The 41-year-old actress has decided to grow her body hair in preparation for the second series of the historical BBC drama 'Gentleman Jack', in which Suranne plays the 19th-century industrialist and lesbian Anne Lister.

A source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "It was awkward and problematic at first, and her husband was rather taken aback.

"But they have both got used to the idea now, and she actually finds not trimming any body hair quite liberating."

Suranne previously admitted that she and Sophie Rundle bonded while doing lesbian sex scenes for 'Gentleman Jack'.

The actress explained that she had serious "chemistry" with the 'Bodyguard' actress - so much so they filmed the intimate moments as if "no one else was in the room".

Suranne shared: "We used the camera to come in on us and find intimate moments, which was really great, because we were able to just play that between us like no one else was in the room.

"By the end me and Sophie were like two nans with a cup of tea. Like, covers off, hanging out and it was great.

"But we needed to get to know each other to be able to do that.

"We had a 'chemistry read' first and when Sophie was cast, I knew straight away, 'That's my girl'.

"Mine and Sophie's chemistry grew as you see it in real time, throughout the eight episodes."
