EX EMMERDALE and Coronation Street star Denise Black has stripped completely naked as she admitted that she is "proud" of her body.
The 63-year-old star bravely dared to bare for a mirror selfie, which she posted to her Instagram page.
In the snap, Denise is completely naked with her back to the camera for the full-length portrait.
Her bare bottom is on display, with the actress turning her head as she took the pic on her mobile phone.
She opened up about body confidence in the post's caption, writing: "I have decided to post this. I am very proud of my body at 63 – and this after a wasted lifetime of finding fault. Life’s too short (not me, LIFE).
"Enjoy it all! Even the pain. All of it."
Denise went on to promote her upcoming play – jokingly reassuring fans that she will be fully dressed when she takes to the stage.
She shared: "I am so very very happy to be working in ‘Mum’ by @morganlloydmalcolm directed by @abstergraham and soon to be performing @theatreroyalplymouth and @sohotheatre It’s a Belter of a play. Hope you can come (and don’t worry, I’ll be wearing clothes)."
Denise's followers were blown away by the selfie, with one writing: "Incredible and fabulous, quite right to be proud!! 👌🏼"
