In 2006, the actress caused quite the stir when she released her autobiography Confessions Of A Bad Girl, revealing several steamy confessions during her life.

From an affair with Bob Geldof to hopes of romping in a field when she's 85, Daily Star has rounded up the star's wildest confessions.

'Sex is better in your 50s'

The Emmerdale icon confessed that she prefers having sex in her fifties because she has less insecurities.

She made the racy admission during a chat with Closer Magazine as she opened up about how to maintain a healthy sex life.

The former Loose Women star told the publication: "I have none of the insecurities I had when I was younger and men pick up on that."

"I rely on experience rather than looks," she added.

Bob Geldof affair

In Claire's autobiography Confessions Of A Bad Girl, she made the shocking confession that she had an affair with Boomtown Rat singer Bob Geldof in the late 1970s.

The star recalled meeting the music legend when she was 17 at one of his gigs, revealing how there were "fireworks" during their sexual encounters.

The affair reportedly lasted five years and occurred while his ex-wife Paula Yates was pregnant with their daughter Fifi Trixibelle.

Claire added that they were "irresistibly drawn to one another," adding: "He made me feel like a woman."

The soap legend caused quite the stir with the autobiography but insisted she would have mentioned Geldof regardless of whether he was famous.

She said: "I would have written about him whether he was famous or not. I'm not intending to cause any trouble – but I couldn't have left him out as he was one of the biggest loves of my life."

Racy scenes

While she has made plenty of confessions about her sex life away from the cameras, Claire confessed in an interview last year that she was glad she no longer had to do sex scenes on camera.

The actress has acted out plenty of intimate scenes during her time on the ITV soap as her character has four marriages and numerous affairs under her belt.

While filming the early stages of her affair with now-husband Will Taylor, Claire explained that there had been no physical contact between the pair due to the filming restrictions put in place because of Covid.

She told The Sun: "There is talk of her and Will but thankfully bed scenes are forbidden because of social distancing. I got out of that one.

“I’m glad I don’t have to do bed scenes. It was bad enough when I was 25 but now? No!"

The soap star added: “I’m in my late fifties and would like a few less fat rolls and fewer lines. So let’s not. Let’s use our imagination instead.”

Frankie Dettori romance

Claire's autobiography also alluded to her relationship with with jockey Frankie Dettori, 51.

The Strictly Come Dancing star was reportedly 26 when she first laid eyes on the Italian-born star, revealing there was "an instant spark" between them.

In one steamy confession about their romance, the Celebrity Big Brother star claimed she couldn't resist when he began kissing her passionately.

She penned: "He was gorgeous. Our first night was amazing. He might have been young but he knew what he was doing and kept me up for most of the night."

"We'd always go out for dinner then back to my house, but sometimes splurge on a hotel," she added.

Revealing more details about their hotel nights, she added: "Once we made so much mess, with a drunken food fight and a flooded bathroom, that Frankie had to pay a pounds 500 cleaning bill."

Field romp

After admitting that she enjoys sex more in her 50s, Claire went on to say that she hopes her active sex life extends to her mid 80s.

Speaking more about her approach to sex in later years, Claire told Closer Magazine: "There are times when you don't want to be swinging from the chandeliers, but there's also no reason you can't be romping in a field at 85."

The Corrie actress added: "It's about releasing endorphins to make you feel good, and who doesn't want that?"
