Lily Allen takes a walk on the wild side in daring pose with panthers…
Lily Allen stripped off for her riskiest photoshoot yet as she posed topless beside two ferocious panthers.
Wearing nothing but a pair of diamond-squared hotpants, opaque tights and platform heels, the Smile singer appears to show none of ‘The Fear’ she sings about in her latest single.
The sexy shoot for Q magazine took place last month, just hours after the 23-year-old singer jetted in from the Caribbean, where she was photographed frolicking with 45-year-old art mogul Jay Jopling.

While the singer appears brave (and perhaps a little insane) to be standing so close to the predatory animals, it turns out Lily was not put at risk and the big cats were simply digitally added in.
In another fun shot, it looks like Lily is taking to the dancefloor with three panthers as she shimmies in between them in a purple fringed dress.
Shot by photographer John Wright, Lily poses in a series of skimpy outfits with her newfound friends from Buckinghamshire’s Amazing Animals, who were handled by experienced trainers during the challenging shoot.
In the accompanying interview, Lily discusses the new ‘hunk’ in her life, Audio Bullys DJ Tom Dinsdale, despite being photographed with Jopling just days earlier.

The interviewer even claims Lily French kisses Dinsdale in front of him.
She tells the magazine: ‘The hunk in my kitchen… Well, he’s hot. He’s cute, isn’t he? I had a sleep-over two nights ago and he came along.’
In the interview, Lily also admits she is in regular contact with ex-boyfriend Ed Simons, who she split from in January last year after a five-month relationship.
The couple ended their relationship shortly after Lily suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage.
She explained: ‘We still speak two times a week, he texts me all the time, making sure I’m all right.
‘We never were not friends, it just became difficult. Because there was so much pain associated with everything that happened, for me I just needed to get away.
‘But we still love each other. And we talk all the time and maybe one day we’ll get back together. But I don’t know. Not right now.’
She also tells the magazines she has visited several lapdancing clubs, despite finding them ’embarrassing’.
