Janet Street Porter had sex with a lodger instead of charging him rent, she revealed today on Loose Women.
The outspoken panellist - who has been married five times in the past - stunned viewers this week as she revealed between partners she had a raunchy arrangement with a lodger.
Speaking on Tuesday's (February 25 2020) episode of the ITV daytime show, she said: "I did have male lodgers... Yeah, I had a couple of male lodgers.
"Not at the same time, one after the other. And I've got to admit, I did have sex with one of my lodgers because I didn't charge him rent."

The audience couldn't hold back their laughter as her co-stars seemed similarly shocked, and Brenda Edwards suggested the gentleman was a "lodger with benefits".
Janet smiled: "Exactly! The only think I asked of him was that he always had some crumpets in the fridge."
Her co-star Andrea McLean interrupted to "stress this was a mutually agreeable arrangement and we has fine with it all".
The 71-year-old star replied: "Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry I've said something offensive."
When Andrea teased she was just "clarifying that he was alright with all the arrangements", Janet quipped: "Why wouldn't he be?"
As her fellow panellists appeared stunned - and the studio audience continued to laugh - Janet explained this was at a time she was feeling "a bit lonely".
She explained: "It was just a period in my life when I was a bit lonely and there was occasionally - I don't think I need to go into any more detail."
