Claire King intends to "romp in a field" when she's 85 years old.

The "Coronation Street" actress - who is known for portraying busty shop worker Erica Holroyd in the soap - is adamant she has no body hang ups and doesn't see any reasons why she won't be getting frisky out in the open when she's older.

Speaking to Closer Magazine, the 54-year-old actress said: "I have none of the insecurities I had when I was younger and men pick up on that.

"I rely on experience rather than looks. I think "don't you want to get to know me because I'm interesting rather than because of my t**s?"

"There are times when you don't want to be swinging from the chandeliers but there's also no reason you can't be romping in a field at 85.

"It's about releasing endorphins to make you feel good, and who doesn't want that?"

Although her ample assets and beautiful looks have drawn viewers in, Claire recently announced she was planning to leave the programme after three years on the soap.

She said at the time: "It's been a dream come true to tread those famous cobbles.

"I was only meant to stay for six weeks initially, so for Erica to be so popular that she stayed for three years and even worked in The Rovers was a real compliment to me as an actress. I've had such a great time with the cast and crew so it's fabulous that they have left the door open for Erica to return in the future.

"Who knows what adventures she'll be getting up to away from the Street? She's certainly not boring.

"As for me, I'm ready for another challenge. I'm not leaving the screens anytime soon, so watch this space."

Claire recently revealed she thought her time was up as she claimed she heard through the grapevine that new producer Kate Oates was reportedly planning to kill off a number of the key characters when she took over production reins last month.
