Irish actress Sharon Horgan has revealed her husband doesn't like watching her get close to her co-stars on screen.

The comic, who writes and stars in hit sitcom Catastrophe, said her other half Jeremy Rainbird gets uncomfortable when he sees her act out love scenes with her cast-mate and co-writer Rob Delaney.

"[Jeremy] quite enjoys seeing bits of our lives that I've taken wholesale," she said.

"I don't think he finds it that easy to watch when we're like, having sex.

"But apart from that, my husband genuinely loves the show. It's the thing I've done that he likes the best."

Sharon, who is a sister of Irish rugby legend Shane Horgan (pictured), said the couple's young daughter Sadhbh also annoys Jeremy about her relationship with the American comic.

"My eldest daughter has started winding him up," Sharon revealed.

"She'll be like, 'Mummy, what was it like to kiss Rob?'. She's 11-and-a-half. She knows exactly what she's doing."

The Meath native and Boston-born Delaney have been friends for years.

Even after working together for quite some time, mum-of-two Sharon said she never grows tired of the actor's jokes.

"It's really hard to describe what you find funny about the person you write with every day," she told the Los Angeles Times

"It's like his sense of humour is just in my DNA now. When you write a show like this you have to be intimate and you can't be scared of telling each other disgusting things.
