Celebrities from Alexander Armstrong to Ainsley Harriott bared all last night in a bid to raise awareness about cancer – and viewers were moved by their honesty and bravery.
With the support of charities Movember, Prostate Cancer UK, Cancer Research and Everyman, this talented bunch of male performers put on a show with a great routine while also encouraging men to get checked out for prostate cancer.
James “Arg” Argent managed to get his kit off despite body confidence issues – an achievement that clearly meant a lot.
Proper felt all fuzzy inside when Arg got his kit off.Not ever a sentence I thought Id say but ya gotta give it to him,he overcame so much to do that.I was convinced he wouldnt do it so was made up 4 him when he did when it mattered most.He should be very proud.#therealfullmonty
One of the most emotional moments came when John Partridge opened up about his battle with testicular cancer, something he had never discussed publicly before. He spoke about the shame he had felt and the liberation of finally talking about his struggle.
#TheRealFullMonty ..I’m so glad they’re doing this. Sometimes there’s such a stigma attached to cancers, and men(especially) don’t open up and talk about these things. Well done ..all of you. Awareness is key.x https://t.co/Kx2nS0ILRW
