Pamela Anderson's latest professional incarnation may come as something of a surprise to fans of Baywatch and Barb Wire. Because the inimitable Ms Anderson has decided to leave her reputation for the risqué behind her, by reinventing herself as a Sunday school teacher.
In an appearance on the BBC's Hand of God programme, Pammy reveals that she has been helping educate youngsters in the ways of Christian life.
"I'm teaching at my son's Sunday school. It's reading the bible, getting out jelly beans and setting the kids a good example," she says. "There have been bad times and good times and I have had religion to get me through. I think it's important as I've always believed in God. It's just that now I've joined a new church and my kids are going to Sunday school."
She goes on to insist that there is no contradiction between her sultry image and her spiritual beliefs. "I'm not killing anyone or breaking any laws with my work," says the actress, who is currently starring as an exotic dancer-turned-detective in the series Striperella. "It's entertainment and there is nothing wrong with it."
