Kelly Brook told off over phone bills

Kelly Brook says her phone bills are so large she gets the cold shoulder by her manager.

The model-and-television-presenter has enjoyed an incredible upturn in fortunes following her unsuccessful stint fronting British television show The Big Breakfast in 1999. The 31-year-old, famed for her good looks and curvy figure, has been busy in Hollywood working on her blossoming film career.

However travelling back and forth from America to Britain has taken a toll on the star’s finances, mainly through gigantic phone bill charges.

“They vary. I don’t even look at them – they go to my business manager, but sometimes she calls me and says, ‘I think you should see this!’ It’s not so much the calls, it’s the roaming charges! I forget to switch it off,” she said.

Despite these extra charges, Kelly’s hectic lifestyle means she always needs a phone on her. Recently chosen as the face of the new LG handset, Kelly confirms she now has well-known names in her phonebook though she wouldn’t consider them real friends.

“I have lots: Simon Cowell, Dizzee Rascal, Kevin Spacey. I call them SBCs – showbiz chums. You see them at events and I know them to say hello to but I don’t hang out with them,” she joked.
