A GORGEOUS half-naked man dressed just a slither of underwear gave lunchtime shoppers an eyeful as he sat reading a book behind a shop window.

The stunt was a promotion for the forthcoming production of Matthew Bourne's Dorian Gray which opens at The Churchill theatre, Bromley from June 4.

The Adonis sat reading a copy of the Oscar Wilde book behind Debenhams window, safe from the adoring women who halted their retail therapy to catch a glimpse of him with some taking photographs on their mobile phones.

Kitchen assistant Kelly Jones, 20, said: "I wish I was in there with him. Those pants look really good on him. It's a good promotion."

Set in the image-obsessed worlds of contemporary art and politics, Dorian Gray tells the story of an exceptionally alluring young man who makes a pact with the devil.

It begins its UK tour at The Churchill is Matthew Bourne's first new production in three years.
