Lily Allen favourite to be Dr Who's new sidekick

The BBC is searching for a new female sidekick to partner Matt Smith who was unveiled as the 11th Dr Who on Saturday. Singer Lily Allen is the bookies' favourite to takeover the role occupied by Billie Piper over the last few years, but Rachel Stevens and Kelly Brook are also possible candidates.

Allen has been linked with the role in the past and Piers Wenger, the executive producer of the long running sci-fi show, has confirmed that the production team would love to have the 23-year-old singer on board.

But judging from the New Year's snaps of Allen snuggling up to her new beau Jay Jopling in the Caribbean, it looks like she has other things on her mind right now.
