Ex-Baywatch babe Angelica Bridges is delighted she only had to wear a skimpy bathing suit for the show - because she loathes wearing clothes.

As a child, Angelica, who played LIEUTENANT TAYLOR WALSH in the popular programme, would shed her clothes the minute she was out of her mother's sight - and treated her neighbours to the sight of her bare bottom bouncing down the street.

She reveals, "Even then (childhood) I hated clothes. Mom used to dress me up in jeans and sweatshirts, but as soon as I was out the door all that went on the floor and my sweet little butt was lighting up my friend's yard!

"Incidentally, people are always asking me if my butt's real. My answer is, 'Of course it's real, it's just mighty big and round for such a diminutive little girl like me.'"
