Ashley will be teaching the guys to dance and admitted: “I’m nervous, I’ve never choreographed a strip. I want to get them in the right mind frame to now only dance but strip naked in front of thousands of people.”

Meanwhile, some of the celeb have revealed why they joined the cast.

On why he decided to take part, dancer Wayne said: “The reason I’m doing this show is because last year I had prostate cancer, and I am Prostate Cancer UK’s ambassador, therefore I felt I should come to the project immediately.”

And Elliott also revealed the reason he decided to take part: “My dad got prostate cancer two years ago, and he wasn’t quick enough and it spread, and when prostate cancer spreads you can’t get rid of it.”

The one-off episode of The Real Full Monty 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 nervous celebrities will be seen getting 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 in front of a LIVE at the London Palladium.

Host 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.”

He added: “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.”

The Real Full Monty airs tonight on ITV at 8:30PM.
