Dame Judi Dench has revealed she swims naked in her pool when she’s alone.

The icon of stage and screen, 86, claimed on Wednesday that she finds skinny dipping is ‘just heaven’ but she’s keen not to get caught in the act.

‘I don’t want to be caught at it!’ Dame Judi Dench, 86, revealed in a podcast on Wednesday that she swims naked in her pool when she’s alone and claimed skinny dipping is ‘just heaven’

‘I had to do it in a film, Langrishe, Go Down, in a passionate scene with Jeremy Irons where she puts cream on her nipples and he licks it off.

‘And after we did the scene, we came out and it was teatime and the caterers had made meringues! That was very, very nice for us.’

Going back to the topic of skinny dipping, she added: ‘Swimming naked is very good. 

‘I do that because we are lucky as we have a pool and you can quite happily do it sometimes if somebody isn’t going to come around suddenly. I don’t want to be caught at it.’

She also revealed in the new interview that she got emotional when filming her final Bond film – because she only got to spend one night in Scotland. 

Speaking candidly on the podcast she said: ‘I cried because we were told we were going to Scotland for three weeks, 

‘We went one morning, we filmed, and we were back on the 7:30 plane that night.’ 

The release of the latest Bond film, No Time to Die, has been delayed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it is currently slated to be released on September 30.
