Sir Paul McCartney's wife HEATHER wants to turn her name into a trademark and launch her own range of cosmetics.

The former model, who lost a leg in a car accident in 1993, wants to use her married name, Heather Mills-MCCARTNEY, to promote an American line of artificial limbs - and her application to the US PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE says she may add her name to beauty products too.

But a spokesperson for the 34-year-old insists she's not trying to profit out of the prosthetics venture: "When she filed the application she was advised to put in anything else she might be interested in in the future, like perfume and cosmetics, but she has no immediate plans to do that."
