NIP/TUCK star Julian McMahon is often tempted to ask female fans to disrobe when they confuse him for the plastic surgeon he plays on the small screen.

The Australian actor, who plays DOCTOR CHRISTIAN TROY in the hit American TV drama, regularly has to stop himself exploiting queries made by viewers desperate for his expert verdict on the state of their bodies.

McMahon, 36, says, "Girls say to me, 'Do you think I need any work done?' I'm tempted to reply, 'For me to judge that, you're going to have to take off all your clothes, my dear.'

"But you have to be professional about these things. I also get guys running up to me with their wives and saying, 'Can you give her a t** job?'"
