Victoria Beckham has been matchmaking for Kelly Brook.

The former Spice Girls singer-turned fashion designer - who has three sons, Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight, and five-year-old Cruz, with husband David Beckham - is keen to set the stunning actress up on a few dates as she knows how lonely life can be in Hollywood.

A source close to Los Angeles-based Victoria told the Daily Star newspaper: "Victoria knows how lucky she and David are. She'd hate to date, especially in Los Angeles, so she's offering some sisterly support to Kelly.

"They've met a few times but really bonded during a string of fashion shows. They share a very cheeky sense of humour and get on really well.

"Victoria saw Kelly and felt really bad for her being thrust back into the dating game. She's apparently got David checking out all his mates and has some crackers lined up for Kelly. It's tough in Hollywood and a girl needs a mate."

However, Kelly - who split from rugby player Danny Cipriani in June - isn't keen on starting a new relationship and just wants to have fun as she attempts to launch her career in Hollywood.

An insider said: "Kelly's not ready for a relationship, she's going into it with an open mind.

"But she's thinking she'll meet new people, she's really looking forward to meeting Victoria's girlfriends, too. She thinks Victoria is a diamond."
