Jane Seymour on posing for Playboy at 67: Actress talks stripping off and how her boob job filled the 'vacant space' left by her marriage
She became the oldest woman in history to pose for Playboy magazine earlier this month.
And Jane Seymour has opened up on stripping off for the publication, admitting she was 'thrilled' to be given the opportunity to represent her generation in the sexy spread.
Speaking as a guest panellist on ITV's Loose Women on Wednesday, the actress, 67, also revealed how undergoing a breast augmentation filled the 'vacant space' left by the demise of her marriage to businessman David Flynn in 1992.

Jane looked far younger than her years in the revealing Playboy shoot, posing in her bedroom wearing little more than a furry pink stole and matching negligee.
But the British star admitted she had her reservations when the famous men's magazine came calling, telling Ruth Langsford, Linda Robson and Janet Street-Porter: 'I was doing a series, I got the call, I didn't want to do it.
'Then I thought I have control over the pics, and they don't want me to be nude. This is actually really cool.

Jane is mother to four children: Katherine, 36, Sean, 32, and twins, Kristopher and John, 22.
The actress also discussed her battle with body positivity, revealing she chose to go under the knife for a boob job following her divorce from businessman David Flynn in 1992, because of the 'pressure of losing her marriage'.
But she insisted she would never have too much facial surgery, because it could cause problems with her acting career.

Baring all: The Golden Globe winning actress also chatted about her brush with death after suffering from pre-eclampsia, as she fell pregnant with twins through IVF at the age of 45
Jane also revealed she nearly died after falling pregnant with her twin sons through IVF at the age of 45, after she suffered from pre-eclampsia.
She said: 'I just recently met and married [actor] James Keach, I'd been low, he felt he wasn't able to raise a child fully due to divorce, I felt the only thing I could give him back was a baby.
'I lost several pregnancies, eventually I got really lucky, I got warned about the health issues. I accepted it would be a multiple birth, two for one.
'It was pre-eclampsia, which killed the real Jane Seymour. It was diagnosed quite late, I was given an emergency c-section. They didn't tell me until three days later that I nearly died having them and they nearly died.
'For four months they had heart monitors on them, it was really scary. I would say that probably if you haven't met your mate before 40, you should probably freeze your eggs, or think of another option.'

Jane first rose to fame in 1973 after appearing in the James Bond film Live And Let Die alongside the late Roger Moore, who passed away last May of cancer at the age of 89.
Speaking about her relationship with the British actor, Jane revealed she last saw Roger just a few months before his death.
'I was at some event in England, I was at [James Bond producer] Barbara Broccoli's table, I asked if Roger was there, they said he'd been a bit quiet in the house, I had 40 minutes to talk to him, there was some sort of unfinished business,' she said.
'He apologised for a Practical joke when I was 20. I had a habit of saying ''can you pass me this'' so when I walked over for lunch everyone just picked up their trays and walked away from me.
'He didn't say we were just kidding. He apologised a few months before he died.'
