Helen Mirren revealed as naturist of the year

Helen Mirren has been named British Naturist of the Year for her love of stripping off.

The 59-year-old actress is famed for her willingness to bare all, and now she has been awarded the title by the British Naturism organisation.

Chairman Mick Ayers said: "When one of Britain's best-loved and successful actresses is happy to talk openly about her love of naturism, it helps our cause no end. I am delighted we have been able to say thanks by making this award."

Dame Helen said: "Many thanks to British Naturism for this great honour. I do believe in naturism and am at my happiest on a nude beach with people of all ages and races. . . . It's so unsexual and so liberating."
