Former teenage pop star Billie Piper is getting ready to hang up her red suspenders for good as she told reporters that this would be her last series of Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

The show, which features Piper, 28, playing a high class hooker Belle Du Jour, has been a huge hit.

Billie said, “I feel we’ve pretty much been everywhere with the stories. You wouldn’t want to exhaust it to the point of seediness.

“The sex stuff is fine and silly, but sometimes you just want to sit in your tracksuit bottoms and chat on the set instead of endlessly prancing around in your knickers trying to be sexy when you feel like rubbish.”

Asked if the show had left her with a gruelling diet regime, Billie credited having children to look after as her main form of exercise.

“Having a child is the best way to keep trim as it completely changes your metabolism,” she said.

“I just don’t stop. I am always running up and down the stairs and leaving the house is an exercise regime in itself!

“I like nothing than better than being at home with Laurence and Winston.

“I do think you need to have a strong relationship when you have a child as your hormones are all over the place. It tests your relationship as you get tired and you can say things you don’t mean. But we are very happy.”

The star, who was once married to Radio 2 DJ, Chris Evans, will feature in the final series, which starts on ITV2 at 10pm tomorrow night went on to say,

“This has been brilliant fun. I’ve loved the fact it is very bold drama. It does deeply offend some people, but I think it is good that people talk about the show.

“There are very few good, strong roles around like Belle, especially for women. It is what it is – naughty, suggestive and silly.”
