Suranne Jones’s TV arm bush tactics over in a flash

SURANNE JONES’S latest TV challenge was truly the pits.

The Doctor Foster star grew out her armpit hair to play 19th century lesbian diarist Anne Lister in Gentleman Jack — and it was all for nothing.

‘I couldn’t do my nails and had to grow my armpit hair,’ she told the Radio Times.

‘I did go quite method with that… and then, the bugger of it, there’s no shot of my armpit hair! You see half a second of it, so I’m like, “Right, I’m not doing that again”.’

The 40-year-old returned to her glamorous ways for date night with hubby Laurence Akers at a Bafta after-party on Sunday.
