What a flirt: Brooke Shields can't hide her attraction to guest co-host Mike Catherwood on Live With Regis & Kelly
Brooke Shields put on an outrageously flirty display as she made an appearance on live U.S. television.
The 45-year-old actress threw caution to the wind and poured her figure into a striking red mini-dress, which might have been better suited to a woman half her age.
She then proceeded to put on a touchy-feely display with presenter Mike Catherwood - 14 years her junior - who had stepped in to co-host Live With Regis & Kelly yesterday.
Hands on approach: The actress dived in for a hug
Brooke flashed her long legs and a big smile at the 31-year-old radio personality as he stood in for the show's regular presenter Regis Philbin.
After joking about how amazing Regis looked, as Mike was standing in for the aging host who is retiring, she then repeatedly reached out and touched his arm during their interview.
Finally she told him : 'You're very pretty!'
Mike, who is the host of radio show Loveline on KROQ, appeared to be loving the attention and laughed at the crushing actress.
Showing off: The actress wore a very short bright red mini dress and matching platform heels
But Brooke, who is married to television writer Chris Henchy, had a challenger for Catherwood's affections from host Kelly Ripa, who told him: 'You're perfect. Absolute perfection.'
Kelly, 40, admitted that Mike looked identical to her husband Mark Consuelos, and said of when she saw him backstage: 'I was in heaven back there!'
Mike joined in the praise, two, calling them 'two of the most beautiful women out there.'
Mike has nothing to worry about from the two wannabe cougars however - Kelly has been married for 14 years and Brooke for 10.
