Pamela Anderson returned to her Playboy roots as she partied in Germany.

The former Playboy pin-up, who is set to compete in the upcoming series of US show Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars, attended the opening night of Hugh Hefner's new Playboy Club in Cologne.

The 45-year-old mother-of-two showed off her curves in a figure-hugging dress, which she teamed with black stiletto heels for the launch.

Pamela - a strong animal rights activist - is due to start rehearsals for the new American version of Strictly Come Dancing.

The former Baywatch star has revealed she is nervous about the possibility of winning the show, following her participation in the 2010 series.

"I don't know if I could handle it. I don't know if I could spiritually handle it if I won," she said.

"That'd be nuts. I'm not going to go there... I'm going to dance to dance."
