CATHERINE Tyldesley has revealed the secrets behind her sex scenes on new ITV drama Viewpoint as she ate salad for weeks and kissed her co-star with masks on.
The actress even joked how she'd delighted her husband by shaving her legs for the first time since lockdown.
After pointing out that some steamy moments didn't make it to the final cut, Catherine told This Morning: "I spent two weeks living on lettuce then I watched it back and thought that's it?
"Filming that [the sex scenes] was unusual because we wouldn't take our masks off until a take so kissing with a mask on – all kinds of weird.
"I went to shave my legs that morning and my husband went 'I haven't seen shaved legs since week one, this is wonderful.'"
She married personal trainer Tom Pitfield in 2016, and they share five-year-old son Alfie.
Viewers were thrilled last night when the former Coronation Street star made a return to ITV.
The 37-year-old appeared in the opening episode of the new drama which is about a woman who goes missing.
In the new mini-series – which plays out every night this week – Catherine plays Kate Tuckman, while actor Dominic Allburn plays her husband Carl.
On the face of it they look like the ideal couple, with Kate as the perfect school run mum with a sideline as a social media influencer, while Carl runs a successful business.
But behind the scenes, all is not quite as perfect.
Corrie fans immediately recognised Cath as the soap's former blonde bombshell Eva Price.
The former soap star left the show in 2018 after seven years on the cobbles.
The actress’ other television credits include Shameless, Holby City, Trollied and Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.
- Viewpoint continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
