Bed of noses for Shameless star

Shameless madam Lillian Tyler trades red roses for red noses as she recreates a famous scene from American Beauty.

The Chatsworth estate brothel-keeper is pictured almost naked except for a few strategically placed noses, in support of Comic Relief.

Cast members from the Channel 4 show also staged a red nose fight outside The Jockey pub with the Maguire clan taking on each other as well as their neighbours.

Show stalwart Lillian - played by Alice Barry - put her twist on the racy scene from Oscar-winning film American Beauty, which originally featured actress Mena Suvari.

"What better cause to get my kit off than for Comic Relief?" said Barry.

"I had an absolute ball and what an experience to be showered in Car Noses. I think I look better than the original - more classy and sophisticated," she joked.
