The Victoria's Secret model and her fellow angels Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, Lindsay Ellingson and Doutzen Kroes are preparing for the lingerie label's upcoming show, which airs on TV in December.

Although there is a lot of pressure on them to keep in shape for the production Lily insists she doesn't feel worried about looking a certain way.

"I think it's all about being happy and healthy and embracing your body type," she told Huffington Post Live.

While these models have all been confirmed to walk during the event, the same can't be said for Angels Erin Heatheron, Anne V., Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne.

It is thought they will be absent from the show due to other priorities. Anne has been focusing on her work for TV show The Face and Cara and Jourdan have other ventures on the horizon.
