Danielle Lineker has her sights set on Shakespeare.

Having already excelled herself as a television presenter and lingerie model, Danielle Lineker has her sights set on a new career as an actress.

And, make no mistake about it, she is talking about proper, grown-up acting. "I would love to play Portia from Julius Ceasar," she tells me. "It's really theatre I want to do, not film."

Gary Lineker's 31-year-old wife recently completed a course at Guildhall Drama School. "It's always been a dream of mine to act on stage but I never had the confidence, and then, when I hit 30, I just thought 'why should I hold off any more?'"

As for starting a family of her own with Gary, whom she married last year, she says: "It's not really in our plans to be honest. We've got enough with Gary's kids and mine and we are very happy with what we have got".
