Former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson owes $493,000 (£320,000) in income tax, California officials have revealed.

She is one of 250 businesses and people named on the annual California Franchise Tax Board list of those owing more than $150,000 (£97,000).

The star's lawyer, Robert T Leonard, said he did not wish to comment.

Anderson, 42, who appeared in pantomime in Wimbledon, London, in December, is currently competing on US TV show Dancing With the Stars.

She is up against celebrities including Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Anderson's skimpy outfits on the show have been a hot topic in US magazines and websites.
