THE HAGUE, March 13, 2007 (AFP) - Celebrity ex-wives will urge anguished divorcees to burn their wedding gowns in an act of liberation as part of a new series planned for Dutch and French television.

"Ex-Wives Club" will see three famous divorcees -- including Rosalie van Breemen, the former spouse of actor Alain Delon -- advise other women on how to get over their break-up, Dutch programme makers RTL said on Tuesday.

The show begins on channel RTL 5 on Monday and a version starring the ex-wives of American actor George Clooney, English singer Brian Ferry and a former minister is also being considered for French channel TF1.

"A pilot show has been taped and TF1 will probably make a series," Van Breemen told Dutch news agency ANP.

In the show, she helps the divorced contestants express their anger in several ways -- including by burning their wedding dresses, RTL said.

The former model told the Dutch news agency ANP that the French version would be more restrained than the original, something she regretted, saying the Dutch show was "more harsh and dramatic".
