The ITV special will be a tribute to the Full Monty to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary
MCFLY singer Harry Judd, Towie’s Elliott Wright and more will strip naked as part of a Full Monty tribute show on ITV.
The stars will be joined by dancer Wayne Sleep, Emmerdale’s David Metcalfe actor Matthew Wolfenden and Olympic swimmer Mark Foster after The Sun exclusively revealed that the film’s 20th anniversary will be marked with an ITV special in April.
Pointless presenter Alexander Armstrong will host the show, and it will end with six stars taking their clothes off at the London Palladium.
A source previously said: “The six who do sign up will be whipped into shape before performing their routine at a working men’s club in Sheffield in April.
“They will have to pluck up courage for the big reveal. But ITV are expecting the cast will get into the spirit and won’t be tempted to leave their hats on.”
Diversity dancer Ashley Banjo will prepare the stars for the show, which is supported by charities Movember, Cancer Research, Everyman and Prostate Cancer UK.
The stars were pictured for the first time as they arrived for rehearsals in London today.
The source went on: “As far as the team are concerned, this is a chance to celebrate a classic movie moment and raise awareness for charity.
“They are hoping that will appeal to the celebs they have in their sights.
“If they get the right people, they are certain the show will go down a storm with viewers, and give a real boost to all of the charities now involved.”
The Full Monty, which starred Robert Carlyle as the leader of a motley crew of unlikely strippers, was a box office smash when it was released in 1997.
Despite a budget of under £3million, it made over £200million in ticket sales and was later adapted into a musical in 2000 and a play in 2013.
