It's a Sin star Olly Alexander has revealed his mother's reaction to his sex scenes in the recent Channel 4 series.
The Years & Years singer took on the role of Ritchie Tozer in the acclaimed drama, which follows the lives of a group of gay men and their friends during the AIDS epidemic.
The show did include some more intimate scenes, though thankfully Olly managed to give his mum enough preparation.
"Yes, I spoke to her and said, 'There are some intimate scenes,'" he told Cosmopolitan. "She didn't bat an eyelid and said, 'Because you told me, I knew what to expect.' She's the best."
The star went on to admit that filming those scenes was "nerve-wracking", though intimacy coordinators made things much easier.
"I went into it thinking I'd be fine, and confident with my body," he recalled. "But then I got more nervous. We had intimacy coordinators working on the project and they were revolutionary. You choreograph it like a dance and go through everything with the other performer before you get to set.
"It's crazy that, in the past, you'd just show up to shoot a scene and figure it out," Olly added.
Meanwhile, creator Russell T Davies recently revealed that there won't be a second series of It's a Sin, explaining: "It was lovely. It said everything I wanted to say. The only long-running thing I've ever done is Doctor Who and that's because Doctor Who is designed to be long running."
It's a Sin is now available to stream in its entirety on All 4.
