to an affair with another DJ earlier this year (03).

But the couple patched up their differences and are giving their relationship another try - and the luxurious new addition should help keep their passion alive.

The $15,000 (GBP10,000) hot tub, on the balcony of their Brighton, England, home, is the latest in a series of playful purchases, including a bar called NORM'S and pole-dancing equipment.

A close friend of the electronic wizard's says, "It's a great party house and the hot tub is its crowning glory. What could be better at the end of the day than sinking into the warm water with a cold beer.

"From the tub you can see all along the coast of Brighton to the pier. It's a fabulous view and he and Zoe love it.

"I think it is big enough for eight people, but I haven't seen it full. It's a top of the range model complete with all sorts of jets and pumps and even a stereo system."
