Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan is fast approaching her 45th birthday, but it's clear age hasn't wearied her ability to set temperatures soaring.
Sneak peek stills from hit series show the actress looking more fabulous than ever as she parades around Wisteria Lane in an animal print one-piece and towering heels.
The actress was the subject of persistent rumours she was exiting the hit show after she was kicked off Wisteria Lane at the end of season four, which is currently screening in the UK.
But the star promised her return to the street would be 'hot', and she certainly didn't disappoint.
She also has a brand new love interest this time around, Boomtown star Neal McDonough.
The series picks up in the year 2013, with producer Marc Cherry revealing: 'The flash-forward was my way of hitting the reset button on the show.
'I felt the story lines had gotten to operatic and complex, and I wanted to go back to the simplicity of season one.
'It's our way of washing away the soap. Season five will open five years down the road, and there's a big new mystery.'
Meanwhile, Nicollette is single again after splitting from singer Michael Bolton last month following a two year engagement.
The actress and 55-year-old crooner decided to go their separate ways after an 'amicable' split.
The couple originally dated for five years in the mid 90s, before splitting in 1997.
After the Sussex-born actress ended her engagement to Swedish personal trainer, Nicklas Sderblom in 2005, she resumed her relationship with Bolton.
The couple announced their engagement in March 2006.
Both stars have been married before - Sheridan was married to American actor Harry Hamlin for two years in the early 90s, while Bolton has three daughters from his previous marriage to Maureen McGuire, which ended in 1990 after 15 years.
