BILLIE Piper has fallen in love Down Under.

The former Bradon Forest School pupil is reported to be considering relocating to Australia, after falling for the continent.

The 25-year-old, who is reprising her role as Rose Tyler in hit BBC show Doctor Who on Saturday, visited Australia several years ago.

And, although she has a home in Sussex with husband Laurence Fox, the actress is seriously considering a move to the other side of the world.

"I loved visiting Australia a few years ago," said Billie. "And I've love to have another home there.

"I don't think I could live there permanently though. I'd miss home too much."

The former Purton schoolgirl is making waves in Australia for her soon-to-screen TV role of a high-class prostitute in show Confessions Of A Call Girl.

Earlier this year she narrowly missed out on a major drama award for her role in the racy series.

Billie, who is currently expecting her first baby with her second husband Laurence, also revealed that her battle with anorexia is ongoing.

That is despite the intense fitness regime she underwent for her raunchy onscreen portrayal.

"I was just very aware of the fact that I was going to be naked a lot of the time," she said.

"And I didn't want to have to think about that as well as the fact that I was doing endless sex scenes.

"So I did quite a bit of running.

"When I feel that my life is out of control I start clutching at straws and those straws all relate to my weight or my health."

Just a few weeks ago Billie said she had feared she had lost her chance of cracking America.

She said her role as Belle De Jour in Diary Of A Call Girl might have scuppered any career she could had have in the US, because of American prudishness over the nude scenes.

Billie, who is busy filming a second series of the drama, said: "Someone said the other day What A-list stars get their t**s out?' "And then I started thinking Oh my God, what have I done? I've ruined my future career.'"

l Doctor Who will be on BBC 1 at 6.40pm on Saturday
