Danny Cipriani shows off his handling skills as he cavorts in the Caribbean with Kelly Brook

Diving towards the touch with a passion in his eyes not even seen on the rugby field, England international Danny Cipriani is clearly enjoying a very happy New Year.

The 21-year-old put in a spot of body surfing with his girlfriend Kelly Brook on waves swelling just yards from their £1,000-night penthouse apartment in St Lucia.

Strictly Come Dancing star Miss Brook, who knows a thing or two about playing up for the cameras, almost seemed to treat the impromptu arrival of a photographer on the beach as a photo-opportunity as the pair frolicked the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

The pair, who have been dating for four months, certainly seemed to be wrapped in the first flushes of young love, even though Miss Brooke is eight years older and has had a string of failed celebrity relationships.

Miss Brook left little to the imagination in a miniscule floral-print bikini. Her muscular young beau wore more conservative black Bermuda shorts.

Size-eight Miss Brook has spoken breathlessly about how she keeps such a tremendous figure, citing time spent in the bedroom with her boyfriend rather than in the gym as the secret. And it certainly seems to be paying off for her.

Besotted: Danny smiles at his beautiful girlfriend as they frolic in the sea

The couple are among scores of celebrities who have flocked to the coast and islands of the Caribbean for Christmas and New Year.

At the Sandy Lane Hotel in Barbados, all the usual suspects - Simon Cowell, Philip Green and Michael Winner – are prepared for the resort’s unrivalled New Year’s Eve firework display and party.

Cowell has this year foregone the luxury of the hotel, however, in favour of an even more exclusive address – Cove Spring House, a rented estate where he is staying while his own huge estate is built nearby.

The comings and goings in Mustique might lead anyone to believe some kind of bizarre love merry-go-round was going on.

Hugh Grant and his ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley flew out to the island from Britain, though they strangely took different routes on December 10. They were spotted playing happy families with Miss Hurley’s young son Damian at the Cotton House hotel.

It would be more than a week before Liz’s husband Arun Nayar joined the party after he was held up on business.

Then, curiously, none other than Grant’s other ex-lover Jemima Khan was also spotted on a plane bound for the tiny isle on Boxing Day.

All of which of course might be a complete coincidence.

If that is the case, there might be some awkward moments when they do bump into one another on the isle, which is less than two miles long, has just 100 private residences, and only three places to get a drink after dark.

Meanwhile, higher up on the hedonism scale, Amy Winehouse has been thrilling the locals of St Lucia with her topless frolicks in the surf while Lily Allen has been pictured holidaying with her mother in Jamaica.

Daniel Craig has been showing off a slightly softer but no less impressive washboard stomach on the beaches on St Barts. He is joined on the island by Eddie Murphy among other US celebrities.

But some of America’s biggest celebrations tonight are planned in nearby Miami.

Topping the bill at the city’s fashionable South Beach this year is a party thrown by Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan, who is hosting a a colossal drum and bass-themed bash at the exclusive Mansion nightclub with DJ girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

Tickets are a cool £4,000 for a table in the VIP area.

Actor Hugh Jackman – recently hailed the world’s sexiest man - is hosting New Year’s Eve celebrations at the nearby Raleigh boutique hotel.

At the Fontainebleau Hotel, the New Year is welcomed with an impressive line-up of singers, rappers and actors.

P Diddy is headlining at the achingly fashionable LIV nightclub there, while Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine will be crooning poolside. Tickets are £200 each.

Billie Piper has been living it up at another of South Beach’s famously fashionable venues, The Shore Club, alongside new baby Winston James and husband Laurence Fox.

It’s thought the family will ring in the New Year at the hotel’s Skybar, in the company of US actress Kristin Cavallari, Twilight star Kellan Lutz and Sopranos actor Robert Iler. Rapper Pras, of The Fugees, is also set to perform at the oceanfront venue on the big night.

However, Miss Piper’s clan were perhaps a little crestfallen at their choice of hotel last night. The pair were spotted by a team of paparazzi photographers on the first day of their holiday at the Shore Club, after which they have been virtual prisoners in their hotel. Sadly, the hotel itself is hardly conducive to restful times for their baby. The resort is a hedonists’ paradise with dance music blaring into the early hours,

Miss Piper was spotted doing laps of the hotel well after dark with her little son in her arms trying to usher him to sleep.

Other hip-hop heavyweights such as T.I. are heading to the newly-opened Gansevoort South Hotel for its first ever New Year.

