Soccer star David Beckham has built his own church in the grounds of his British home - without permission.

Builders have been at the Real Madrid footballer's mansion for the past three months working on the 20-seat church at the mansion he shares with wife VICTORIA.

However, the popular couple neglected to tell the local planning authorities, and now officials are "investigating" the holy building.

GLYN DAY, East Hertfordshire District Council Enforcement Officer, says, "There have been no applications made.

"They have to abide by the law like anybody else. We'll be investigating."
