Sophie Rundle is all for sex scenes as long as an intimacy coordinator is involved.

The 35-year-old actress has performed racy scenes in TV's 'Gentleman Jack' and 'Peaky Blinders', and she feels it was important to have someone else there to act as a safeguard.

She told the Radio Times podcast: “Putting in intimacy coordinators as an element of safeguarding is really important.

“Having someone assigned to oversee the process is vital because it allows for a neutral third party and anonymity if you feel uncomfortable.

“Women are allowed to be sexual. We’re not saying no more sex scenes.

“Can we do them in a way that isn’t just titillating for someone else to watch? There are more interesting ways of exploring that narrative than just boobs.”

The 'Bodyguard' star also spoke out about how she doesn't feel it's right for an actress who hasn't had a child yet to play a mother.

She said: “I’m a mother and I’m 35 – but I’ve been playing mothers since I was 23. With my 23-year-old body that had never had a kid, while holding a baby in my arms. That’s got to start changing.”