Counting down at the rooftop bar will be actress Chloe Sevigny, as well as a smattering of models and rappers.

Party-goers will shell out a £150 entrance fee, and the dress code is Miami Vice Chic.

Hip-hop heavyweights The Roots will entertain the crowd at the Delano Hotel's Florida Room, while soul singer Janelle Monáe will belt out her tunes in a poolside performance.

Over at Privé, the festivities will take on a more relaxed feel with the vocals of multi-platinum singer-songwriter John Legend.

Billie Piper settles into motherhood on relaxing Miami break with baby Winston

Everyone else was swimming, tanning, or absorbed in a good book.

But Billie Piper only had eyes for her sleepy two-month-old son.

The actress spent the afternoon on a Miami beach enjoying baby Winston.

Miss Piper, 26, and husband Laurence Fox, 30, have been holidaying in the U.S. ahead of their first wedding anniversary on New Year's Eve.

An onlooker said: 'She looked relaxed, content and just generally very happy. Billie clearly adores her son.'

The pair are staying at the prestigious Shore Club hotel in Miami Beach.

But the couple shared equally their parenting roles.

Mr Fox was very hands on changing nappies on the beach and taking their baby into sea.

Winston has only been seen a handful of times in public since he was born after a gruelling 26 hour labour by Caesarean section at the private Portland Hospital in London on October 21.

But despite yesterday's scenes Billie's stay surely won't be all about the family.

The hotel is described as 'party central' at this time of year, charging a minimum of £450 a night. On New year's Eve it will see US rap mogul P Diddy will host one of the biggest parties in America.

All day yesterday he entertained his guests by sending fleets of bi-planes soaring above with a picture of him on a banner and the words 'I Am The King'.

Intriguingly however, Miss Piper has given fellow celebrity hotel guest Charlotte Church a wide berth.

Miss Church was seen yesterday parading around the Shore Club with a gaggle of girlfriends and without her partner, rugby star Gavin Hensen, or their children.

Billie, the star of ITV's Secret Diary Of A Call Girl has said she plans to take a break from acting to concentrate on her family.

But in recent months she has been tipped to become the first female Time Lord in Doctor Who, after lead David Tennant revealed he was quitting at the end of 2009.

Piper was a huge hit with fans and critics when she played the Doctor's assistant Rose Tyler when the show was revived for modern audiences in 2005.

Sleepy head: Winston has a stretch while a relaxed Billie enjoys a laugh

Tennant has given her his influential seal of approval and because the role is not free for another year, this could give Piper the time she needs to spend with her family.

Asked if Miss Piper could take on the role, he said a female Doctor was a distinct possibility.

'Why not?' he said. 'It's one of those parts any actor could bring something valid to, because it can be anything and it's a blank canvas every time.

Tennant will leave after completing four special episodes of Doctor Who to air next year.

Executives are looking for a new Time Lord for the fifth series, scheduled to broadcast in 2010.

Amy Winehouse proudly shows off her healthier new body... as ex-lover tells of her 'bulimia and sex addiction'

Amy Winehouse looked healthier and happier than she has been in years, as she tucked into lunch on her Caribbean holiday.

Polishing off nearly a full plate of food, the chart-topping singer's clear skin and shiny hair spoke volumes about her improved diet and lifestyle - a stark contrast with the excesses of her life in London, the full extent of which was revealed by an ex-lover today.

Alex Haines, who had a relationship with Winehouse while her her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, was in jail, revealed graphic details of her self-harming, and sex and drug addictions.

Haines, 23, also spoke of how he discovered Winehouse had an eating disorder, and revealed her fears of joining the '27 Club' - a group of musicians, including Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, who died at that age.

In an interview with The News Of The World, Haines claimed that the 25-year-old spent £3,500 each week on drugs. 'She had to have a heroin and crack pipe near her or she freaked out,' he said. 'She’d keep taking drugs until she passed out.

'At one party Amy wanted to prove she was used to cocaine. So she did a line that was 20 centimetres long to show she was a big user.'

Haines, who was Winehouse's assistant at the time, claimed that the singer would team her breakfast of tea and toast with crack. 'When Amy woke up the first thing she’d ask was, "Where’s my pipe?"' he said.

He spoke of how the 'Rehab' star would make crack pipes by putting foil on top of plastic bottles to burn the drug.

'When Amy ran out of the drug it she would cut the bottle in half and sit there on the floor completely wired, scraping the inside to get the residue with a screwdriver.

