Angela Griffin brought a whole new meaning to the words ‘dirty sex’ when she filmed a raunchy scene for her new TV show.
The actress was hoisted onto a wheelie bin by co-star Adrian Bower as they acted out a sex scene for forthcoming comedy series Mount Pleasant.
The Sky1 series sees Griffin as an office worker named Shelley trying to spice up her marriage with Manchester binman Greg, played by Bower.

As they filmed the scene in a Manchester back alley, the actors struggled to keep their composure and kept bursting into laughter.
The sequence sees Griffin’s character Shelley’s sexy suit lifted up to reveal her suspenders as her overalls-clad spouse hoists her onto a bin for some post-watershed fun.
Their romp then comes to a premature halt when it starts raining heavily, prompting them to bring the action inside.
When the photos were first published on Mother’s Day, Griffin, 34, admitted her mother wasn’t too impressed.

She tweeted: ‘After looking in today’s paper, my mother is particularly proud… Not!’
When asked by co-star Daniel Ryan to elaborate, she explained: ‘It’s funny really. Me and Adey papped shagging on bins the other night.’
Mount Pleasant, which debuts on Sky1 in the autumn, stars another ex-Corrie star Sally Lindsay in the lead role as Lisa.
Lisa, who is described as a ‘a real woman in a real marriage living in a real part of Manchester’, has no idea that another woman Kate (Lisa Tarbuck) is trying it on with her husband Dan (Ryan).

But Lisa finds herself also attracted to handsome young bachelor Jack (Owen McDonnell).
Playing her parents are TV stalwarts Pauline Collins and Bobby Ball.
The eight-part comedy drama is written by Sarah Hooper, who has previously worked on episodes of Shameless.
