"I love a brothel – I felt super comfy," she said.

"The madams were brilliant and real good sports. The girls were sweethearts and very transparent and proud about what they do for a living.

"It's completely legal in Nevada and I don't understand why all the states don't adopt that same approach. That occupation is always going to exist, so why not keep the girls safe and allow them to contribute financially to society? Condoms are mandatory and they've got panic buttons. It felt like a no-brainer."

On the flipside, Dooley then weighed in on some more uncomfortable living quarters that she has experienced during filming.

She shared: "Throughout all of the series there have been families I don't understand. Child-led parenting I couldn't get to grips with. It was before I was a mum but they didn't go to school, they weren't home-schooled, the parents are dictated to by the children. I found that a bit bizarre.

"There was the traditional housewife movement, where the women are subservient and the man is in charge.

"There was a guy in Nottinghamshire who had a lion and tiger in a small space in his garden, which felt quite unfair. But you don't bite your tongue, you always ask the questions calmly. It doesn't have to be unnecessarily confrontational."
