A James Bond fan like no other, the 28-year-old Birmingham bartender has officially changed her name by deed poll to 'Miss Moneypenny'. With 13 other Bond girls' names in the middle.
And the single girl now hopes her new name will lead to her finding her very own James Bond.

Bridgit Bardot – but the tongue in cheek innuendo of some of the names
has always made me giggle.'
