It’s set to premiere in the UK on Tuesday September 4th at 9pm on BBC1, and Aussie Collette, 45, plays sexually frustrated therapist Joy Richards – who goes on a bonking spree.

The actress said she’s proud to romp on British telly over the course of six weekly episodes, admitting: “Someone told me I was the first woman to have an orgasm on the BBC… and I’m happy to take the accolade.”

Even Auntie’s drama boss Piers Wenger has admitted he is “terrified” by the potential response from viewers.

He said: “We’ve never seen anything like it on BBC One.”

Joy is married to Alan, played by Steven Mackintosh, and demands an open marriage following a fling.

Images from the new drama show her in the throes of her orgasm and post-coitus with a number of different partners.

In one of the show’s steamiest scenes, she is sexually stimulated by a policeman in a car.

The actress said she was happy to throw herself into the role: “You can’t half-heartedly act that, you have to make it feel real.

“You can tell when you’re watching something if it’s not energetically right.“I had no reservations, sex is a part of life and it’s a very lifelike show.

“It’s just nice for it to be out in the open.

“I was nervous at first but by the end of it I had no concerns.”

The show is a Netflix co-production from the team that made Dr Foster and is due to air next month. It also stars The Halcyon’s Steven Mackintosh, 51, as Joy’s husband Alan and Fresh Meat’s Zawe Ashton, 34.

Luke Snellin, one of the drama’s directors, said: “The most interesting part of it is it being on BBC One.

“The audience that BBC One brings is the perfect audience to be challenged.”
