Martin Clunes raised eyebrows on morning TV with his risque jokes about his sex life.
The Doc Martin and former Men Behaving Badly star, 57, was asked whether he was a “romantic fellow” and planning anything for Valentine’s Day, on ITV show Lorraine.
“Yeah, oh yes,” he replied. “Oh yes, we never miss that one, yes, yes!”
The TV host replied: “Glad to hear it.”
But Clunes then offered: “I do remember a time I gave my wife a pearl necklace in the Maldives, and that’s the truth.”
And he added: “It’s just a funny story. Next year I’m going to take her up the Mekong Delta with a bit of luck.”
Lorraine Kelly told him: “Lovely, that’s really romantic,” before she added: “Moving swiftly on.”
He also joked to the TV host that it was “sexist” to show off a snap of Poldark heartthrob Aidan Turner with his top off.
“That’s sexist. I could have you in a tribunal,” he quipped. “If I’d said, ‘Show that picture with her baps out’.”
Kelly told him: “He’s not got his winky out. He’s just got his chest out.”
