Sexy blonde American MTV presenter HILARIE (corr) BURTON is desperate to land a role in the next DARKNESS video.

Burton, who also stars in teenage TV soap One Tree Hill, is a huge fan of the British group, and wants to become their new video girl - just like TAWNY KITAEN became a staple of Whitesnake's steamy promos.

Burton says, "I'm super into The Darkness. It's like Queen, slash, early David Bowie, slash, a little Rod Stewart. It's just fun.

"I wanna be their video girl so bad. I'm petitioning. Remember Tawny Kitaen in a little Whitesnake action and doing cartwheels on the hood of the car? I want to be The Darkness' video girl."
