Emma to bring down the house with dance slot

MODEL Emma Quinlan will be taking to the stage at Oxegen this weekend after being signed up as one of Swedish DJ Steve Angello's dancers.

The Diary can reveal how the leggy beauty is set to show off her moves when she joins the Tell Me Why artist for his headline act at the Dance Arena on Sunday evening.

Emma (25) explained how she first met the DJ, who is part of the Swedish House Mafia collective, when she made her debut as a dancer at last year's festival.

"I'm very excited about it and I've been doing lots of practicing over the past few days," she said.

"It's going to be just myself and one other girl called Carol Doyle up there with him so it's a good opportunity for us.

"I'll also get to go backstage and mingle with all the bands on the Saturday which is always fun," she added.

Emma -- who has no shortage of high-profile connections in the music industry including her close pal Florence Welch (of the Machine) -- went on to explain how she is set to meet up with The Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am on Saturday.

The bubbly model was invited to join Cheryl Cole's rumoured squeeze on stage when he performed at The Academy last May and went on to party with him and his crew into the early hours.
