DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Nicollette Sheridan has signed up to pitch underwear for lingerie company Hestia in Australia.

The British-born actress visited Sydney on 29 September (05), to shoot a TV commercial and to make promotional stops for the company.

The advertisements, which will only be shown in Australia, reportedly feature Sheridan wearing little more than a lacy bra as she pretends to undertake household chores including ironing and hedge trimming.
