US First Lady Laura Bush has made a special appearance in a television makeover show.

The programme was recorded on Tuesday as Mrs Bush toured Hurricane Katrina relief sites on the Mississippi coast.

Hundreds of people crowded into the Biloxi Community Centre, where Mrs Bush handed out donated clothing.

A spokeswoman for Mrs Bush said the episode would air in December. The ABC show usually remodels the homes of deserving families.


Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to the Mississippi coast to help distribute items donated for victims of the storm, which displaced up to one million people.

During the filming, Mrs Bush said she was encouraged by the way governments, organisations and individuals were helping in the aftermath of the hurricane, which hit on 29 August.

"It's going to take all of these working together to help people rebuild their lives.

"It really is heartbreaking," she said.
