Karen Gillan has admitted she was worried what Jean Shrimpton would think of her portrayal of the Sixties star in a new TV film.

The Doctor Who star plays the actress and model in We'll Take Manhattan, a TV movie about Jean's relationship with the photographer David Bailey.

Karen said: "I guess there is more pressure because part of me thinks I should stay true to what this person actually was. And they're still alive which is quite a significant thing as well, because they're going to see how you portray them.

"But she has seen it and she's really happy, which is really nice."

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan said today she wanted to be in an episode of The Simpsons.

The 22-year-old, who plays Amy Pond in the Doctor Who series, said the chance of being part of the cartoon series programme would be "really cool".

The star was speaking as she signed boxes containing a five-inch version of her character along with posters for more than 200 fans at toy store Hamleys in Glasgow's St Enoch Centre.

Asked whether she had been approached about being in The Simpsons, she said: "I haven't. Maybe someone has. I don't know anything about it.

"That would be really cool. That's almost on a par with being a doll because being a Simpsons character, all yellow and stuff, would be really cool."

Gillan also said she wanted to see ginger wigs in shops as part of Doctor Who merchandise for her character Amy Pond.

"So, I don't know. I have no idea."
