It's like we've fallen into a timewarp of some sort - Rachel Stevens talking up her chances of a Doctor Who sidekick role all over again. This time, she reckons she could be in with a shot of standing alongside Captain Jack in Torchwood, the Who spin off.

Of course, last time round Billie beat her to the Rose Tyler role - but since then Rachel has fattened up her showreel with a role in Deuce Bigelow European Gigolo. Apparently it was a real movie, and not, as we'd assumed, just a poster campaign designed as tax write-off. Unfortunately, Rachel didn't have a speaking part in it, partly because her onscreen time was shorter than any English sentence, but it all helps.