For such a small girl she had amazing drugs tolerance. It was scary what she could do.'

Winehouse's self-destructive streak also extended to self-harming. 'Cutting herself was her favourite pastime,' said Haines. 'It was my job to look after her. But it was impossible.

'The first time I saw her do it was after she told Blake we’d had a fling. She cut herself with scissors from shoulder to wrist.' he revealed, admitting that he didn't think Winehouse would survive the year.

Haines, whose affair with Winehouse began after her husband was jailed for GBH and perverting the course of justice. He claimed that the Brit Award winner was as addicted to sex as she was to drugs. 'It was like having my own little porn star. Amy was so dirty—she wanted sex all the time.'

Haines also spoke of an eating disorder, telling how the singer told him how she had suffered from bulimia for years.

'She would have a massive McDonalds and then throw it all up in the bathroom. I found my toothbrush covered in sick, and asked her about it.

'She lived off Crunchie bars—up to 10 at a time—packets of Haribo sweets and bottles of orange Lucozade Sport. Her heroin problems made her crave sugar.'

The couple would argue over Winehouse's erratic behaviour. Haines told how Amy would talk of her future with Fielder-Civil with him, only moments after making love.

The guilt of their affair would eventually lead her to end the relationship, shortly before her husband's release from prison. 'She couldn’t cope with her own guilt,' said Haines. 'She told me, "Blake said we can’t speak to each other any more. You know I love you to pieces but we can’t see each other."'

Haines has not spoken to Winehouse since, but said of her: 'To me she wasn’t a star, but a sweet girl with a few problems. She needed rehab—and it’s great to see her getting better.'

ennifer Ellison appears to have found her slippers... and she's wearing them in the street

It was a case of life imitating art when actress Jennifer Ellison was spotted wearing her slippers out in public.

The former Brookside star is currently starring in the Liverpudlian panto production of Cinderella - the story of a young woman who loses her slipper at a royal ball.

The 25-year-old looked dressed for snuggling up on the sofa than out for a shopping trip when she was spotted out and about in her native Liverpool yesterday.

Found her slippers: Cinderella star Jennifer Ellison strolls around Liverpool in a pair of comfy slippers

Despite recovering from the flu and the below freezing temperatures in Merseyside, Jennifer was wearing a tight-fitting velour tracksuit, which revealed her midriff to the chilly day.

Clutching a black handbag, a cold-looking Ellison looked to be regretting her inappropriate wardrobe for her winter stroll.

Last week, Ellison was forced to miss six performances of Cinderella after she was struck a double blow to her health.

Don't slip up: Ellison takes a brisk walk in her chilly tracksuit during a freezing day in Liverpool

She tore ligaments in her shoulder after failing backstage during a costume change, then came down with flu last week.

Despite her illness, she managed to return to the stage on Boxing Day, joining her co-stars Les Dennis and Cilla Black in the £1million production.

Over Christmas, Ellison was treated to some TLC by her semi-pro boxer fiance Rob Tickle.

The couple started dating earlier this year after splitting from long-term love Tony Richardson last year.

Lindsay Lohan and lover Samantha Ronson go shopping for sexy lingerie

With the new year just around the corner, there's no better time to revamp your wardrobe.

Linsday Lohan decided to inject a bit of romance into hers when she went shopping for some sexy lingerie.

The actress seemed particularly keen on a black halterneck bra - with gold chains for straps - and matching briefs.

Brief encounter: Linsday Lohan shops for sexy lingerie in Beverly Hills on Sunday

Maybe she had a surprise in store for girlfriend Samantha Ronson - who accompanied her on the shopping trip in Beverly Hills.

Or perhaps the Mean Girls star thought the purchase a wise investment after she was pictured earlier this month in a sheer T-shirt and no bra.

Either way, when it came to paying for the goods, gal pal Samantha flashed the cash while Linsday was busy chatting on her mobile phone.

The loved-up couple seemed to have gotten over their tiff last month during a trip to London.

After a night of partying, Lindsay went to the couple's limousine but was left waiting for Sam for ten minutes.

When they arrived back at their hotel onlookers said British girl Sam stormed out of their Maybach limousine and went inside, leaving Lindsay sitting alone.

Perhaps the sour mood between the two was caused by the surprise appearance of Lindsay's former lover Calum Best.

An insider said: 'Lindsay was horrified when she found out Calum was there and refused to talk to him.

