Lily Allen has landed her own television show on BBC3 and is not going to be the next model of Agent Provocateur.
That Lily Allen has landed her own TV show, it's true and has been confirmed. But don't trust the say on the block that mentioned her as the new model to front the next Agent Provocateur ad campaign.
A singer-songwriter that has become talk of the town, more often because of her controversial behavior and not for her music work, Allen has been given her own TV show by BBC3 who reportedly plans on making her one of the corporation's key personalities.
The show, to be named "Lily Allen and Friends," will be based on the social networking site that helped her launched her music career and will feature a mix of chat and music, with her fans will be at the heart of the program.
But how? Viewers will be invited to become Lily's virtual friends online and will then have a chance to shape the show; suggesting ideas, choosing bands to perform and putting questions to guests. Each week some will be chosen to make up the studio audience.
While the BBC bosses believe Lili has what it takes to be a major TV star, Lily herself fells "so excited that BBC3 are giving me this chance. It's something I intend to have lots of fun with and I have some great ideas for the show. Next year is going to be a brilliant year."
"Lily Allen And Friends," which will be made by Princess Productions, the company behind Channel 4's Friday Night Project, is scheduled to be kicked off by next spring.
In other Lily news, report on her being tapped as the new model for high profile lingerie line Agent Provocateur has been slammed by the company who just now unveiled their new face, French actress Vahina Giocante.
Vahina has been announced as the star in the third installment of "The Adventures of Miss AP," replacing the current AP face Catherine Bailey, which will be made public January next year.
