HAMPSHIRE glamour model Lucy Pinder has been lined-up to make her acting debut next year in top BBC 1 series Hotel Babylon.

The 23-year-old stunner, who was discovered by accident in 2003 sunbathing on a Bournemouth beach, will star alongside her modelling friend Michelle Marsh, 24.

The two models will show there's more to them than just their looks when they play two guests who get chatted up by one of the hotel's staff.

The popular BBC drama is entering its third series and hosts a number of well known actors and actresses including Dexter Fletcher, and Tamzin Outhwaite.

Lucy, a Saints fan, is famous for never posing topless in any magazine or paper until earlier this year, said she was looking forward to trying her hand at acting.
