Bene­dict’s bum scare in West End

Midweek Sport - - SPORTS - By JES­SICA HAWORTH

THE in­no­cent col­lege girl days are well and truly over for pop princess Brit­ney Spears.

The top US singer can’t seem to keep her as­sets un­der wraps now.

The Hit Me, Baby, One More Time crooner suf­fered a very public fall from grace fol­low­ing her split from hubby Kevin Fed­er­line in 2006.

Brit be­gan the hard-par­ty­ing ways which trans­formed her from Dis­ney child star to the Queen of nip slips.

She was all blonde-haired and sparkly- eyed ( right) at the re­lease of her book Stages in New York in 2002.

But she soon shed her ‘good girl’ im­age when she stripped down to sus­penders and stock­ings for a saucy gig in 2006.

And in De­cem­ber the same year, the singer flashed her fanny on a night out with pal Paris Hil­ton.

Dirty

Brit­ney’s in­ti­mate ar­eas were soon splashed all over the pa­pers when she was caught with­out her draw­ers on by snap­pas ( far right). And the saucy babe stripped to her bra and thong for a dirty dance in a New York night­club in Feb 2007.

Brit­ney re­ally let it all hang out when she went BRALESS while club­bing in LA a few months later.

And in Au­gust that same year she flashed her good­ies once more with barely-there tat­toos to cover her nips dur­ing a gig in Paris.

But it wasn’t the last time her pert rasp­ber­ries popped out – mak­ing a break for it again when she was shop­ping in LA in 2008.

Brit shunned her bra again when vis­it­ing Bri­tain in 2009.

The star has toned down her im­age re­cently and set­tled with her Hol­ly­wood agent beau, Ja­son Traw­ick.

But as she’s ru­moured to be ap­pear­ing as a judge on next year’s X Fac­tor USA with Si­mon Cow­ell, let’s hope she brings her flash­ing skills with her! SHER­LOCK star Bene­dict Cum­ber­batch says he nearly cut his ARSE open fall­ing over while naked on stage.

The thesp had to strip nude for his role in re­cent West End show Franken­stein.

And the posh 35-year-old ac­tor ( above) says: “It was alarm­ing hav­ing to per­form naked.

“But you just have to get over it.

“We orig­i­nally had a birthing pool on­stage, and while it was a great idea it meant you couldn’t get any pur­chase on the stage.

“I slid out and went fly­ing and I cut my­self open in sev­eral places. Thank­fully, not in THAT place.

“But I have got a few scars from that pro­duc­tion which I’m very proud of.”
