THIS Shameless Blackpool landlady swapped red roses for red noses and bared all for Comic Relief.

Actress Alice Barry paid a cheeky tribute to the iconic film scene in American Beauty by posing naked with nothing but strategically placed noses to protect her modesty.

The Blackpool hotel owner, who shot to fame playing brothel-keeper Lillian Tyler in Channel 4 show Shameless said there was no time for blushes as she posed in her birthday suit.

She said: “The photo shoot was all in a day’s work really, what better cause to get my kit off for than for Comic Relief?

“I have to do all sorts of things for Shameless so I didn’t think twice about taking my clothes off in front of the crew.

Classy

“They were very supportive and I think it was tastefully done.

“I had an absolute ball and what an experience to be showered in Car Noses.

“I think I look better than the original – more classy and sophisticated,”

Alice has owned Barry’s bed and breakfast on Charnley Road Blackpool with her husband Patrick since December 2009. She added: “I think it’s really important to do your bit for charity.

“Patrick and I do lots of things for charity, especially Help For Heroes and we’ve had veterans come and stay with us.

“I’m glad if the picture helps draw attention to all the good work going on for Comic Relief.”

Other cast members from Shameless also mucked in to help.

They staged a red nose fight outside The Jockey pub with the Maguire clan taking on each other as well as their neighbours.
