Kirsten's a real sport; Her goal? To tackle top stars of soccer.

Glamour girl Kirsten Imrie, who launches her new career as sports presenter on Liverpool L!VE tonight, has made a shocking confession.

"I must be the only model in Britain who doesn't know any footballers," she admits.

But Chelsea and Rangers fan Kirsten says she's looking forward to meeting some of the stars in her new job on Sport L!VE.

"Especially David Ginola," she smiles.

Kirsten has been single for 18 months since splitting up with her boyfriend, a former model.

"I haven't even had a date," she sighs.

"I found the only people who asked me out were attracted to the notorious person they'd read about in the papers, and that really isn't me."

Kirsten's wild days are a thing of the past, she says.

"I was a complete pillock," she admits.

"I was one of the most successful models in the country but it's easy to be dragged into the corrupt side of the business - and I was.

"When my boyfriend and I split up I decided make a fresh start and rethink my life."

"I've got a head on my shoulders and it was time I started using it.

"I've enjoyed modelling but what I really want now is a career, not just a job, and I want to be taken seriously.

"I've been living a very quiet life recently. I think I've grown up.

"Now I'm really excited about my new job on L!VE.

Kirsten makes her debut as presenter of Sport L!VE on Cable Channel 18 tonight at 6.30pm. She takes over from L!VE TV's Gail McKenna, who has landed a top job as sports presenter for Channel 5 when it launches next year.

"Presenting Sport L!VE is such a big thing for me," says Kirsten.

"It's going to be fun being a person instead of just an image."
