British model/actress Lily Cole has received a belated Christmas (09) present - a new bicycle, after hers was stolen last month (Dec09).
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus star's cherished Pashley Princess Sovereign bike, worth $960 (£600), was taken in Cambridge, England, where she is studying History of Art at the city's university.
The 21 year old was left distraught by the theft - but the boss of the bike manufacturers, Adrian Williams, has offered her a new ride.
He says, "I thought it was rotten to think of Lily losing her Princess, and I didn't want it to spoil her holidays. Plus, Lily looks so gorgeous on the Princess I couldn't bear her being without one."
