Paris Hilton is heading to London in search of a new best friend.

The socialite will star in an ITV2 show, with the working title of Paris Hilton’s New Best Friend, as she tries to find a BFF – best friend forever.

She said: “Everyone knows I love LA but London, watch out – I’m coming to town and bringing my fast-paced life with me.

“I’m in the UK all the time, but of course I can’t bring all my friends, so I’ve decided to look for a new BFF across the pond.”

Paris, who also starred in the reality TV series The Simple Life with her one-time best friend Nicole Richie, added: “I need a best friend who is hot, who can keep up with me, and most of all, who is real and won’t be a backstabber.

“I’m not leaving London until I find that amazing girl or guy who can meet the challenges of being my British bestie!”

It comes after Paris’s relationship with another friend – her dog Tinkerbell – apparently prompted a surge in pet owners opting for smaller pooches rather than their larger counterparts.
