London band Right Said Fred have launched a campaign to encourage people to get tested for Hepatitis C.
The band, who are famous for the song "I'm Too Sexy", have made a documentary about being tested. In it they discuss how their lifestyle choices have put them at a higher risk of contracting the disease.
The most common cause of infection is the sharing of needles to inject recreational drugs. But the band says there are risks associated with anabolic steroid use, tattoos, piercings or acupuncture which are less commonly known and need to be exposed.
It's estimated that over 60,000 people have been infected with hepatitis C in London.
