David Beckham is reportedly planning another business venture with foul-mouthed celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey. Their other joint project -- London's Union Street Cafe -- was flooded with prospective diners when it started welcoming reservations last week.

But the Daily Mirror has photos of the retired football player, his wife Victoria, and his energetic business partner checking work on a building that will supposedly house their next restaurant -- a London eatery featuring the British staple pie and mash.

“In the grand scheme of his business ventures, this is small but it’s the one he’s most excited about," a source told the Mirror.

“He’s a great cook and has learned how to do French and Italian over the years but his favorite is British. He loves a pie.”

The Sun added that Beckham and Ramsay registered the name, "PM (Pie and Mash) Restaurant," with the Intellectual Property Office back in 2010.
