Ex-Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher to strip off for The All New Monty

He will join a string of famous faces

Jack Fincham, Joe Pasquale and Kelvin Fletcher are among the stars who will strip for The All New Monty: Who Bares Wins.

Ashley Banjo and Alexander Armstrong are returning for the striptease documentary - which sees celebrities bare all to raise awareness of prostate cancer.

The pair think this year's line-up, which will also include Strictly Come Dancing's Gorka Marquez, ex-snooker player Willie Thorne, Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding, Dancing on Ice professional skater Matt Evers and footballer Jason Cundy, will make the show the "biggest and best yet".

It's such a privilege to be able to be a part of this fantastic series.

Ashley said: "It's such a privilege to be able to be a part of this fantastic series.

"This show has been a life-changing experience for me and hopefully for many other men around the country who have been checked or had conversations about cancer that they wouldn't have had otherwise.

"Every year I plan something I hope will be better than the last, but this time Xander and I really have gone full-out to make this the biggest and best yet!"

Alexander added: "I am proud to be a part of such a great cause alongside Ashley and I am looking forward to being involved in another fantastic show.

"With this year's group of lads we will be looking to raise the bar and ensure it's a night no one will forget!"

Former Emmerdale star Kelvin had a great time working on the show with his new friends.

He shared a photo of them all together on Instagram and wrote: "Some of the nicest guys I've ever met! What a laugh we've had filming for the #AllNewMonty2019.

"We are helping raise awareness for Prostate and Testicular Cancer and what better way to do that than to strip naked! @itv #friendsforlife #getchecked (sic)."

Meanwhile, Love Island star Jack is "proud" to be working for such a good cause - and has enjoyed the added bonus of improving his dance skills.

He shared a photo of himself and Kelvin on Instagram and wrote: "I am so so proud to say that I am taking part in @itv 's The All New Monty to raise awareness for men's cancers.

"I couldn't of asked for a better team to work with and a better group of blokes to strip with - made some friends for life!

"Being trained by the one and only Diversity has helped with my drunk uncle at a wedding dance moves. Can't wait for you to see it !(sic)"
