Torchwood star John Barrowman says that the show’s next series will be the sexiest yet – with “man sex” and “full-on” nudity.

The 44-year-old star said ardent fans know his character Captain Jack Harkness likes men and women.

He told Press Association: “I’m naked in one episode – I am full-on naked. I am bumping and grinding in this one. I am having man sex.

“The true die-hard fans know Jack is omnisexual – he likes men and women.

“People who tune into this series will just think Jack is gay, because he just has full-on man sex. It was really fun.

“One day, I get to shoot a helicopter and save the world, and a couple of days later, I get to have sex with a 24-year-old. It’s the most perfect job in the world.”

This series, named Torchwood: Miracle Day, has a larger cast and budget due to BBC Wales partnering with US entertainment network Starz.

The show is set to begin in the UK in July.
