Charities supported last year included Breast Cancer Care, Breast Cancer Now, CoppaFeel! and Prostate Cancer UK.

What is The Full Monty film?

The All New Monty is a tribute to the 1997 movie The Full Monty, which followed a group of unemployed men from Sheffield who stripped and danced to raise money.

Starring Robert Carlyle, Mark Addy, William Snape, Steve Huison, Tom Wilkinson, Paul Barber and Hugo Speer, the movie became a smash hit and has been adapted into musicals and plays in the years since.

The movie’s most famous scene features the men strutting their stuff to Tom Jones’ You Can Leave Your Hat On.
