The former 'Love Island' star and a whole host of celebrities - including Linda Lusardi, Hayley Tamaddon, Dr Zoe Williams and Jenni Murray - will be stripping off for a special charity show to help raise awareness of cancer.

For the men, Gareth Thomas, Jake Quickenden, Bob Champion, Jamie Lomas, Perri Kiely and Chris Hughes will also be taking part in a bid to raise awareness.

Coleen said: "I'll never feel comfortable about the end. I did think this year, 'Oh, I won't be nervous any more about learning a routine' - then Ashley puts it on ice! ... I keep saying 'never again' to getting my kit off but the response we get from the millions of women who feel empowered to check themselves after the show is incredible, so here we go again!

"This year is more personal than ever for me as two of my amazing sisters are battling cancer once more. I'm inspired by them and everyone I meet who's been touched by this dreadful disease, so I'm absolutely thrilled to be back leading a new awesome group of women, ready to bare all with me. Let's just hope we don't get frostbite on our unmentionables!"

Reality star Shaughna added of her reason to take part in the show: "I lost my Dad in December 2016. He had cancer for 18 months and it completely changed my life and my perspective of what I thought was important. When my dad was ill, I felt like no-one had any idea what I was going through, even my close friends. So, if anyone watching this is going through what I've been through losing him and can then feel like they're not alone, I'd be so happy to be able to do that."

Chris Hughes revealed he was doing the show in solidarity with his brother Ben.

He explained: "The main thing was seeing everything that my brother has gone through over the last year and a half since he was diagnosed with testicular cancer."

And Linda admitted she worries about hurting herself but insists the "cause is far greater".

Of her decision to take part in the programme, she said: "I do have a fear of hurting myself but the cause is far greater than my concerns. There's no way I was going to say no."

'The Real Full Monty On Ice' will be shown on ITV on December 14 and 15 at 9pm.
