[x2]CANDIDS > 2017 > FULL MONTY REHEARSALS, LONDON – FEBRUARY 15

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.

Not together this time, like

​BIG NEWS, GUYS. You know how Busted are going on this proper reunion tour with Charlie Simpson next month? Well we’ve never really known what to call it, to be honest; but the boys have just announced that it’s called *drumroll* the Pigs Can Fly tour.

Yup – Matt, James and Charlie will be performing all the old faves (oh, we’re *too* excited for ‘3AM’) in arenas up and down the country this May; and they’re gonna be joined by special guests Wheatus and Emma Blackery. No biggie.

Oh, and in further news we might be getting a McFly tour later this year but MORE ON THAT LATER.
Chatting about the tour, Charlie Simpson said: “We’re calling the tour ‘Pigs Can Fly’ because it just goes to show that anything can happen. None of us thought we’d ever tour together again, and it’s been an amazing journey getting back to this point. We can’t wait to get out on the road​.”

So there you go. Can’t bloody wait, us.

In similarly-exciting news, McFly’s Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones surprised a fan with a performance at London Palladium *and* apparently mentioned said fan going to see them on tour later this year. CARNAGE ENSUED as the fandom went bitshit bonkers over it.

GAH PLEASE BE TRUE.

McFly have developed a new style for their upcoming album.

The band are currently working on the follow-up to 2010’s Above The Noise and already have some potential future singles.

“We’ve got so many good songs,” Harry Judd told the Daily Star

“We thought we had two or three singles ages ago but we’ve developed a new style and a whole new set of songs since then.

“It’s a progression from the last album. We’re trying to be ourselves and let it happen naturally.”

Judd added that he is proud of the band for remaining grounded throughout their decade in the music industry.

“We’re all normal guys and there’s no massive egos,” he said. “Tom and Danny should have massive egos but they don’t. Our insecurities keep us normal.

“I say maybe when we’re 50 or 60 we’ll call it a day and they’re like, ‘No, we’ll carry on’.”

This article says practically the same as the last post, anyways I think we’ll soon know if that’s true or not..

The double victory by McFly stars Harry Judd and Dougie Poynter on Strictly Come Dancing and I’m A Celebrity . . . respectively has made the band one of the hottest properties in TV.
Major broadcasters, including the BBC and ITV, have expressed an interest in signing McFly, possibly for their own Saturday night variety show.
Executives believe the clean-cut quartet — also made up of Danny Jones and Tom Fletcher — have the appeal to become an Osmonds-style crossover act.
My source close to the band confirms: ‘There has been significant interest from the main broadcasters and a number of production companies about a show.’
McFly have decided to think about their plans over the next few weeks while Harry is on the Strictly Come Dancing tour and then decide what to do.

I really loved Harry winning SCD and Dougie I’m a Celebrity but I just want them to focus on her music career right now, I don’t want them to be known for their time on TV shows ratter than for their music.

McFly have been approached by both the BBC and ITV to front their own Saturday night variety show.

Both the BBC and ITV have reportedly expressed an interest in the ‘Star Girl’ hitmakers – made up of Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd, Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones – in the hope of capitalising on the success of Harry’s victory on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ and Dougie being crowned King of the Jungle on ‘I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!’.

An insider told the Daily Mail newspaper: “There has been significant interest from the main broadcasters and a number of production companies about a show.”

Harry has previously claimed none of the other members of McFly could have been as successful on ‘I’m A Celeb’ as Dougie, as his bandmate’s “funny and quirky” qualities would always win over viewers.

He said: “None of us could have done ‘I’m A Celebrity’ but Dougie. He’s the shyest, but once you get to know him, he’s so funny and quirky. He’s very endearing as a person.

“‘Strictly’ suits me because I work hard, and I’m probably the best dancer out of all of us.”
