The Real Full Monty

Published: Tue 06 Jun 2017

It was the box office smash of the 90s, not least for its iconic strip, and 20 years later, The Full Monty is back…with a twist. 
 
This is The Real Full Monty, where eight male celebrities will be baring all for a new ITV documentary, not only marking the film’s 20th anniversary, but to raise awareness of men’s cancers.
 
Along with host Alexander Armstrong, seven celebrity strippers will have only six days in total to learn and rehearse their unique take on the famous routine – performed to You Can Leave Your Hat On - under the watchful eye of choreographer and co-presenter Ashley Banjo, before ultimately performing it in front of an audience of thousands at The London Palladium.
 
Alexander said: “When this opportunity to revisit and celebrate The Full Monty came up, on that level alone I was completely won over.  I adored the film.”
 
The brave celebrities taking part are: McFly drummer, Harry Judd, TOWIE star, Elliott Wright, ballet dancer, Wayne Sleep, former Olympic swimmer, Mark Foster, Emmerdale actor, Matthew Wolfenden, TV presenter, Dom Littlewood, and Death in Paradise and Red Dwarf actor, Danny John Jules.
