Elizabeth Hurley is set for a new TV gig - on Gossip Girl.

The supermodel-turned-actress will play Diana Payne, described as "a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with", who would make her mark on the hit series' conniving characters including the mysterious Gossip Girl herself in the upcoming fifth season.

"Elizabeth's sense of humour, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her," the show's executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran told TVLine.

Liz - who has her own beachwear collection - had been set to appear as villainess Veronica Cale in a Wonder Woman reboot, but US network NBC decided not to pick up the show.

The 46-year-old, whose big screen efforts have not received critical acclaim, will have a recurring appearance in Gossip Girl.

Joining a discussion group will be lots of fun. You'll enjoy brainstorming with fellow visionaries. The idea for a community improvement project is worth developing. You and your neighbours will benefit from a beautiful gathering spot. It's easy to feel alienated in this technological age. Create a space where you can escape computers, telephones and artificial lighting. Don't be surprised when you feel compelled to visit this sanctuary every day. Spending time outdoors will make you more relaxed and productive.More
