Kelly Brook is glad she can marry for love not money.

The 30-year-old model-and-actress - who is currently in a relationship with rugby star Danny Cipriani and previously dated actors Billy Zane and Jason Statham - has boosted her earnings by developing property and admits she is relieved to be financially independent as it gives her more freedom in her personal life.

She said: "I'm so glad I don't have to pick a partner for security now. I've hopefully set myself up so I can be independent forever.

"I'd hate to have hit 30 and thought, 'I'm a has-been model with no assets, looking for a 50-year-old millionaire to get shacked up with.' A lot of girls my age end up like that. It doesn't mean I don't want to get married and have a family - but it has to be for the right reasons."

The brunette beauty has just posed for her first raunchy magazine pictures in five years and while she is delighted with the images, admits she hasn't yet told her boyfriend.

She added to Style magazine: "Most people are losing their lingerie campaigns at 30, not getting new ones.

"The photographer said, 'We want you naked on the back of a Harley-Davidson, driving through the Mojave Desert.' I said, 'Hell, yeah!'

"Five years ago, I would not have done it. Now, I love it. I'm in thigh-high leather biker boots."

"I haven't told Danny. I don't really tell him these things. He'll be fine with it. I'm sure his friends will have the pictures in the locker room - 'This is your girl!' "
