I'M A CELEB-BOTTY; We take a peek at the cheeky girls with the must-have pants () Get me INTO these!

Byline: CAROLINE BARRETT TRENDY:

IT'S the latest way for a top celebrity totty to show off her botty.

Combat trousers with the maker's name on the backside are rear-ly causing a stir.

Pop babe Kylie Minogue, famed for her pert bottom, was one of the first celebs to give the bum's rush to ordinary pants.

She legged it to posh London store Harvey Nichols for an pounds 80 pair by Punk Royal.

Atomic Kitten's Jenny Frost, along with Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow, quickly followed the cheeky trend.

And within days the top department had sold out, forcing other dedicated followers of fashion to go on a waiting list.

Other trendy celebs such as Emma Bunton, Natalie Appleton and Meg Mathews have opted for similar combat pants by the Less Delux label, which can be snapped up for pounds 59.

Even Corrie stars Angela Lonsdale (policewoman Emma Watts) and Lucy-Jo Hudson (feisty teenager Katy Nelson) have been strutting their stuff in Less Delux around the Granada TV studios in Manchester.

Worn with a range of jackets and tops, it's no wonder girls everywhere are getting behind the latest craze.

The People's fashion expert Karen Crook said: "These pants are definitely the must-have fashion item this spring.

"Anyone who is anyone on the celebrity circuit owns a pair of these trousers.

"But because they're not too expensive, joe public have also been able to afford to splash out on a pair.

"You've got to have the bottom, though. These trousers are not very flattering if you have a big one - you don't want to draw attention to it."

Bit of a bummer, that.
