The former Absolutely Fabulous star compared them to peep shows and said she would get rid of them if she was in the director’s chair.

Joanna, 77, believes when actors take their clothes off they lose the character they have built up, because the audience now focuses on their private parts.

The actress, who also played Purdy in The New Avengers in 1976 and 1977, said: “I’m bored stiff with sort of sexy love scenes on screen or on stage.

“So you have immediately lost the character you have spent so long building up, because they are looking at you.” Joanna says she “can’t see the point” of such displays, but admits people love them.

Joanna said that was why all actors “should have a second string to their bow – serve in a pub, write, play a violin, learn to be a plumber”.
