I am woman, hear me roar: Holly Valance channels Raquel Welch's cave girl from One Million Years B.C. for the new Euromillions campaign

She became a sexy new pin-up for millions of young male movie goers when she first flashed onto the scene in her fur bikini.

But 45 years on and Raquel Welch could find herself upstaged by a young sexy Australian who has brought the sexy cave girl look into the 21st century.

Holly Valance is the face of this weekend's EuroMillions draw and got her prehistoric groove on for the campaign, which sees her in a sexy fur bikini.

It was a scene recreated from the 1966 film One Million Years B.C. in which the then 26-year-old Welch, now 71, played cave girl Loana.

And Holly showed off the results of her gruelling Strictly Come Dancing schedule in her own fur bikini, as she posed on some rocks with her fingers crossed.

The actress, 28, was the face of the campaign, called One Million Pounds in homage to the film, which will guarantee that 25 British Euromillions players will win £1,000,000 in tonight's draw.

And it's proved to be a fantastic year for Holly, who was the face of Fosters lager this summer, a campaign which she said was perfect for her.

She said: 'I was approached a little while ago by Fosters and I am a big beer drinker. My friends have been giggling their butts off because they couldn’t think of a more perfect person to endorse beer.’

She then revived her TV career when she signed up as one of the celebrity contestants on Strictly Come Dancing.

Paired with Artem Chigvintsev, Holly wowed the judges and audiences alike and came fourth in the competition after they were eliminated in the 11th week.

But Holly's year has still ended on a huge high - after her billionaire boyfriend proposed to her yesterday.

The former Neighbours star took to her Twitter page to announce the news after property tycoon Nick Candy got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Nick, 38, who has been with the star for three years, whisked her away to the Maldives on Wednesday for a Christmas break, and proposed to her on the beach with the words 'Will you marry me' written in fire.

And Holly took to her Twitter page to post the photo of him proposing and wrote: ' 'And I said YES!!! ♥ Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx.'