'Samantha gets jealous of her former male lovers, and Lindsay didn't want to upset her.'

Madonna donated staggering £2million to Kabbalah groups

Spiritual advice for Madonna hasn't come cheap - she handed over close to £2m to the Kabbalah religious group in one year alone.

Tax filings for her charitable foundation, called Ray of Light Foundation, revealed a total of £1.75m was given to the Kabbalah Centre of Los Angeles.

A further £2,600 was given to an offshoot of the group, Spirituality for Kids. The money is believed to have paid for books and other items to be used in schools.

Huge donations: Madonna and adopted son David Banda arrive at the Kabbalah Centre in New York last month; Madonna donated nearly £2million to the religion in one year

The figures are contained in the 2007 tax filings to the US taxman for her Ray of Light Foundation.

According to reports in the US while Kabbalah benefited from her generosity no money was given to her other main charity, Raising Malawi.

Despite adopting a son David from the impoverished African country Madonna, 50, did not make any charitable donations to groups working in the country.

Madonna's other sizeable charity donations include £200,000 to the Mobilization Against AIDS charity and £10,000 to the TJ Martell Foundation for Cancer Research.

The singer has a £300m fortune and ticket sales from her last tour grossed over £60m.


Close to her heart: Madonna shows her devotion to Kabbalah with a quirky t-shirt

Having divorced husband Guy Ritchie after four years of marriage she is reported to be giving him a cash lump sum of £12m.

Ritchie will keep their 1,200 acre Ashcombe House country estate in Wiltshire which is worth £20 million.

The film director will also keep his £3 million Punchbowl pub in London.

In one of the biggest celebrity break-ups of 2008 the singer petitioned for divorce on the grounds of 40-year-old Ritchie's 'unreasonable behaviour'.

The couple were granted a 'quickie divorce' at London's High Court in December.

The couple will share custody of their sons, Rocco, eight, and three-year-old adopted David. Madonna's 12-year-old daughter Lourdes, from a previous relationship, is expected to live in America with her mother.

Madonna and Ritchie were briefly reunited over Christmas for a service at the London Kabbalah Centre.

But they left in separate cars and Madonna had dinner with close friend Gwyneth Paltrow and husband Chris Martin.

New Year baby for heavily pregnant Jennifer Garner?

With her baby due any day a heavily pregnant Jennifer Garner must be wondering if she will see in the New Year with a new addition to her family.

The Juno star showed off her large baby bump as she escorted her daughter to play with a friend yesterday.

Despite looking a little tired behind her dark glasses Jennifer was a hands on mother - helping three-year-old Violet and her young friends into and out of the car.

She dressed for comfort in jogging bottoms, trainers and a jersey top.

Jennifer and husband Ben Affleck only confirmed that she was expecting in August, when the actress was already five-months into the pregnancy.

She told reporters at the time: 'We're so excited, obviously... It's all good, it's great.'

The 36-year-old brunette has previously said she is 'so excited' about the new addition to the family, although she has not revealed the name or sex of the baby.

Her former Alias co-star Victor Garber says his close friend is happier than ever.

'She’s wonderful,' he says. 'She’s probably the best mother I’ve ever witnessed.'

And while Jennifer focuses on motherhood her husband is busy starring in highly-anticipated romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You alongside Jennifer Aniston.

Joss Stone cuddles up to her 'new boyfriend'... a builder from Devon

It appears Joss Stone may have found love again.

After three years of singlehood, the soul diva is reportedly smitten with her new boyfriend - who works in the building trade.

Joss, 21, has been seeing 'brickie' Danny Radford since last summer but is said to have known him for most of her life.

The look of love: Joss Stone cosies up to builder boyfriend Danny Radford at a Halloween party earlier this year

Danny, who lives with his parents close to Joss's family home, is a far cry from the glamour of her previous boyfriend, the son of Motown producer Lamont Dozier.

The Grammy Award winner is reportedly enjoying the down-to-earth relationship as they have been keen to avoid the public eye.

But the pair were pictured at a Halloween party earlier this year looking very much an item as Joss licked the 19-year-old while posing for the camera.

A source told The Sun: 'Joss and Danny are definitely an item now. He's been staying with her at her home in Devon when she's home from Los Angeles. They're inseparable.

Joss Stone

Ghoul-friend: Joss is said to have known him before she was famous and he has been close to her family for years

'He'd do anything for her and is totally devoted - she seems to be just as taken with him.

