Pop star-turned-actress Jessica Simpson is fast becoming the new Jane Fonda after signing up to launch a treadmill range.

The singer spent six days a week getting her body into the perfect shape for her role as sexy DAISY DUKE in new movie The Dukes of Hazzard and she's so impressed with the results she wants to give fans the chance to get into Duke shape.

So, as well as bringing out a new work-out video with her personal trainer, Simpson is also endorsing a new home treadmill line.

She says, "I have a workout video coming out and now everybody can do the Daisy Duke workout and I have a treadmill line that I'll be selling.

"I hope the film inspires others to really want to get in shape. It's the toughest challenge. It was extra tough for me because I was going to be on a big screen in a bikini.

"For any girl, I think that would put them on the treadmill and doing extra squats. I was in the gym six days a week, two-and-a-half-hours a day with a trainer."
