SIR Mick Jagger's daughter LIZZIE has been ordered to pile on weight or face losing her $1.8 million (GBP1 million)-a-year modelling contract with cosmetics giant LANCOME.

The 20-year-old daughter of the Rolling Stones frontman and Texan supermodel Jerry Hall has been warned that actress AISHWARYA RAI - who recently signed to parent company L'OREAL - is in line to replace her if she fails to add flesh to her slender frame.

Jagger, who comes under pressure three years into her eight-year contract, has recently dropped almost a dress size, raising concerns over her well being.

A Lancome spokesperson comments, "We've asked her to put some weight on. We think she's taking it on board and doing something about it. We very much hope so as she has been a big success for us.

"If she doesn't listen, though, we will look at bringing someone else in and Aishwarya Rai is one name that has been mentioned as she has recently been signed to the company."

Jagger vehemently denies she's suffering from an eating disorder, insisting her svelte physique is a side-effect of her fast metabolism: "I have the opposite problem to most models who come under pressure to lose weight. I'm too skinny and I keep being told that I should put weight on. But whatever I eat, I still can't. I've inherited my dad's metabolism - no fat whatsoever."