'One of the reasons that they work so well is that Joss trusts him completely.

'She knew him before she was famous and he has been close to her family for years.

'Joss's mum loves him and trusts him not to hurt her.

'She flies all over the world and mixes in glamorous circles - but just wants to have fun with an ordinary guy.'

Earlier this year, the singer admitted she would like to find love again after splitting from her first love Beau Dozier in 2005.

She said: "You know what? I'd give up fame tomorrow for a solid relationship.

'Looking back now, I wonder if it really was love between Beau and me.

'I think it must have been deep infatuation based on lust.'

Joss seems to be taking a leaf out of the Hollywood starlets' book as she is not the first to get up close and personal with a builder.

Cameron Diaz is currently dating former Essex 'brickie' Paul Sculfor, who previously dated Jennifer Aniston.

British born actor and model Paul is a close friend of Victoria Beckham and has also dated Strictly Come Dancing contestant Lisa Snowdon.

He and Cameron began dating quietly in June, not long after he split from former Friends star Rachel.

7 Ways to Make a Good Impression

Impressions are important: They leave an initial taste in people's mouths that can remain prevalent for the entire relationship. If you are paranoid about what kind of impression you make, run through these seven list items and see if you are consistent with them; if you are, then you will probably expose the best of yourself. If not, then work to meet these standards.

1. Dress: The absolute first impression you will make on someone will be through your clothing, because that is what is seen from a distance, and cannot change throughout your meeting. Make sure to dress according to the situation-don't over or under dress-and maintain within the limits of good taste. If you aren't sure if what you're wearing looks good, ask people for an honest opinion. One last thought: always, and I mean always, pull up your pants.
2. Hygiene: Take a shower! Shave! Brush your teeth! You must be fully bathed and groomed before you meet with someone for the first time, because scruffy looking people generally don't seem as neat and mature. Pay attention to the little elements like breath: keep a pack of mint gum with you wherever you go, and periodically check to make sure you aren't killing bugs every time you breathe out. If you sweat heavily, keep a small stick of deodorant/anti-perspirant close, and if you notice you're stinking you can freshen up. People notice the minutiae!
3. Manners: At the table and with other people be civilized, polite and respectful: keep your elbows off of the table, open doors for people and address everyone-initially, at least-by their formal title. This will make an especially good impression on senior citizens, because you will prove that you aren't one of those "new fangled punks."
4. Speech: Have clean, clear diction and speak sans "like" or "you know." It is important to be articulate because that inspires a feeling of intelligence and education in the person you are meeting with. Always leave out profanity, and whatever you do, make sure to speak loud enough for all to hear, because conversationalists are easily agitated if you force them say "excuse me?" more than a few times.
5. Discretion: Choose what to share about yourself: forget to tell everyone about that time you went camping and ruptured your appendix, then fell face first into a pile of bug infested leaves-it is rude and will alienate you from the group. Try to withhold from conversations on personal subjects like religion or more disgusting topics like personal medical care. Before you speak, think about the possible impact of what you might say, then imagine its implications in the long run.
6. Humor: Humor can be your most powerful tool or your doom, because everyone has a slightly different sense of humor. What might be hilarious to you might seem disgusting to another, or vice versa. Try to withhold from any jokes that aren't family or dinner table friendly; you can tell those later.
7. Start and End with a Bang: I am a classical musician, and in my orchestra, among other messages, the conductor tells us that the "audience remembers mostly the first and last notes of a symphony." This is the same in a personal encounter: whoever you are meeting with will remember how you greet them, and then in what manner you left them. If you feel you have trouble with this, practice a few different phrases in the mirror, and introduce elements like: "pleased to meet you," or "honored to make your acquaintance." Ignore the antiquity of these phrases; it often makes them more memorable.

Making a good impression will set any relationship off on a good foot. If you are in a situation where you need to be judged at face value-such as a job interview or date-then make sure to go through this list and make sure you are within bounds of reason and good taste on all of your decisions.

Mariah Carey and the dog carrier: Singing diva steps out with her husband in Aspen

Mariah Carey has picked up a diva reputation over the years due to her outrageous demands and extensive entourage.

And it seems that the singer's husband Nick Cannon may have joined her notoriously huge team of assistants - as the dog carrier.

The dutiful 27-year-old was on hand to ferry Carey's dog Jack around as the couple enjoyed a white Christmas together in Aspen and the singer made sure she was dressed for the occasion.

