Jodie Kidd Struts on Live

Jodie Kidd + Maserati

Fans of Top Gear’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car segment, or fans of the fashion industry, will recognize this very tall British model. Jodie Kidd, pictured above pretending to be Daisy Duke (though Ms. Duke would likely have had no idea how to pronounce Maserati), will be appearing on Xbox Live this Tuesday from 5:30 – 7:00 pm GMT. Her Xbox Live screen name will be…wait for it…Jodie Kidd. No word on the color of her chosen car just yet.

Jodie Kidd Sets More Than Hearts Racing On Xbox Live
May 2006 – Car fanatic and supermodel, Jodie Kidd will be swapping the catwalk for a console controller to challenge online gamers in an exclusive Project Gotham Racing® 3 (MGS-Bizarre Creations) ‘Game With Fame’.

Game With Fame is exclusive to Xbox Live™ and enables over 3 million Xbox gamers worldwide to chat and game against celebrities from the worlds of sport, music and TV.

Jodie will be chatting and playing exclusively with Xbox Live gamers on Tuesday 30th May from 5.30 – 7pm GMT in a special PGR100 ‘Game With Fame’, where members will have the chance to win an unique, limited edition, black-cased Xbox 360 console.

Supermodel, Jodie Kidd is a motor racing enthusiast, recently taking second place in the Trofeo Maserati race at the Bologna Motorshow, with co-driver Fabio Babini. She has taken part in several Gumball 3000 rallies and held the fastest celebrity lap in Top Gear for some time.

The PGR100, fuelled by Xbox Live, is the online racing event of the year, speed alone is not enough to gain entry into what is set to be the most exclusive virtual racing ‘club’ in Europe. The PGR100 is a test of skill, daring, knowledge, and luck but above all, stylish racing.

This event is part of the ongoing Xbox Live ‘Game With Fame™’ programme and is just one of the many opportunities Xbox Live gamers will have to take on some of the biggest names in the entertainment world. This month’s Game With Fame stars join a growing list of artists, like McFly, The Strokes, Kasabian, Embrace, Maroon 5, Thrills and Goldie Lookin’ Chain, who have all connected with their fans through Xbox Live.

How do I get the chance to play Jodie Kidd?
All Xbox Live members need to pitch their skills against the band is to:
1. Sign into Xbox Live
2. Add the following Game With Fame Gamertag to your friends list:

After that, just go onto Xbox Live on May 4th between 5pm and 7pm GMT to check if you’ve been invited to join in a game and if you have then…
