TV presenters who stripped naked from Gail Porter to Julia Bradbury – but can you guess the reasons why?

THESE brave stars aren't afraid to bare all on TV. 

This week ex-Cbeebies star Sarah-Jane Honeywell recreated the topless pose which saw her get the sack ten years ago.


The presenter, now 47, got the boot from the kids' channel after she posed topless on a huge plate of food in Trafalgar Square for a Peta campaign to oppose eating meat.

To mark ten years since the stunt, Sarah-Jane recreated the pose on the roof of her home in Lincoln which she shares with ex-Hollyoaks actor hubby Ayden Callaghan and their two sons. 

She said: "There is so much speculation about how ‘this picture’ got me fired from CBeebies but the truth is there was already a producer that hated me and wanted to get rid of me.

"This picture merely lit the match to a bonfire that had already been built for me.

"I'm so grateful though and I now know, even when life doesn’t go the way you want it to, things can turn out better than you wished for anyway."

She went on: "I will always be impulsive (I either do or do nothing, there is no in between for me).”

Sarah isn’t the only celeb to strip off – be it for a good cause, or merely accidental.

Here we reveal the telly stars who famously got their kit off – and the varied reasons why.

Gail Porter

Gail, now 50, presented Children In Need, Top of the Pops, CITV and The Big Breakfast among other hit shows. 

In 1999, as part of a guerrilla marketing campaign for lads mag FHM, a nude Gail was projected onto the Houses of Parliament.

The image was used to promote FHM's 100 Sexiest Women – but Gail claims she had no idea they were going to do it.

She said: “I was asked to do a photoshoot and they said they were going to put it on the cover, which was like, ‘that’s rather nice’.

“I woke up one morning and heard my name on BBC News and there was my bottom."

Steph McGovern

Ex-BBC presenter Steph McGovern bared all on her Channel 4 show, Steph's Packed Lunch, in May this year. 

And the presenter, 39, convinced guests actress Gemma Atkinson, politician Alan Johnson, comedian Luke Kempner and chef John Whaite to follow her lead after a segment on the rise in naturism amongst younger people. 

As they hid their modesty with pillows, Gemma protested: "I didn't sign up for this."

Steph then quipped: "Right we better go before we see Alan's johnson."

Joel Dommett 

Sometimes the best TV nudity is accidental – as comic Joel learned the hard way. 

The Masked Singer presenter, 36, suffered a wardrobe malfunction last year on ITV2 show Hey Tracey!

Dressed as a ghost for Halloween, Joel was spooked when presenter Rita Simons tried to rip his costume off. 

But she was left red-faced after it emerged Joel was wearing nothing underneath. 

Kate Humble

Wildlife host Kate Humble got back to nature during an Off The Beaten Track segment on skinny-dipping. 

Kate, 52, braved the cold in a Welsh lake in 2018 which left her teeth chattering.

She previously told The Sun: "When nobody's around I love dancing with no clothes on."

Kate added that she's a keen naturist, saying: "I do like taking my clothes off and feeling at one with nature."

Julia Bradbury

Brave Julia decided to pose topless ahead of her mastectomy last month after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

On her Instagram, the Countryfile presenter, 51, bid goodbye to her left boob before the op and posted a breast cancer awareness ribbon alongside the post.

She wrote: "I'm going for my last walk in this body. I'm going for my last walk with these boobs.

“One of the best bits of advice I've received in the weeks of my breast cancer diagnosis (thank you) … is to say goodbye to my breast and to thank my body for all the sustenance, joy and life it has given me.”

Nadia Sawalha 

Loose woman Nadia let it all hang out when she skinny-dipped on holiday in 2019.

But the presenter had an important message about body confidence and loving yourself. 

The 56-year-old posted the pic to Instagram while on holiday with her daughters and husband Mark Adderley. 

She posted: "Whole next level in body confidence for me!!! I can’t believe it but I only swam flaming naked in the flaming pool today!!! This has never happened!!!"

Denise Van Outen 

Former Big Breakfast presenter Denise loved posing for lads mags in the Nineties. 

The West End star, 47, says she has "no regrets" over getting her kit off. 

She told The Sun this year: “I look back at them fondly, I have no regrets about the shoots. They were fun to do… I spent the Nineties having a lot of high points and lots of low points in my life. A lot of heartbreak and heartache.

“I always thought I just wanted to get through that but when I look back I think, actually, I had a brilliant time.”
