Australian pop star Holly Valance has signed a money-spinning deal to become the face of soft drinks giants PEPSI in Australia.

The move, which will earn her $240,000 (GBP150,000), comes at a good time for the KISS KISS singer - last week (ends3OCT03) she lost a court battle with her former manager which looks set to leave her out of pocket.

The deal could also prove a timely boost for Valance's career - if the ads she stars in are successful down under, they could be extended to Asia.
