Kelvin Fletcher and Matt Evers reveal they'll "pay homage" to Willie Thorne by shaving pubic hair for All New Monty

The snooker legend is battling prostate cancer

Kelvin Fletcher and Matt Evers are planning to shave their pubic hair into the shape of Willie Thorne's moustache ready for their strip on The All New Monty: Who Bares Wins.

The former Emmerdale actor and the Dancing on Ice pro skater want to "pay homage" to the snooker legend, who is also part of the ITV show, because he has been the father figure of their group.

Kelvin said: "We are planning on paying homage to Willie by having our pubic hairs shaped like his 'tache.

"He's been the patriarch of the group and he's battling prostate cancer right now. He's a legend."

Kelvin and Willie have been preparing for the show - which will see the stars perform a Full Monty-style striptease to raise awareness of male cancers - by getting spray tans, but hotel staff mistook the former Andy Sugden actor's tanning assistant for "paid help".

He said: "I got someone to come to our hotel - I think reception thought she was paid help, I told my wife everything just in case.

"Then Willie had one, too."

Speaking on The Jeremy Vine Show He said: "We're raising awareness for testicular cancer.

"I had a testicular cancer scare a couple of years back and thankfully I have got a clean bill of health but this is something in my career I would have never thought I'd do and it's performing for millions and millions of people with Dancing On Ice, and now taking my clothes off for millions and millions of people.

"I don't think I've ever been more nervous! It's properly everything off and when I agreed to do the show I was like, 'I don't know, it'll be smoke and mirrors or I'll wear a flesh-coloured thong' no."
