LONDON (AP) — Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern who became world-famous through her dalliance with President Clinton, reportedly is to host six 10-minute episodes of a television show for Britain's Channel 5 network.

The show, ``Monica's Postcards,'' will feature Lewinsky as a roving reporter, The Daily Express newspaper said Saturday.

In the episodes, to be broadcast in November, Lewinsky interviews ``Bridget Jones's Diary'' author Helen Fielding, discusses her body image during a trip to a West Coast health spa and visits the set of American soap opera ``Days Of Our Lives,'' the newspaper said.

It quoted a channel spokesman as saying the episodes will be reporter-led and feature Monica prominently throughout.

Channel 5 or Lewinsky's spokesperson could not be immediately reached for comment.

The scandal surrounding Lewinsky's affair with the president led to Clinton's impeachment and Senate trial, where he was acquitted.
