As fans of Loose Women may know, panellist Andrea McLean has been branching out into the world of acting for a movie entitled, A Landscape of Lies…
In the film, Andrea plays the role of “sexually liberated therapist Dr Andrea Grey” who finds herself in a steamy clinch with a character who’s played by Hollyoaks star, Christina Baily.
However, during an interview with Closer magazine this week, Andrea revealed that the kiss was so far out of her “comfort zone,” she downed half a bottle of bourbon before filming it!
Former GMTV weather girl Andrea said, “I had to do scenes that took me out of my comfort zone and I loved it.
“It feels liberating to reinvent myself – this is going to be my best year, after such a rubbish time…
“I had to neck half a bottle of Jack Daniel’s to get over my nerves.
“Christina was lovely and we got it over with quickly, but it was funny how all the male crew suddenly appeared.
“I had to kiss a few guys in the film, too, which was odd, as I’ve only ever had two boyfriends – and I married both of them.”
But it seems that since Andrea’s split from husband Steve Toms was announced earlier this year, she hasn’t been short of offers – of all kinds – from men!
Andrea revealed that a “high-profile married man” had asked her out, but she told him where to go.
She said, “He wasn’t happy at all when I gave him the brush-off via email, which made me feel very uncomfortable.
“Thinking about dating is daunting and I’m nowhere near ready to start another relationship after feeling so hurt by my marriage breakdown, but I’m enjoying being single.
“I’m feeling sexier than ever, but I’m not ready for love.”
Good on ya Andrea!
