South African TV personality Lillian Dube is known for her outspoken sense of humour and sometimes unique take on things.

The actress startled Mzansi when she proudly announced to City Press that she owned no less than seven vibrators in August this year.

“I am still sexually active – I own seven vibrators. I live an honest life. I have nothing to hide,” she said.

But now it seems the 73-year-old's sexually-liberated remarks have not gone down well with her bosses.

Speaking to MetroFM about the incident, she remained unapologetic, saying: "Right now, I nearly lost my job, I won't say which company, because they were not happy with this thing but I said, 'I am not going to keep quiet because you are entitled to sex and we have men that we love whose men switch have gone down'. Do you go next door?"

She also came clean on how many of the sex toys she does own, admitting that she had exaggerated the number, and that she only has three.

Not one to shy away from telling it like it is, in a separate interview she put SABC sports presenter Thomas Mlambo on the spot when she asked him if he "sucks titties".
