ACTRESS Louise Jameson (above), who makes her first appearance this weekend as Dr Who's new assistant, has just one worry when she landed the coveted part.

She isn't keen on the shape of her bottom. And the leather loincloth she wears for the part leaves little to the imagination.

So Louise, 25, asked for a little leather flap to be added to keep the camera from showing too much.

All the same, she has to spend 90 minutes before filming applying make-up in some very odd spots.

She says: "The flap isn't fixed, so I use the make-up to help me look better If it blows up when I have to do something energetic."

Louise plays Leela, a rebellious member of the Sevateem tribe. They live on a planet which the Doctor (Tom Baker) visits in the new four-part adventure, The Face Of Evil (BBC 1, Saturday, 6.20).

She is certainly his sexiest assistant so far.
