A BRIT tourist has been quizzed by cops after her pal caused outrage by posing naked at a cathedral.
Jemma Hopson, 29, is said to have helped Canadian model Savahnna Cross, 28, with the risque stunt on the iconic steps in Amalfi, Italy.
An online clip showed a bare-bottomed Ms Cross outside the 900-year-old cathedral while a woman fanned out her red cover-up.
The mystery assistant is believed to be Ms Hopson – who claims claims to work for West Yorkshire Police.
Horrified onlookers reported the pair and their cameraman to authorities after spotting the raunchy photo-op in broad daylight.
The trio were spoken to by furious Italian officers for committing obscene acts in a public place. They could be fined up to £26,000.

Local media reported that Ms Cross told locals she was aiming to create a "personal memory" with her seductive shoot.
The 28-year-old and Ms Hopson, who recently lived in Abingdon, Oxon, are thought to be returning to the UK.
The women are understood to have been holidaying on the Italian coast in a luxury villa close to Amalfi while celebrating a mutual friend's birthday, MailOnline reports.
However, Ms Hopson's family have insisted she has no idea who the bold brunette on the staircase was.

Her mum Janice, from Rotherham, South Yorks, said: "This photoshoot was nothing to do with Jemma, although she saw it happening because she was in the area at the time.
"She didn't know the girl in the pictures but saw what was happening.
"She said it looked as if it was some kind of modelling shoot."
According to Ms Hopson's social media, she graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a degree in Sport and Exercise Science.
The 29-year-old now claims to be working as a forensic collision investigator for West Yorkshire police.
Her bio reads: "Experienced fitness instructor with a demonstrated history of working in the airlines/aviation industry.
"Skilled in operations management, foreign languages, team building, management and time management.
"Strong community and social services professional with a Bachelor of Science focused in sports and exercise."
A local prosecutor will now decide if there is enough evidence for the women to face charges.
Italian Police said: "The pair were questioned and their details taken. They were a Canadian woman and a British woman.
"We have their details on file and the prosecutor will decide what to do. We take matters like this very seriously.
"We have the image of the town of Amalfi to think of. This isn’t the sort of tourism and publicity we are looking for."
A private prosecution case could also be brought against Ms Hopson and Ms Cross by the local council for sullying Amalfi's reputation.
The footage of the naked photoshoot quickly went viral after it was shared online.
Locals were seen stopping their early morning errands in shock to take in the X-rated spectacle at the top of the staircase.
