HE’S best known as Desperate Housewives hunk Mike Delfino – but James Denton looks totally different nine years after the hit show ended.

In a rare TV interview, the 58-year-old admitted he felt “uncomfortable” going shirtless for scenes as Teri Hatcher’s sexy next-door love interest.

In fact he gave up booze and junk food after getting the part of the buff neighbourhood plumber in 2004.

Appearing on The Morning Show today, James said: “No, I was never okay with it. I spent most of my career playing bad guys until Housewives.

“I had never been hunky.

“I was happy to be there, don’t get me wrong, but it was uncomfortable. It follows me forever, that shirtless shot in the front yard.
