Olivia Lee had to look "really, really disgusting" in the new series of 'Dirty Sexy Funny'.
The actress plays an array of characters in the comedy sketch show and says she and producers wanted to push the boundaries in the latest run because they wanted viewers to still be entertained.
Talking about the hidden camera stunt series, Olivia exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "We've got a load of new characters. We've got prosthetics now. We've been really experimental with the characters - we've got like an old woman and we've just taken it that step further and really tried to experiment with it. Because I was more recognisable, we had to make so I wasn't as recognisable this year. So that involved me having to look really, really disgusting! Really hideous. I had to wear wigs, funny teeth. The first series was quite kind of glamorous so we've really tried to go the other way now."
Olivia also says it was harder filming the second series because more people knew who she was.
She said: "I got recognised a hell of a lot more this year. It was tricky, much trickier. But what can you do? It's the price you pay I suppose."
As well as her TV show Olivia can still be seen on stage and will be performing two exclusive sets at the luxurious Haagen-Dazs Boudoir in London on Sunday 31 July between 11 - 4pm. Entry is free and open to the public. Visit facebook.com/haagendazs for more details.
