Baywatch Babe Katie Price

Katie Price is set to star in the UK version of 'Baywatch'.

The glamour model, also known as Jordan, has been chosen by David Hasselhoff to be the main star of the new version of the hugely popular TV show - which followed a group of Los Angeles lifeguards.

David - who starred in and produced 'Baywatch' - said: "I've been thinking about basing a new show over here. It would be called 'UK-Watch'. And Jordan is certainly feisty and has curves in all the right places."

The hit US series made global stars of Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra and was once the world's most watched show, mainly thanks to the skimpy red swimsuits the female cast wore.

If successful, Katie - who flew to Los Angeles yesterday (14.07.09) to begin acting lessons - could win a role in the proposed 'Baywatch' movie.

Speaking about the film, which will be a tongue-in-cheek comedy by Paramount, director Jeremy Garelick has previously said: "It felt like the template to do a movie that was similar to 'Stripes' and 'Police Academy,' the comedies I loved growing up.

"Rather than trying to pitch the tone, I figured it would be easier to write the first act to convey who these characters were."

None of the original cast will star in the movie, although it is rumoured David and Pamela will make cameo appearances.
