The Strictly Real Full Monty has arrived on ITV for 2021 – here’s who’s on the line up and where to watch.
The celebrity stripping show has aired regularly over the years, aiming to raise awareness of life-saving cancer checks.
First it was the men who bared all, then it was the women’s chance to shine while last year, they joined forces to deliver the most sensational performance yet in The Real Full Monty on ice. So, how to top that?
Well ITV is now introducing Strictly The Real Full Monty, teasing: “Ashley Banjo is back with a bang to lead a brand-new line-up of brave celebrities ready to take the strip to a whole new level.
“Bringing old school glitz and glamour to the all-new supersized strip, this is a Monty dance extravaganza.”
