One strikes terror into men..the other is Medusa; STARS SENT UP IN THE NEW SPITTING IMAGE Snakes alive! It's Heather.

Byline: By Joanne Curran

HEATHER MILLS and snake-haired Medusa have come together in a hilarious new Spitting Image-style comedy.

Mills is portrayed as the poisonous character who strikes terror into men and turns anyone caught in her steely gaze to stone.

And 60 other celebs, including a muscle-bound Madonna, come in for merciless treatment in the satire Headcases.

The computer animated show also features a crack-ravaged Amy Winehouse in the drug Olympics.

And Dames Helen Mirren and Judi Dench appear with Kate Winslet as chavs who travel in a white limo and show off their "lady lumps".

In another scene, Prime Minister Gordon Brown is turned into a Scrooge.

He hosts a celebrity Downing Street party but only Winehouse and Pete Doherty show up.

Princes William and Harry are just "normal blokes", while David Cameron is, unsurprisingly, an Etonian toff.

And Daniel Craig is sent up for his role as James Bond.

The pounds 2.5million show is produced by Spitting Image's Henry Naylor, with voices by Rory Bremner and John Culshaw.

Headcases starts on Sunday, April 6, at 10pm on ITV1.
