BENIDORM star Crissy Rock, tennis legend Martina Navratilova and singer Lisa Maffia will strip naked for ITV’s All New Monty.
The trio are the latest names confirmed to bare all to raise awareness of cancer in intimate parts of the body – having all been affected in some way by the disease.

A source told The Sun Online: “Raising awareness of cancer means a great deal to all three women, and they are delighted to be taking part in the show.
“While they’re a little nervous to get their kit off in front of the nation, they are confident that Ashley Banjo will produce something special this year.”
Eighteen-time grand slam singles champion Martina, 62, was diagnosed with an aggressive ductal carcinoma in her breast following a standard mammogram in January 2010.
Two months later she had it removed and followed the op with radiation therapy which she combined with her punditry commitments.

So Solid Crew member Lisa’s mum Shirley was diagnosed with cervical cancer in April 2011.
Speaking at the time, the 39-year-old told Flavour Mag: “It really takes over so much of your life, how many people it affects and the money it costs for the treatment.
“Chemo is really expensive it cost hundreds of thousands per patient, and there’s so many people that need it. Just seeing it with my own eyes really woke me up to see the input this charity has with cancer.”
Comedian Crissy, 60, beat womb cancer in 2000 but had to have another operation 2010 after falling ill in Spain.
