HAYDEN Panettiere strips down to a bikini and plunges into a swimming pool in a sizzling scene from the latest episode of her hit TV show Nashville.
The Heroes hottie plays and up-and-coming country star trying to save her career in the US series.
Hayden sings for real in the prime-time drama, set in the Tennessee music Mecca.
And as these shots show – she looks incredible in the role.
Nashville has been a breakaway hit on US screens since it debuted in October – attracting as many as 6 million viewers each week.
But it hasn’t been plain sailing for the star. She was involved in a car accident on location in the city earlier this month.
Hayden kept quiet about the crash until yesterday, when she paid tribute the efforts of local cops on Twitter.
She wrote: “Thank you to the Nashville police department. Was in a scary accident and they were great!”

Police confirmed an incident took place three weeks ago, but no further details are known.
Hayden must be OK – she’s been back at work since, and dazzled on the red carpet at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on November 18, wearing a short sparkly dress.
