It’s a case of who bares wins as more celebs strip off in aid of cancer awareness in The All New Monty on ITV, showing on consecutive nights

Following the success of last year’s The Real Full Monty (and The Real Full Monty Ladies’ Night), which saw a host of famous faces strutting their stuff and daring to ‘bare all’ for cancer awareness, in two shows this week a new crop of celebrities take to the stage.

Tonight, the pressure is on the boys – including comic Joe Pasquale, Love Island’s Jack Fincham (pictured above), ex-Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher and Dancing on Ice’s Matt Evers – to NOT leave their hats on!

Then, tomorrow (9pm, ITV), Martina Navratilova and ex-EastEnders actor Laurie Brett are among the ladies performing in The All New Monty: Ladies’ Night.

All the stars are nervous, but if it results in just one viewer getting themselves checked by a doctor, then it will all have been worth it!

Matt Evers told TV Times about his personal connection to the cause…

Why did you want to take part in tonight's all-male episode of All New Monty?

I lost my mother to cervical cancer when I was 17, then, six years ago, I had a testicular cancer scare.

I found a lump and it took me about six months to build up the courage to go to the doctor to have it looked at.

Thankfully, it was a sports injury but it could have been serious.

What do you think stops men going to the doctor?

I was afraid of finding out if it was cancer and whether I’d be strong enough to fight it.

But I guess generally, for guys, it can be really embarrassing.

You don’t want to strip off in front of a guy you don’t know.

How are you feeling about the big night?

I’ll be honest, I’m nervous. I’m used to performing on Dancing on Ice, so, for me, it’s the idea of getting naked more than the performance.

But it’s really about remembering the cause and why we’re all doing this, which is to hopefully save lives.
