NATALIE Imbruglia didn’t want her tiny skirt to get Torn last night – and needed a helping hand getting into her cab safely.
Natalie Imbruglia had to get a little help from her friends when she struggled to get in a taxi wearing a very tight mini-skirt last night.
It doesn’t matter Natalie, we’ve seen much more of you in previous photos.
The giggling Australian singer, 35, was having trouble getting into the waiting black cab without exposing too much after a night out with pals including David Walliams and his new model wife Lara Stone.
The hem of Natalie’s dark blue and cream lace skirt clearly kept riding up the brunette beauty’s endless legs – making it difficult to depart with any decorum.
But a friend who’d joined her at London’s swanky Nobu Berkley restaurant and a doorman raced to her rescue and managed to lift the slightly glazed-looking star into the black cab with her dignity intact – and without her skimpy skirt getting Torn.
Lara, 26, couldn’t help give waiting photographers a delightful eyeful before with husband David, 38.
The night out was an early birthday dinner for Little Britain star David, who’s 39 tomorrow.
He married Lara in May this year after a whirlwind romance, but had previously been linked to former Home And Away star Natalie, with David once describing her as his ‘dream woman’.
The pair have remained firm friends ever since. In fact, they’re so close, Natalie was even invited to David’s stag do.
And despite Natalie perhaps being a little tired after her big night out or maybe having had one too many shandies – hence needing a leg-up into the car – she looked tanned, radiant and beautiful nonetheless.
She’s looking forward to being back in the spotlight again when she appears on the X Factor in a few weeks, where she stood in as a guest judge for Dannii Minogue while she was on maternity leave.
Natalie is also readying herself for a full time judging role on X Factor Australia. She will be joined on the panel by Boyzone star Ronan Keating.
As for her role alongside Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole here in the UK, she said: ‘It’s important not to break someone’s spirit.
‘But there are a lot of people who have an unrealistic view of their talent. It’s important to tell them the truth.’
