They were put through their paces at Shiregreen working men's club in Sheffield, as featured in the original film, where they bared their flesh before a live audience in preparation for their upcoming performance at the London Palladium.

The documentary, produced by Spun Gold Television, will follow presenters Alexander Armstrong and choreographer Ashley Banjo as they prepare to strip completely nude in front of 2,000 people for an episode of Tonight at the London Palladium.

Alexander Armstrong said: “We are using this film to raise awareness of men's cancer prostate and testicular, encouraging guys to check themselves and look out for their friends and act on symptoms if they have them. If caught early enough, prostate cancer is nearly 100 per cent curable, but if men are not aware of the problem or ignore symptoms, as story is not such a good one, as prostate cancer kills one man an hour.”

“I hope that by showing these men have the balls to strip off in front of thousands of people, it might encourage otherwise reluctant men to overcome their embarrassment and get themselves checked.”
