THE boyfriend of Irish TV actress Dervla Kirwan has revealed he loves â€œtinyâ€ swimming pants.
Spooks star Rupert Penry-Jones says he likes wearing tight swim wear ever since his girlfriend Ballykissangel star Dervla, bought them for him.
He said: â€œIâ€™m afraid Iâ€™m a Speedo man and the last thing Dervla bought me was a pair of â€˜budgie smugglersâ€™, as I call them.
â€œIf weâ€™re somewhere private on holiday with our own pool, Iâ€™ll either wear nothing or my Speedos.
â€œI donâ€™t understand men who wander round with wet shorts down to their knees.â€
And the 37-year-old BBC star also admitted to being a â€œnewâ€ man whoâ€™s happy to go for â€œfacials and massagesâ€.
He added: â€œI have the odd facial because I have to wear make-up every day for the show.
â€œAnd when I feel like treating myself, I go to a fantastic places called Gentlemanâ€™s Tonic in London.Â Itâ€™s fantastic.
â€œIâ€™ll have a facial, a body massage and a cut-throat-razor shaveâ€.
