ANDY Murray better watch out!
Trading her fictional boudoir duties for a small spot of tennis, Alice Barry – known to many as the Chatsworth Estate’s very own local madam Lillian Tyler in Channel 4’s hit show ‘Shameless’ – has bared her cheeky side for Sport Relief.
Fortunately for rest of us we don’t have to go bottoms up to do our bit. All we have to do is walk, skip or jog along the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Manchester on Sunday, March 25.
Actress Alice, who also owns Barry’s hotel in Charnley Road, in central Blackpool, was able to take a well-earned break from the dysfunctional lives of the Shameless family to pull on her Sport Relief socks and strike a pose in a classic Athena tennis girl picture.
She said: “What better reasons to get my kit off than for Sport Relief. I had an absolutely amazing time and I invite anyone to join in the fun with me by entering the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief mile in Manchester.”
This is not the first time Alice has been seen in saucy pictures. She was snapped for Comic Relief in 2011 wearing nothing but red noses when she mimicked the pose of Mena Suvari on a bed of roses in American Beauty.
Alice added: “It wasn’t as sexy as my American Beauty pose, but I hope people enjoy it.”
From David Walliams’ Thames swim to Eddie Izzard’s 43 marathons in 51 days, Sport Relief has a unique history of brave celebrities taking on gruelling physical challenges to raise cash and improve lives. This year, more than one million people are expected to pull up their Sport Relief socks and take part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile to raise vital funds for vulnerable people across the UK and throughout the world’s poorest countries.
