1980s TV stars The Krankies have revealed details about their swinging private lives during the height of their success.

Ian and Janette Tough, 64, who found fame on children's TV series Crackerjack, confessed to having an "anywhere, anytime" approach to sex in a detailed interview with BBC Radio Scotland's Edi Stark.

The duo told one story about how they "nearly ended up in France" after a romantic session on a boat and claimed that they were always aware of each other's sexual antics.

"We weren't behind each other's backs. We knew what each other was sort of up to," said Janette.

Ian commented: "Today it would be in the papers instantly. In those days people were very good."

The pair also discussed a bar fight with magician Paul Daniels that followed a show in Jersey.

"I was a bit punchy when I was in my 30s," said Ian. "I think [Paul] must have said something to contradict what I was saying. I just went bang and he went off the chair and the whole bar applauded and said it was time somebody did that."

The Krankies are starring in panto Robinson Crusoe at Glasgow's Clyde Auditorium this Christmas alongside Torchwood's John Barrowman.
