A new naked cleaning business has launched in Newcastle offering services in the buff for up to £75 an hour.

Glimmer strips back the hassle of household jobs by employing cleaners to carry out tasks such as ironing and hoovering - while completely naked.

The firm was launched in Edinburgh two years ago by 26-year-old Victoria Murphy, who first tried it herself by giving homes a thorough going over wearing nothing but her birthday suit.

Clients are not allowed to touch the cleaners, take pictures or videos or have anybody else in the house for the service, with the price dependent on how many clothes the employee has on.

The nude cleaning service will set the client back £75 per hour, while cheaper alternatives include the cleaner wearing lingerie (£55) or being topless (£65).

Victoria previously told PA: "I knew I wanted something in that adult niche which would be fun and risqué but not extreme.

"We are not an escort service. What we offer is fun and flirty.

"When I did it for a while, I had a laugh and nothing untoward happened."

Victoria now has an army of cleaners at her disposal and has expanded her business into other areas of Scotland and into England - including Newcastle.

A woman in her 20s called Jules is listed on the website covering the Newcastle area and is described as being 'confident, positive and full of energy'.

Clients must provide their details and ID before a date and time can be booked. Strict terms and conditions must also be accepted ahead of their visit with the cleaner having the option to leave if they feel uncomfortable.

Victoria admits that her clients have shattered her preconceptions about the type of person she imagined would use the service.

She said: "I thought we’d get mostly professional working men in their forties but actually, the clients are much more diverse.

"We’ve had some as young as 30 and others in their 80s.

"Many of them live alone and a lot of the older gentleman are quite lonely, so it’s important the experience is fun and that the cleaners like chatting.

"We have male cleaners available but women asking for men isn't something that comes up a lot.

"When I’m recruiting, I’m not worried about what people look like - as everyone has a different idea of what’s attractive – but they do need to be presentable and body confident.”

The entrepreneur, who has a degree in events management, says Glimmer prides itself on its high standards of cleaning.

She added: "Most people ask what the client does while the cleaner is working.

"They imagine they just sit there while the cleaner puts on a show but that’s not what we do.

"A lot of clients have never done anything like this before and are often quite shy.

"So the cleaner will chat and engage with them, but, most importantly, they’ll get on with the job of cleaning the house."
