Sexy singer Britney Spears is gearing up for a surprise career change - as a reality TV star.

Representatives for the 22-year-old TOXIC singer are reportedly shopping a reality series to TV bosses called ONTOURAGE, featuring backstage footage of her life on tour.

The show - described as a cross between MTV's The Real World and 1991's Madonna: TRUTH OR DARE - would follow the lives of Spears and her dancers on the upcoming European leg of her ONYX HOTEL TOUR.

Spears is expected to narrate and even wield a digital camera to chronicle her adventures with her dancers, bodyguards and managers from the tour bus to the stage.

The six-week shoot would produce six episodes which Spears' team hope to have on the air as early as the summer (04).

The TV network which lands the deal will have to act fast - the European leg of Spears' tour kicks off in London on 27 April (04).

Representatives for Spears have yet to comment.
