Dolly said: "Wonder why I'm dressed like this? It's for my husband's birthday. Remember some time back I said I was going to pose for Playboy magazine when I was 75? Well, I'm 75, and they don't have a magazine anymore.

"My husband always loved the original cover, and I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy. He still thinks I'm a hot chick after 57 years, and I'm not going to try to talk him out of that.

"In the first one I was a little butterball. well, I'm string cheese now. He'll probably think I'm cream cheese, I hope.

"Anyway, I'm going to surprise him, going in singing to him in my little bunny suit.

We don't get to see Carl's reaction but you can imagine it would have given his heart a flutter to see her all dressed up for him.

Last year, Dolly revealed how much she wanted to pose for Playboy in a similar outfit after first gracing the magazine back in 1978.

At the time, the then 32-year-old was the first country singer to pose for the lifestyle mag, though she laid down some strict rules - and was clear that there was no chance of any nudity.

Looking back at her shoot, she told Radio 5 Live: "I have been asked, back in the day, but that was so totally not me. I would never do that.

"But that was a good article they ran in there, and it was just a fun thing to do. That was just another way I was trying to market myself, at that time, to kinda get in the mainstream..."

Fast forward to 2020 and Dolly thought it would be a fun 75th birthday present to herself to recreate the photoshoot, but only if it was in good taste.

A spokesperson for the magazine told LADbible last year that they would 'love to shoot Dolly again', adding: "She knows that all she has to do is say the word!"
