Harry Judd leaves me depressed. It feel unfair there should be someone that hot in the world, when they’re not my boyfriend. Now he’s set out to really rub it in by starring in a new ‘documentary’ for ITV, that sees him trying out his skills as a stripper.
He’s not the only one either, as there’s also TOWIE’s Elliot Wright, ballet dancer Wayne Sleep, Emmerdale actor Matthew Wolfenden, TV presenter Dom Littlewood, Red Dwarf star Danny John Jules, and former Olympic swimmer Mark Foster. In the show, they all get together to learn about stripping, before showing off their skills in a performance at the London Palladium.
The producers managed to get the celebrities involved as The Real Fully Monty doesn’t just mark 20 years since the iconic film was released, but will also be used to raise awareness of male cancers.
As the show’s host, Alexander Armstrong comments, “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, the 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.”
Take a look at the trailer for The Real Full Monty below. The show airs on ITV1 in the UK on June 15th. (H/T Attitude)
