Kate Moss has clearly got a taste for TV recently. Hot on the heels of her charity Gogglebox cameo for Stand Up For Cancer last weekend, it has been announced that Mossy will be appearing in a new BBC adaptation of David Walliams's book, The Boy in the Dress.

So we don't really think rehearsals should even be necessary for Ms Moss, seeing as this is a part she's been playing for 40 years.
