Christmas might feel like it's going to be really different this year without friends and family around us, but Kelly Brook is not using that as an excuse to slum it.
The model and radio presenter assures us she'll still look "super glamorous" for the occasion, even if she's just going to be at home with her boyfriend of five years, Jeremy Parisi.
Kelly, who is the brand ambassador for the F&F Clothing partywear and cashmere range, certainly has her pick of outfits after putting together a Christmas edit for the brand.
While the couple usually spend the festive season in France, they will be in the UK this year. But they don't know exactly where that'll be, given that they're in the process of looking for a new house.
"We don't know where we want to move to, but we've just been looking at the same four walls and fancy a change," she tells us.

Heart radio presenter Kelly, 40, then quips that they'll pick a house depending on what's best for their puppy Teddy, who they have both fallen madly in love with since getting him at the end of the last lockdown.
"Now we've got him, we can't imagine life without him," she says.
It's clear that Teddy has been a much-needed distraction from the outside world, and besotted Kelly says she has bought him Christmas presents already!
The bubbly star also has room in her heart for her partner Jeremy, with whom engagement rumours are always swirling.
"I would love to get married at some point. It's not high on my list," says Kelly.
Jeremy is loved by her family – even more than she is!

"I'd love to have children at some point too, but that's not high on my list either.
"I feel like he's family and I never really felt like that with anyone else. I don't know if it's the Italian in him, or growing up in France, but being with someone from another culture has brought me so much in terms of what he exposes me to.
"He has a different way of looking at things and that can only make my life more full. And likewise, I think he's loved moving to England."
There's one huge problem – and it would have most of us questioning everything.
She adds: "He still can't get his head around a roast dinner. He still doesn't ever want that above a plate of pasta.
"How can he not love a roast?! He'll eat it, but he'd rather eat pasta and have a coffee. It makes me laugh because food brings up so many nice memories, doesn't it? A plate of pasta reminds him of his grandma's cooking when he was a kid, and that's what a roast is like for me.

"It reminds me of my mum cooking on a Sunday."
Kelly's family are big fans of her boyfriend, despite his questionable eating habits.
She laughs: "Everyone loves Jezza. They feel sorry for him because he has to put up with me. He's known as "poor Jeremy" in my family! They prefer him to me.
"His family are ridiculously chic. His mum is the best cook ever. When we go there my boots are usually covered in mud and when I wake up in the morning she'll have polished them!
"It's so embarrassing. She must be thinking 'Who is this dirty English girl with my gorgeous, handsome son and her dirty boots!' I'm mortified by it."
Now Kelly has been heading on a fitness mission – and she has even invested in a trampoline.
Kelly and Jeremy have been dating for five years
She said: "There were two schools of thought – you were either using lockdown as a way to lose the weight you weren't able to lose before because you worked in an office, or you just let go and enjoyed yourself. Unfortunately I was in that camp! I bought an icecream maker, a panini maker and a pizza oven.
"We had so much fun. We'd have a pizza night and a movie night with a screen in the garden. I spent way too much money in [the first] lockdown. It was so embarrassing, besotted Teddy all the Amazon boxes coming through the post.
"I definitely put on weight. And then when I had to start going into the office again, I thought, "I need to start training more." I bought a rebounder mini trampoline, so I've been doing that a bit instead of running, as it's good exercise, and I've been walking the dog."
Kelly is now back modelling for the F&F Christmas campaign and years after first stepping foot in front on the camera she still sees it as a key part of her life.
The star said: "I love modelling – I still do my calendar every year. The F&F Christmas campaign was like a dream come true.
"It was like my Pinterest board coming to life – the turkey, the vintage car, I loved it!"
She added: "You can still be super glamorous even if you're just at home. You don't have to wear a horrible tracksuit, you can wear a cashmere tracksuit like the one from the range – it's beautiful.
"I think we're all watching the pennies at the moment, but we still want to feel good and this collection is perfect and would make great gifts, too."
