Dressed in a romantic sugar pink cocktail dress and held aloft by two dark-haired hunks, Coleen McLoughlin proves that her journey from awkward teen to Hollywood-style fashion plate is complete. At a photo call to promote the EuroMillions lottery the 19-year-old appeared to be taking a leaf out of the book of screen icon Audrey Hepburn, whom she so admires.

Wayne Rooney's fiancée was also showing off her new slimline figure - the result of a stringent diet and exercise routine.

The assignment is one of a string of shoots the Liverpool teenager has landed recently. Her £10,000 fee will give Coleen some spending money of her own and confound critics who accuse her of raiding Wayne's earnings.

More than a little miffed about her reputation as a retail addict, the young celeb is keen to show she's a working girl. "I don't want to be a footballer's wife. I want an identity of my own," she stated recently. "I've always been ambitious and worked hard."

The public can also expect to see her moving towards a showbiz career in the future. "I've been taking acting lessons since I was seven. Now I want to be a proper actress, to learn things properly at drama college," she revealed.

Friday sees the largest ever EuroMillions jackpot, with £85 million up for grabs. And Coleen, who admits to regularly buying lottery tickets, plans to try her luck using her family's birthdays and her own special number, four.
