Want further proof of Gavin and Stacey star Larry Lamb’s well-documented past as a insatiable lothario?
Well, how about seducing a nun who had gone 18 years without any bedroom gymnastics? Yep, apparently so.
Never one to adopt ‘Too Much Information’ as a life rule, the 69-year-old actor has told the Sunday Mirror about his dalliance with an ex-nun called Therese back in the heady days of the 1970s.
“It was madness,” he laughed. “I was pretty rampant back then, but, as she used to laugh, ‘Larry, I’ve got 18 years to catch up – 18 lost years.
“We spent a lot of time together that summer and I think I might have helped her with about nine of them.”
The pair met after Larry’s marriage to second wife Jacquie Parris collapsed.
”Therese had been one of 12 children born into a deeply religious French Canadian family,” he continued.
“As was the custom, two of these children were designated as gifts to the church. One of her brothers went into the priesrthood and Therese, who was already a ‘very, very sexually aware teenager’, was locked behind the walls of a closed convent.
“The sexual torment of a life of abstinence was unbearable,” he concluded.
Larry to the rescue, eh?
In other Larry news, the former EastEnder, who kicks off his campaign to be crowned King of the Jungle on ITV1 at 9pm tonight, has been applauded for springing into action to save a fellow constestant yesterday.
He performed a ‘Baywatch-style rescue’ on poor Scarlett Moffatt when she fell out of her canoe en route to camp.
Gogglebox star Scarlett admitted: “I’ve been on a pedalo but that’s where my skills start and end.”
A show source said Larry’s rescue was “remarkable.”
