The nervous celebrities have already been put through their paces at Shiregreen working men’s club in Sheffield, as featured in the original Full Monty film, where they had their first taste of baring their flesh in front of a live audience, in preparation for their upcoming performance live at the London Palladium.
The one-off episode tonight follows Ashley and Alexander as they embark on their mission to teach the celebrities how to expose their famous flesh to maximum effect.
The group will be shown learning how to strip tease before they boldly do the Fully Monty, stripping completely nude in front of a 2,000 strong audience, which will feature in an episode of Tonight at the London Palladium.
Alexander Armstrong said: “We are using this film to raise awareness of men's cancer prostate and testicular, encouraging guys to check themselves and look out for their friends and act on symptoms if they have them.
"If caught early enough, prostate cancer is nearly 100 per cent curable, but if men are not aware of the problem or ignore symptoms, as story is not such a good one, as prostate cancer kills one man an hour.”
“I hope that by showing these men have the balls to strip off in front of thousands of people, it might encourage otherwise reluctant men to overcome their embarrassment and get themselves checked.”
Ashley Banjo added: “We’re going to have a ball making this show. I’ll make sure viewers are in for a treat by knocking a group of famous novices into shape and preparing them for the strip tease performance of their lives – viewers will see our celebs as they’ve never seen them before!”
The Real Full Monty airs TONIGHT on ITV on Thursday, June 15 at 8:30PM.
