Kelly Brook has joked that she won't be picking up an Academy Award for her next film, Piranha 3-D.

The Strictly Come Dancing star will play Danni Arslow in the 3-D remake of the original horror film, released this summer, alongside Elisabeth Shue, Richard Dreyfuss and Jerry O'Connell.

"It's just a big, fun B-movie, lots of boobs, blood, gore and drama - I don't think I'll be getting any Oscars for it," she said.

"In Piranha, there's lots of cool people. It's about a lot of fish that eat a lot of buff boys and big-boobied girls. It's all set during spring break."

Kelly denied she plans to move to Hollywood but revealed she would like to appear on the big screen more.

"No, but I'd love to do more films. I really enjoy it. I love working in Los Angeles, and I like working on films," she said.

She revealed she was picked for the part by director Alexander Aja - while she was eating.

"I was sitting in a restaurant and the director came up and said, 'I think you'll be right for this movie I'm doing,' and then when I read the script, I thought, 'Oh yeah, thanks, it's not really a compliment'," Kelly added.

:: Piranha 3-D will be released on August 20.
