Model-actress Kelly Brook has defended her decision to shed her clothes in a risque revue show, insisting burlesque is an art form and features nudity in a beautiful way.
The Piranha 3D star will join the cast of Crazy Horse's Forever Crazy here for one week as a guest performer next month and she will appear alongside fully naked dancers, reported Sun online.
Kelly Brook recently tweeted this picture of herself taken during a costume fitting session for the show.
"It might surprise some people to hear that getting my kit off is not what I'm about. I don't need to be in a strip show and that isn't what burlesque is about - it's so much more than just the striptease," she said.
"It's an art form which has been around for more than 170 years...," she added.
Brook, 32, previously shed clothes on stage to portray a lapdancer in the 2000 play Eye Contact, and she also stripped off in a production of Calendar Girls.
