Billie Piper has jested that neighbours consider her to be "filth" due to her role in Secret Diary Of A Call Girl.

The 28-year-old, who plays prostitute Belle De Jour in the series, joked that locals in her West Sussex village have struggled to separate truth from fiction and have accused her of leading actor husband Laurence Fox astray.

She told Style: "Laurence is the hero, because he’s in [ITV detective series] Lewis. He’s so famous in our village and his fanclub is considerably older. They adore him and see me as his tainted, mucky wife.

"Honestly, they’re not big on me. I think they see him as muddying himself with 'that filth'. It can get quite cold. The looks I get off some of the older guys in the street. Some of them like to think you’re a prostitute for real. No, I’m an actress playing a prostitute."

Piper has stated that the upcoming series of Call Girl will include "weird" sex scenes.
