Sally, who plays Faith Dingle in the ITV soap, said taking part is very important to her as it raises awareness and funds for breast cancer.
In emotional scenes, her character Faith revealed she had gone through treatment for breast cancer and showed her mastectomy scars in her bedroom mirror.
Speaking to The Sun Online at the Tric awards, Sally said: “It’s been fantastic, an extraordinary experience – probably a life changing one.
“It’s been quite an education and I’ve loved it.

“It is hugely nerve wracking, I’m not a dancer to begin with and I need to keep my bits in the right place!
“People ask me how I feel about it but I don’t really care how I feel because what’s important is how the audience feels about it.
“The person who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer or the person who has been walking around feeling depressed about having those scars when they’re scars of survival.
“We just want to get people to take notice of their bodies and check themselves because nine times out of 10 they’re going to survive.”

Speaking on Loose Women, Diversity star Ashley revealed how the idea came about, saying: “We had a chat, didn’t we Coleen? We had a chat about how cancer isn’t something that only affects men, it affects women as well.
“I’ve done The Real Full Monty for men and we were talking about expanding it.”

Coleen replied: “We were saying, ‘Wouldn’t it be good to get a women Full Monty together?’”
The panel probed Coleen on whether or not she’d go completely nude to which she said: “Well, that’s up to [Ashley’s] choreography!”

Ashley continued: “We are doing this to raise awareness, to make an impact, to make noise – obviously for cancers, but also for body confidence. If we didn’t get it all out, it wouldn’t count.
“We were just talking about it, we are still at the early stages. I’ve got to recruit women… I’m actually shaking at the thought of it.”
