The actress who recently moved to the area, was guest of honour at the Cirencester Advent Market in the Market Square.

quoteI've lived in a lot of countries across the world, and a lot of towns, but I have to say there's not a town in the world I'd rather live in than Cirencester. quote
Elizabeth Hurley

Thousands of people packed into the square to watch the Austin Powers and Bedazzled star flick the switch.

The actress looked stunning in a bright orange knee length coat, matching dress and black knee high boots.

Taking the microphone as she walked on stage Ms Hurley said: "I was unbelievably honoured when I was asked to turn the lights on.

Hugh's that girl??

"I've lived in a lot of countries across the world, and a lot of towns, but I have to say there's not a town in the world I'd rather live in than Cirencester.

"Everyone has been extremely kind to me and my family since I got here and it's a real treat for me to be here to meet you."

The actress turned on the lights and then posed with Santa before wishing the people of Cirencester a happy Christmas.

She was then presented with a bouquet of flowers and a large abacus for her 19-month-old son Damian.
