But the former Telford College student, seen sporting a shaved head for her latest role, says she soon forgot she didn’t have any clothes on.

Gillan, best known for her role as Amy Pond in Dr Who, plays novelist Jane Lockhart hit by writer’s block in the film.

She said: “I was really nervous beforehand - naturally I knew I’d have to sit there all day without any clothes on.

“But actually it was fine, they strategically covered me up with flesh coloured bits of material, and also it was a closed set so there weren’t loads of crew guys walking around. And everyone was just very respectful and by the end I’d forgotten that I didn’t have any clothes on.”

She also told how she watched as many Romcoms as she could in preparation for the role.

Not Another Happy Ending is out on Friday.
