Jane McDonald isn't afraid to get her kit off if it's all in the name of cultural traditions, and she did just that in her most recent travel show, Lost in Japan.
The 60 year old former Loose Women star stripped naked to bathe in a natural pool at Mount Fuji in the Far East.
She can be seen with her brunette locks piled on top of her head as she swims out in the pool and overlooks a stunning view beyond the natural rock formations framing the edge of the water.
Speaking about the daring task, Jane said: “They want me to experience it as a novice, so that’s entirely what I do and I love the fact that they say ‘right this is what we’re doing today’.
“So I got my kit off! The poor cameraman – I did feel for him.
“In our culture everything is covered, but if you go to a bath in Japan you have to take everything off – that was a bit of a shock!”
The travelogue show will air its first episode on Channel 5 on 25 August, and viewers will get to see her trying on Kimonos – the traditional Japanese dress – as well as try sumo wrestling and visiting a robot cafe.
Jane, who sadly lost her beloved fiancé Eddie Rothe to lung cancer in 2021, gave a very life-affirming reason as to why she chose to strip off.
She said: “I thought to myself I am never going to look this good again, I’m the youngest I’m ever going to be and tomorrow I’ll be a day older!
“Every day is a bonus and we’ve got to remember that, every day that we are here is a bonus.
“While I can do things I’m going to do them because there will be a time when I can’t. If I’ve learnt anything over the last ten years, it’s do it while you can.
“That’s my advice to everyone, most people say ‘Oh we’ll wait to do this together or wait for that’ just do it while we can.”
Jane first rose to fame in 1998, when she appeared on BBC series The Cruise, and has gone on to work on the likes of Loose Women and a couple of her own series, including Holidaying with Jane McDonald and Jane McDonald and Friends.
She’s also had a successful music career after launching her first album, which shot straight to number one in the charts, in 1998.
Earlier this year, she stepped in to replace scandal-hit Phillip Schofield as the host of the British Soap Awards, after he stepped down from presenting duties on This Morning in May.
