Journalist Victoria Derbyshire, Diversity’s Ashley Banjo and presenters Coleen Nolan and Alexander Armstrong are returning to ITV to convince celebrities to ‘bare all’ for cancer awareness in two 90-minute specials.
The All New Monty 2019: Who Bares Wins, which follows on from The Real Full Monty, sees eight celebs learning extravagant dance routines, demonstrating the importance of carrying out intimate checks for cancer prevention and being body-positive in the process.
Former Love Island contestant Jack Fincham and Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez are among the familiar faces ‘baring all’ for a cause close to their hearts, alongside Rav Wilding (Crimewatch) and Emmerdale’s Kelvin Fletcher.
As the men and women dare each other to remove their clothes on TV to encourage the public to get checked regularly, the pressure is on to see who can pull together the most extravagant performance.
“It’s such a privilege to be able to be a part of this fantastic series,” commented Ashley Banjo.
“This show has been a life changing experience for me and hopefully for many other men around the country who have been checked or had conversations about cancer that they wouldn’t have had otherwise. Every year I plan something I hope will be better than the last.”
Alexander Armstrong added: “I am absolutely delighted this series will be returning following last year’s successful show in raising awareness of male cancer.
“I am proud to be a part of such a great cause alongside Ashley and I am looking forward to being involved in another fantastic show. With this year’s group of lads, we will be looking to raise the bar and ensure it’s a night no one will forget!”