All-white: Nick Cannon takes on the role of dog carrier as he and wife Mariah Carey enjoy their first Christmas together in Aspen

Carey, 38, stepped out dressed in a winter-white outfit, including impractical white boots, to celebrate her first Christmas with Cannon.

The newlyweds, who were married in April after a whirlwind six week romance, looked happier than ever as they took a walk through the snow-filled streets.

Carey recently spoke of her excitement at spending the festive with her new husband.

‘I'm really looking forward to being in love on Christmas,’ she told Redbook magazine.

‘It's easy to be lonely that time of year, and in the past I just dove into that festive mode with a sort of I-don't-care attitude.

‘The holidays are always great, but being in love is going to be the icing on the cake.'

The couple, who originally met at the Kids' Choice Awards in 2005, fell for each other when Nick flew to Antigua at the end of March to play Carey's love interest in the video for her single Bye Bye.

'Aspen is all about the snow and the environment, so it automatically puts you in that celebratory mood.

‘I don't really do up my New York apartment for Christmas; I save everything for Aspen,' she said.

The exotic location is also favoured by actress Paris Hilton, Hilary Swank and Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, who have all been pictured there this week.

Denise Richards hits the ice with her girls

Actress Denise Richards was every inch the doting mother on Christmas Eve as she took her two daughters ice skating.

The 37-year-old looked happier than ever as she enjoyed some festive fun with Sam, 4, and Lola, 3, at an outdoor rink in Santa Monica, California.

The family trip comes just weeks after the girls narrowly avoided injury after they were involved in a four-car pile.

Sam and Lola were travelling with their nanny in Malibu when a Honda Civic made a turn in front of them, causing several vehicles to collide.

Denise has been locked in a bitter feud with her her ex Charlie Sheen, the girls' father, since their marriage crumbled in 2006

Last year Charlie took the former Bond Girl to court in a failed attempt to prevent her from including their daughters in her reality show It's Complicated.

Charlie's father Martin said at the time: 'We were hoping they wouldn't be exposed to that. It's unfortunate. But she's of a mind where it's important to her.

'Maybe she has to get involved with something to realise how big a mistake it is.'

Two And A Half Men star Charlie, who is now married to Brooke Mueller, said: 'I think we should all just boycott the damn thing.'

Despite the controversy, the show was recently picked up for a second season with filming due to begin in the New Year.

Denise defended her decision to include the girls in the E! series in October.

'They weren't there 24/7, we definitely have set hours' she told US magazine.

'They have been around this since they were born so they were just happy momma was home working,' she told US magazine.

Glum Katy Perry takes to the beach during Christmas break

Katy Perry showed off her toned bikini body yesterday as she hit the beach during a sun-soaked Christmas break.

The 23-year-old, dressed in a green two-piece, is spending the festive period in Mexico with her boyfriend Travis McCoy lead singer of Gym Class Heroes.

However the singer didn't appear to be enjoying herself and could barely manage a smile despite her attentive beau's attempts to cheer her up.

Last week the I Kissed A Girl singer denied that she was engaged to McCoy after it was reported that he had proposed to her with a diamond ring during a holiday in France.

The 27-year-old has previously credited Perry for helping him to turn his life around during a dark period of depression.

"There was this really, really dark point about two years ago when I just hit rock bottom... and I called Katy who was in L.A. at the time and said to her, 'Do you mind coming out and keeping me company?

"I honestly think had she not come, I really don't think I would be here right now.

"Without even talking, she just listened. I truly believe that she saved my life.'

Perry recently admitted that she is planning to shock her fans in 2009.

'Maybe you won't expect it, but that's what I like to do - keep people on their toes.'

Perry added that she had no intention of following the trends set by established artists.

‘What's the point of being in pop if you're going to be a wind-up doll?’ she asked.

Leathery: Donatella Versace revealed her over-tanned leathery body on the beach in St Barts yesterday

But yesterday onlookers claimed it was likely that the mother of two's love of sunbathing will prove her undoing.

The habit has taken a heavy toll on her skin, which appears to be deeply wrinkled and loose on her emaciated frame.

She has also desperately clung to her long platinum blonde hair despite it making her appear much older.

Miss Versace, who is worth £500million, battled a cocaine and alcohol addiction for more than a decade, and was forced into rehab four years ago.

She said at the time: 'I did it for myself, first. You can't do it for another reason. I knew I was hurting people.

'And if I wasn't functioning, nothing around me was functioning - I was aware of that.'
