ACTRESS Alice Barry proved she really has ‘no shame’ as she recreated a scene from the 1980s film Flashdance.

The Burnley-born star, best known for her role as Lillian Tyler in Channel Four’s Shameless, donned the famous leotard for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day appeal.

The 66-year-old, wearing her signature glasses, did her best to imitate Jennifer Beals, who starred in the 1983 romantic drama.

It is not the first time Alice, formerly from Lowerhouse, has done something raunchy for Comic Relief.

In 2011 she stripped off for her own version of American Beauty with strategically placed red noses to cover her dignity, while last year she performed as a policewoman to Outside by George Michael on Let’s Dance for Comic Relief.

Alice said: “I’ve had great fun posing in my leotard and being showered by red noses, but I always seem to end up half-naked and on the floor for Red Nose Day.”
