Kate Moss is throwing a ballroom dancing-themed Christmas party.

The 37-year-old supermodel is a big fan of British reality TV show 'Strictly Come Dancing' - the UK equivalent of 'Dancing With The Stars' - and is planning a festive bash to tie in with the final of this year's contest on December 17.

A source said: "Kate loves throwing parties for her friends. This will be a huge pre-Christmas soiree held at her country home in the Cotswolds.

"Kate loves all the glitz and glamour of 'Strictly', so she has decided to host a 'Strictly'-themed party. She's invited 17 of her close family friends and told everyone to dress up.

"It will be a very glamorous affair, all of the girls in silk, ball gown-style dresses and the men in formal dinner jackets.

"Kate loves singing and prancing around so it'll definitely end up in a karaoke session."

Kate - who married rocker Jamie Hince earlier this year and has a nine-year-old daughter, Lila grace, from a previous relationship - has asked her new friend, eccentric former TV star Timmy Mallet to host the bash and has invited a host of her celebrity pals to the party.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Kate has asked her new pal Timmy Mallet to host the event and invited her closest mates including Meg Mathews, Stella Mccartney, James Brown and Fazer from N-Dubz.

The source added: "We're not sure if Timmy will be sporting one of his wacky loud shirts, colourful glasses or giant Pink foam mallet but it's guaranteed he'll sing on the karaoke with Kate."
