Cheeky! Darren Day, 48, and his wife Stephanie Dooley revealed they are starring in new show Rita, Sue and Bob Too together - during which Darren will be stripping to his bare bottom
Talking to the show hosts, the blonde laughed: 'I've had it confirmed that you'll be showing your bare bottom every night on stage. I can confirm it will be out... but it's a very nice bottom!'
Darren and Emmerdale star Stephanie, who have been married for nine years, are set to star alongside each other in the new production of Rita, Sue and Bob Too - based on the film of the same name.
The actor has signed up to play love rat Bob, while his wife plays the character's wife Michelle in the show, starting at the Theatre Royal in November.
Can't have it all: The actress later joked that Darren is a terrible house husband, stating: 'He can't work a washer and doesn't know what a tumble dryer is!'
Set in Bradford, Darren joked about his anxiety over the Northern accent of the role, having to go against his Yorkshire-born wife.
The theatre star said: 'I've lived up North for 11 years so if I don't nail the accent I'll be in big trouble with the in-laws!'
Darren and Stephanie married in 2007 after meeting in panto the previous year, and have two children together, Madison and Dalton.

However despite having two children and leading a normal and happy family life, Stephanie admitted that Darren is not the best when it comes to household activities and chores.
She scoffed during the interview: 'He can't work a washer, doesn't know what a tumble dryer is and it took 5 years to figure out how to make a cup of tea.'
Darren failed to deny the claims, simply laughing as he changed the subject back to the production: 'It'll be great to work with my wife. I haven't been this busy for 10 years.'
Busy man: Darren also anticipates the release of new movie White Island, which sees him return to one of his famed bad-boy roles
It certainly is a busy year for the actor, who announced after the appearance that he would also be appearing in the UK tour of Grease as Teen Angel.
Taking to his Twitter account after the lunchtime show, the former CBB star said: 'I'm very happy to announce that I'll be playing the role of Teen Angel for the first 2 months on the new UK tour of Grease next year Xx ...' - hitting the stage in Manchester, Liverpool, Southend, Oxford and Wimbledon.
Adding to his busy schedule, Darren also anticipates the release of new movie White Island, which sees him return to one of his famed bad-boy roles.

The actor gushed of the movie, which has been deemed 'brilliant' by comic actor James Corden: 'It was great to play a real villain, I had to get it out of my system. I've been a fan of soap villians - I loved Dirty Den and Steve McFadden, Ray WInstone, Ross Kemp are all my idols.
'It's about a drug deal that goes and it was shot in Ibiza. My wife spent time there during filming, it's beautiful. Think of the comedy Mitchells.'
With such a jam-packed career ahead of him, Darren admitted that his new-found success has all been down to his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother.

She said: 'I'm 100 per cent sure he wouldn't go off the rails. He better not let me down now. He's got family He's got support, he's got his children, he's got everything.'
