Miriam Margolyes, 79, Reveals She’s Created Multiple Sex Tapes
| Last updated
Legendary British actor Miriam Margolyes has explained a rather saucy detail about her past.
Never one to shy away from naughty remarks or candid revelations, the Harry Potter actor said she has made 'multiple sex tapes' in her time.
Speaking from her Italian villa, Ms Margolyes clarified to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that the sex tapes are audio recordings, rather than video ones.
"Well, I did a couple of sex tapes, Sexy Sonja: Leaves from my Schoolgirl Diary. That was one of them," she told the This Morning presenters, who were all struggling to hold back laughter.
"But I have to stress they were audiotapes, they were not visual.
"And they're very exhausting because when you're simulating orgasm, as all of you out there will know, it's tiring and you get a headache.
"It's not a question of having a headache at the beginning, you get a headache at the end."
She explained the tapes were for high street sexy lingerie and sex toy retailer Ann Summers and went on to say simulating orgasms were kind of difficult to do when you're not 'in the mood'.
The actor has been known to dish out some very X-rated comments, much to the shock and surprise of the interviewer and audience.
Margolyes brought up the tapes after Philip asked if she got her role as the voice of Cadbury's Caramel Bunny off the back of some more adult voice work.
He said: "Didn't you possibly get that job out of a couple of other tapes that you might have that were, um...slightly less family-orientated?"
Miriam quipped back with: "I thought I was supposed to be very careful this morning on this show. Your chap told me, 'now don't say anything nasty'."
The TV host agreed that she should stick to making all her comments and replies PG, but he added: "Don't say anything nasty but you're always naughty and we love that."
Miriam appears to be loving life in Italy, however it's resulted in her having to take a break from Call the Midwife due to coronavirus travel restrictions.
