DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Nicolette Sheridan's saucy strip on American TV's MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL has been given the all clear by federal regulators.

The actress was seen dropping a flimsy towel that covered her chest during the pre-show telecast last November (04) and exposing herself to footballer Terrell Owens in a comedy skit, which outraged viewers.

Only Sheridan's upper back was exposed and no foul language was used but the skit led to a number of complaints from viewers, who felt the saucy routine was too much for Monday evening viewing.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) opened an investigation after receiving many complaints, but a five-member panel has unanimously ruled the segment did not violate federal indecency standards.
