David Beckham could appear on Big Brother

TV bosses are lining up AC Milan new boy David Beckham for a guest appearance on Italy's Big Brother.

Beckham, 33, arrived in Italy on Saturday along with wife Victoria, 34, for a medical and to check out accommodation for his three-month loan.

In Italy footballers regularly appear on lifestyle and variety programmes and as AC Milan is owned by Prime Minister and media mogul Silvio Berlusconi, Beckham will also have to do a turn on one of his Mediaset channels.

TV insiders said the most likely programme would be Grande Fratello or Big Brother as it is the most popular show in the country and the eighth series is due to start shortly.

The former Manchester United player arrived in Milan on a private jet with Victoria and the couple was chauffeur-driven from Malpensa airport in separate cars.

Dressed in a blue jumper, jeans, mirrored sunglasses and a scarf against the chill Beckham smiled and waved at the small group of fans who had gathered to welcome him.

He told AC Milan TV: "I am honoured to be here and to play for one of the most successful clubs in the world. I am overcome, very overcome, I want to train hard and be part of the team.

"I want to enjoy myself in these few months. I have played for the biggest club in England, the biggest club in Spain and now I want to play for the biggest club in Italy.

"There are so many famous players here, it is an incredible club."

During his stay in Italy Beckham will be eligible for ten Serie A matches as well as two UEFA games, should AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti decide to name him to the European squad.

Beckham will begin training with his new teammates on December 29 and hopes to be on the field for Milan's first 2009 Serie A match, January 11, away against AS Roma.
