The Real Full Monty is back with a bang this Christmas!

So we’re expecting Strictly the Real Full Monty to air at a similar time.

Watch this space for more news.

Strictly the Real Full Monty cast

Ashley Banjo will be leading a brand-new line-up of brave celebrities, ready to take the famous Full Monty strip to a whole new level.

The nervous new recruits will be baring all to raise awareness of life-saving cancer checks.

This year, the Strictly the Real Full Monty will be a dance extravaganza!

EastEnders cast member Laila Morse is one of the class of 2021 hitting the dance floor this year in Strictly the Real Full Monty.

Professional dancers and husband and wife James and Ola Jordan will also take part.

Surely they already have a head-start in the routine with their dancing background and tendency to flash the flesh in their Strictly outfits?

Blue singer Duncan James, Olympian Colin Jackson, and Loose Women star Brenda Edwards have also signed up!

Meanwhile, Homes Under the Hammer presenter Martin Roberts and Love Island favourites Teddy Soares and Demi Jones also join in.

Model Christine McGuiness – aka Paddy’s wife – completes the troupe.

Each celebrity has their own story to tell about how cancer has touched their own lives or those closest to them.

“It’s going to be our biggest musical dance extravaganza yet and we are determined to get the message out there that early cancer checks in intimate areas save lives.

“So don’t forget to check your bits and baubles this Christmas!”

Strictly the Real Full Monty on ITV1 – what else do we know?

ITV Factual Commissioner Kate Teckman says: “This year we’re bringing our message with a bang by adding a huge dose of sequins, sparkles, sambas and salsas to the strip.

“They’ll also be star guest performances and stunning solos, so hold onto your mirror balls – this is strictly the most ambitious Full Monty yet!”

Strictly the Full Monty will air sometime in December 2021 on ITV1.
