Devon soul singer Joss Stone has been cast as a Bond girl in a new James Bond video game.

A digital version of Stone will appear as Nicole Hunter in 'James Bond 007: Blood Stone'.

GoldenEye screenwriter Bruce Feirstein wrote the video game storyline for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows.

Stone said: "I'm the first Bond girl from the West Country. Instead of Martini in my glass I'm drinking cider."

'Bond's girl'

As well as appearing in the game, the singer-songwriter has also written a new song for the game with Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics.

Inspired by Shirley Bassey, she said: "She's really powerful but there's no ad-libbing or warbling because it wasn't needed.

"I was just inspired by her and I tried to sing it in a really straight, powerful way."

"I would love, love, love to be Bond's girl in the next film," she added.

Stone made her first acting debut in 2006 in fantasy film Eragon.
