Lily Cole has officially given up modelling to focus on acting full-time.

The British model has been juggling fashion assignments with Hollywood roles in recent years, winning parts in 2009 fantasy film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and last year's Snow White and the Huntsman.

However, Cole is now adamant she won't be returning to her life as a model.

"I'm not modelling any more. It's been a crazy journey since first being spotted, but modelling never felt like a long term plan. I've wanted to act since I was a child,'' she said.
