Pint-sized pop star Lily Allen is to make her acting debut alongside Russell Brand and Stephen Fry in a spoof movie of Jane Austen's classic novel PRIDE & PREJUDICE.

Mouthy Lily will play the role of giggling youngster Lydia Bennet, the sister of the novel's heroine Elizabeth Bennet.

The LDN singer, who will be swapping trainers and gold earrings for a low-cut bodice and floral dress, will be playing the love interest of Brand in the movie.

Ridiculously-haired Brand is set to play the slippery George Wickham, while Fry is stepping into the role of Mr Bennet.

One source told the Sun that Lily "was sent the script and just loved it" and is due to start shooting on the movie in the spring.

Lily has recently been concentrating on her body image since splitting from long-term boyfriend SEB CHEW, trying to lose weight and ditch her fuller figure.

She told BBC Radio One: "I never wanted to be a role model. That was a label that was thrust upon me.

"I've just lost what I call my hip-t*ts."
