Miriam Margolyes, 79, dropped the bombshell on This Morning on Thursday that she has created multiple ‘sex tapes’.
Speaking from the comfort of her Italian villa, the actress assured presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that they were just audio recordings with no accompanying visuals.
She admitted that she was left ‘exhausted’ after having to simulate orgasms, as she added the shocking interview to her long list of outrageous TV moments, earning her the show’s ‘favourite guest’ top spot.

While discussing a previous job in an advert, Phillip, 58, pressed Miriam: ‘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?’
‘I thought I was supposed to be very careful this morning on this show,’ the Call The Midwife actress quipped before Holly, 40, added: ‘He’s poking you with a big stick, let me tell you that.’
She responded: ‘Your chap told me, “now don’t say anything nasty,”‘ before an amused Phillip said: ‘Don’t say anything nasty but you’re always naughty and we love that.’
‘Well, I did a couple of sex tapes, Sexy Sonja: Leaves from my Schoolgirl Diary. That was one of them’ she laughed as the This Morning presenters struggled to maintain composure.

Miriam continued: ‘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.’
Phillip and Holly were left in hysterics. She recalled they were for Ann Summers, the high street retailer known for selling sex toys and X-rated products.
In a previous appearance on the daytime show, the actress said she could see Holly ‘crackling’ from nerves.

In another instance, Phillip and Holly chuckled as Miriam branded herself as ‘fat with a belly’ as she clutched her stomach.
The 79-year-old is currently soaking up the sunshine in rural Tuscany as the coronavirus pandemic persists in the UK and elsewhere.
She has reportedly been forced to take a break from Call The Midwife due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
The actress has played the lovable Sister Mildred since 2018 and has been a key figure at Nonnatus House ever since.
However, her character will not appear in the upcoming BBC series as she was abroad when filming began and restrictions prevented her from getting back to the UK on time.

A source told The Daily Star: ‘Miriam was abroad when filming took place and – due to travel restrictions – she was unable to get back to the UK to take part.
‘If she could have been back on set, she would have been there in a heartbeat because she loves the show so much.’
MailOnline have contacted a BBC representative for comment.
The 10th series of the much-loved east London based series is due to return to screens in April, with cast members including Helen George, Leonie Elliott, Linda Bassett and Jenny Agutter back again.

And while fans will no doubt miss out on Mother Mildred’s presence, they can rest assured that Miriam will be back for series 11, when it returns in 2022.
Filming for the next series will begin later this year, with the insider adding that ‘everyone is looking forward to welcoming Miriam back’.
While she’s not set to don her habit quite yet, the Harry Potter actress has been making a habit of staying in the headlines in recent months.
In January, she slammed Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic – after previously claiming she wished he’d died of the virus.

The Labour-supporting actress, who has never minced her words when discussing the politician, admitted she fled the UK in May and doesn’t wish to return home until the case numbers have improved.
Miriam also took aim at US President Donald Trump after he was impeached for the second time for inciting the US Capitol protests, claiming he was a ‘dangerous fascist’ who she ‘hopes to see the back of.’
Speaking during an impassioned appearance on Good Morning Britain, Miriam was asked whether she’d be getting a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Harry Potter said that while she was currently isolating at her home in Italy, she’d only return to the UK when it’s safe to get the jab.
She said: ‘Of course one must have a vaccine. Those anti-vaxxers are nuts. They need their heads seen to.
‘It’s ridiculous. I’m hoping I get a vaccine as soon as possible. I’m 79 so I’m not quite 80 yet – I’ll be 80 in May. I may be able to have it in Italy before I come [back to the UK].’
Miriam then insisted Boris must be held to account for his management of the pandemic, which at the time has claimed over 84,000 lives in the UK.
She said: ‘But I’m not going to England until it’s safe to go. I mean you’ve got that clown in charge there that I didn’t vote for and I’m holding him responsible for a lot of this mess.’
