Jonathan Ross has revealed he and his wife Jane Goldman shower less than once a week – because he feels all grooming is a waste of valuable time.

The chat show host, 63, said he and his wife were like a pair of dirty ‘hamsters,’ and he ‘resents’ the fact he has to wash regularly.

He said: ‘Do you think I give enough of a s**t about anything to bother spending any extra time on grooming whatsoever – I resent the fact that I have to shower.

‘I sometimes go at least a week without showering – at least. So does Jane sometimes. We’re like a couple of hamsters in their own straw in that bed.’

Speaking on the Parenting Hell podcast, he said he hadn’t showered on the morning of the interview after comedian Josh Widdicombe asked him when he’d last had a shower.

Jonathan, saying he hadn’t done anything to work up a sweat, said: ‘It was yesterday. Why bother doing it two days in a row, what’s wrong with you? I didn’t do any exercise.’

He even confessed he once went two weeks without washing in the Florida heat because he thought he’d been in a swimming pool – but then discovered he still smelled badly

He added: ‘When we were on holiday – we have a place over in Florida – because it’s sunny and I’m jumping in and out the swimming pool, I probably didn’t shower properly for two weeks.

‘And I had a smell under my right armpit, and I thought “That’s bad, I better get rid of that”.

‘So I had a shower, it didn’t go. Had another one, it didn’t go. I’m not making this up. I had to shave the hair off my armpit to get rid of it.

‘It was so ingrained. I just did the one. Why would you do two? The other one was still fresh. I favour one, so the right arm was doing all the work.’

However, he did say sometimes if he decides to have a bath he will shower just before, so that he’s not sat in filthy water and dead skin.

He said: ‘The other extreme though is I sometimes shower before having a bath. That’s the Japanese way.’

Explaining why, he added ‘because you’re lying in what’s coming off your body so why would you bathe first and lie in the debris?’

Jonathan had earlier said his good dark head of hair was all natural as he would never think of dyeing it.

His daughter Honey said: ‘I actively receive DMs from people going “you need to tell your dad to stop dying his hair, it’s getting ridiculous now”.

‘And I have to message going “he has never used bottled dye, this is all his – it’s natural”.’
