Craig Charles is one of life's exhibitionists. At one point in his live act, the star of Red Dwarf drops his trousers to reveal stockings and suspenders and proceeds to conduct a conversation with the contents of his underpants. He even includes a brave section about his spell in jail on remand: "Now I'm glad I lived it," he claims. "I feel a more complete person. Prison widens your circle of friends. I can now talk about things that no one else has the right to touch. I took the positive aspects of it and forgot the negatives, so I would not turn into a twisted mess. I am able to laugh at myself on stage. It makes me the authentic article."
