Brand new one-off documentary The Real Full Monty premieres Thursday 15 June at 8.30pm on ITV, and sees a group of male celebrities come together to recreate the famous iconic striptease 20 years after the release of the original film about unemployed Sheffield steel workers, which starred Robert Carlyle, Hugo Speer and Mark Addy.
But this time it is all in aid of raising awareness of men’s health issues. Alexander Armstrong hosts, teaming up with Diversity’s Ashley Banjo who puts the game celebs through their paces, getting them ready for the performance of their lives in front of
2,000 people at the London Palladium.
As they struggle to learn the moves and get used to taking off their clothes to music and exposing their bodies, conversation turns to the reason they are doing it, men’s attitude to health and their concerns about getting their kit off. With little time to rehearse and the performance fast approaching, will the guys be brave enough to pull it off? The boys brave enough to go through the challenge include McFly drummer Harry Judd, TOWIE star Elliott Wright, ballet dancer Wayne Sleep, Olympic swimmer Mark Foster, Emmerdale’s Matthew Wolfenden, TV presenter Dom Littlewood, and actor Danny John Jules from Death in Paradise and Red Dwarf.
The Real Full Monty air Thursday 15 June 2017 at 8.30pm on ITV.
