Mr Flibble Talks To... All Dressed Up
Chloë Annett took over the role of Kochanski when the character became a permanent fixture in series VII. While she soon ditched the PVC trousers, the character's neuroses continued. Aspects of her character that Chloë would like to see more of...

Let's talk about sexiness, then. The photo-shoot you did for FHM led to you being voted 98th sexiest woman that year...

Wow! But it was just after Marge Simpson, though, so I'm taking it with a massive lump of salt. But I'd like to show off about it. I was so chuffed.

The FHM photo-shoot I did in about an hour, because the photographer, Barry Hollywood - who's fantastic, he was lovely - was photographing Precious and me. I was supposed to be in at 2, and they'd been doing it all morning. At 2 o'clock I turned up and they were all in the mirror, looking nowhere near finished.

So it got to 6 o'clock, and I had to wrap up by 7, so that's when we did it. Bam, bam, bam. It worked out really well, actually, because we did it so quickly.

This year a similar place is being held by former 11 o'Clock Show host Daisy Donovan...

Daisy Donovan! Oh my God! I used to do Oil of Ulay commercials, and I remember doing an Oil of Ulay commercial by her father, Terrence Donovan, and she did one with me.

And now you've done a shoot for the RD site...

This one was great fun. Unfortunately I was a little bit under the weather, but the photographer was great and we had good fun. Kind of outrageous. Tastefully outrageous - the furthest I'd ever go is what I did for FHM - that was saucy enough.

Are there any amongst the new shoot that you have a preference for?

Definitely the cowboy one. The cowboy one was brilliant! I was so tired by that time, and it was about 9 o'clock at night. We just had a laugh, we had blaring music. I looked ridiculous in the outfit, but I loved the cowboy hat. The cowboy hat was enormous. The photographs have come out really well.

Hot-pants! They put me in hot-pants and I refused to come out of the changing room! I was so embarrassed, I've never worn hot-pants in my life - and I don't think I ever will again. (Laughs) But they look good.

All the boys got to do Gunmen of the Apocalypse, of course - which you weren't around for. Would you like to do something like that?

I'd love to! Yeah, Calamity Jane or Annie Oakley or something! I would have loved that!
