JULIA ROBERTS has been unveiled as the new face of Givenchy.

The Pretty Woman star was hand-picked to promote the spring 2015 campaign by creative director Riccardo Tisci, who called her “an icon”.

The 47-year-old’s first shots for the French fashion house are black and white and show her posing in a boyish suit, apparently bare-faced.

Julia told Yahoo Style of becoming a model in her late 40s: “My sister and I were actually just on the phone, and we were laughing so hard. She goes, ‘How are you suddenly turned into a supermodel? You’re almost 50.’

“It’s funny.”

JIMMY BULLARD has sprung one final prank on EDWINA CURRIE by standing in for her hunky masseuse.

The I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! camp joker stripped down to a tiny pair of trunks to surprise Edwina, who finished fourth in the jungle show.

Then while she was face down on the massage bench in her hotel room, he snuck in and unbeknown to her took over from the handsome masseuse who had begun her treatment.

Former footballer Jimmy had the last laugh once again when a shocked Edwina realised that her relaxation time had been rudely interrupted.

KATE BECKINSALE and JEREMY PIVEN are to announce the nominees for the Golden Globe Awards.

The Underworld actress and the Entourage star will be joined by The Truman Show actor PETER KRAUSE and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol’s PAULA PATTON to reveal the nods on December 11, said the Hollywood Reporter.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Theo Kingma, Dick Clark Productions’ executive producer Barry Adelman and Miss Golden Globe Greer Grammer - the daughter of Frasier star KELSEY GRAMMER - will also attend the early morning event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in LA.

The makers of The Great British Bake Off are starting a new TV search, this time for the best amateur potters that the nation has to offer.

Britain’s Best Potter will air on BBC Two and is currently on the hunt for contestants, according to a call for participants tweeted by craft centre the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.

The notice asks: “Do you live and breathe pottery? Fancy your chances in a nationwide talent search?”

It continues: “We’re scouring the country for experienced amateurs to early career potters, who want to share their passion with the nation.”

The competition is looking for those who are also comfortable with being filmed and has set an application deadline of January 4.
