Elizabeth Hurley has been confirmed to join the fifth season of Gossip Girl.
According to TV Line, the British model/actress will feature on the drama series in a multi-episode arc as a media mogul called Diana Payne.
Executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran described Hurley’s character as “a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with”.
“Diana’s entrance on the Upper East Side will change the lives of all our characters – including, and especially, Gossip Girl herself,” the pair said.
“Elizabeth’s sense of humour, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her.”
