The 40-year-old beauty – who recently rekindled her relationship with ex-husband Tommy Lee – insists her breasts were the secret to her success on the hit US TV show.

She told Justin Lee Collins and Alan Carr while co-hosting The Sunday Night Project: “I didn’t wear a bra to the audition. It’s actually true. You had to have a swim test and I floated. You had to run in slow motion and swim in slow motion and then smile. I know how to work a defibrillator!”

Pamela also said she has kept the famous red swimsuit from the programme to wear in the bedroom.

She added: “I have one swimsuit left. I wear it. I use it for my boyfriend and stuff. In the shower and then I run in slow motion and then give my friends mouth to mouth resuscitation!

“I do miss it – it’s the best job in the world.”
