Kelly to strip off for cabaret show

Kelly Brook is to strip on stage after joining the cast of saucy nude revue show Crazy Horse.

The actress and glamour girl will join the production for a one-week stint as a guest performer early next month.

Dancers from the famed Paris Crazy Horse cabaret have been performing in London since last month with a residency for a show called Forever Crazy.

Now Kelly will join the show - being staged in a temporary venue on the South Bank - from November 1, after being trained by former Crazy Horse performer Iota Theoreme, who is the show manager.

The 32-year-old will perform a segment called Lecon d'Erotisme, a key part of the show, and will also appear as a character called Miss Bisou throughout the show.

She lined up with her co-stars from the show today but Kelly and the dancers remained far more modestly dressed than they will be on stage as they posed for photos.

Kelly said she was "ecstatic" to be making an appearance and admitted she was "sometimes" more comfortable the less clothes she had on.

She said: "I think with a show like Crazy Horse it lends itself to that, it is a show with semi-naked women, but there's a lot of dance and lighting and incredible music, and it's very French so you can kind of get away with it. It's a bit more sophisticated than other things I've done in the past."

It will not be the first time she has undressed on stage. She took a role as a lap dancer in the play Eye Contact in 2000 performing at London's Riverside Theatre in just a thong and heels. She also disrobed in a production of Calendar Girls and most recently stripped to her underwear in Keith Lemon: The Movie.

Others who have taken guest roles with the Crazy Horse girls over the years include Dita Von Teese and Pamela Anderson. Kelly will appear in Forever Crazy until November 8.
