Alan Carr's new talent show The Singer Takes It All promises to liven up Friday night TV over the coming weeks.
Forbes has got used to nude scenes
Michelle Forbes says she is used to nude scenes these days
Michelle Forbes says that stripping off for her role in True Blood is just "another day at work".
The star, 45, who plays Maryann Forrester in the vampire series, has got used to nude scenes.
She said: "I think by nature I am rather shy and rather modest but I was cured of a lot of that during this season of True Blood."
Michelle, who also starred in Lost and In Treatment, appeared naked in the road with a pig at the end of the first season of the show.
She said of the nudity: "It's done with such respect, there's an enormous amount of respect on set. It's done very tastefully even though the scenes are very raunchy.
"As a company we really look after each other, we protect each other's dignity and integrity so it wasn't as difficult.
"Like anything you get used to it. A lot of the orgy scenes, it really is just another day at work."
:: True Blood airs on Friday at 10pm on the FX Channel.
