Angus Deayton has landed a cheeky film role - baring his behind in romantic comedy Swinging With The Finkels.
The former Have I Got News For You presenter stars alongside The Office's Martin Freeman and Mandy Moore, who play a young couple who try to spice up their marriage by meeting other couples to swing with.
Angus is shown in the trailer brushing his teeth and telling Martin's character: "I'm not gay or anything. But if you want to I would..." before walking out of the bathroom to reveal he is only wearing his pyjama top and is baring his bottom for the camera.
The film, directed by Jonathan Newman, also features appearances from Pineapple Dance Studios' Louis Spence and Zoolander's Jerry Stiller.
Martin and Mandy play Alvin and Ellie Finkel, whose best friends, played by Jonathan Silverman and former Home And Away star Melissa George, see their marriage hit the rocks when one of them has an affair, causing the Finkels to worry about losing the spark in their own relationship.
Angus, who starred in hit BBC sit com One Foot In The Grave, was fired as host of Have I Got News For You in 2002 and has since done some acting and presenting work, including hosting Hell's Kitchen.
Swinging With The Finkels is released in cinemas on June 17.
