Antipodean sex pot Holly Valance is tipped to be Sarah Michelle Gellar's replacement in hit show Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

The stunning KISS KISS singer has been approached to take a role in the long running series. She first shot to fame as a soap star in Australian show Neighbours.

An industry insider says, "Holly watches Buffy and realises this is a high profile opportunity. She has said that she wants to get away from her lad's mag pin-up image and this is a good halfway house for her. Plus she gets to fight off bloodsuckers and ghouls in a fun role."

A source close to the show adds, "Holly's been approached and she's interested. She is one of the most energetic performers in showbusiness and would be perfect for the role. She is a recognised face with a background in acting. It could be a great step for her into Hollywood."
