Billie Piper hooks up with Belle de Jour

Actress and call girl to 'bare all'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Secret Diary of a Call Girl thesp Billie Piper and Dr Brooke Magnanti - aka blogging prostitute Belle de Jour - will feature in a forthcoming ITV2 programme which promises "a fresh insight into Brooke's life and Billie's portrayal of her".

ITV's factual commissioning editor, Diana Howie, enthused: "We're delighted that Billie and Brooke have agreed to make this programme.

"There are no two people better placed to bring to life this extraordinary story. This will be a definitive, revelatory and entertaining show that will see them dispel the myths and expose the truths behind one of the most fascinating diary blogs of the modern era."

Research scientist Magnanti, who worked as a London prostitute to fund her PhD, explained: "This show will be the last word on what it was like to be Belle: how my sexuality was formed, how I came to the work, what it's like to be portrayed on TV."

Piper said she was "really looking forward to catching up with Belle again", something which has already happened, according to a recent Belle de Jour tweet.

The BBC explains that Billie and the Call Girl Bare All will hit the small screen next year, as will a new series of Secret Diary of a Call Girl. ®
