Veteran actress DAME Judi Dench finds it hard to keep her clothes on during her acting roles - even when the script doesn't require her to bare all.

The revered screen star manages to remain covered up in her latest movie, the bawdy MRS HENDERSON PRESENTS, but admits a string of wardrobe malfunctions have left her acting career littered with accidental exposes.

She says, "I've done it all before. Even when I wasn't supposed to!

"I remember one particular production of HENRY VI when I came on stage with my bra attached to my dress and a little more on display than I had intended.

"That was possibly my most embarrassing experience in the theatre."
