Naked am­bi­tion

Herald Sun - - CONFIDENTIAL - COLIN VICK­ERY

FOR­MER AFL cham­pi­ons BRIAN

TAY­LOR and CAMP­BELL BROWN

are part of an eight­man squad who will strip naked for a new re­al­ity show.

“I had a fear of get­ting nude,” Tay­lor said af­ter get­ting his gear off for Chan­nel 7’s The Real Full Monty. “I’m il­lit­er­ate when it comes to mu­sic. I can’t dance. And I’ve con­quered all three.”

Their strip, to raise aware­ness of men’s can­cer, was pre­re­corded in Syd­ney ear­lier this week for broad­cast later in the year.

Oth­ers in the celebrity strip squad in­clude SHANE

JA­COB­SON, weather pre­sen­ter SAM MAC, iron man JETT

KENNY, model KRIS SMITH, broad­caster BREN­DAN JONES and NRL player MATT COOPER.

For­mer Hawk and Suns star Brown says the prospect of go­ing nude was scary but the pay-off was worth it.

“I didn’t know any­one when I came into this and now I’ve made life­long mates,” he said. “A lot of good will come from this very bad per­for­mance.” Fash­ion model Smith said he has bat­tled a lot of per­sonal in­se­cu­ri­ties over the years and the strip show taught him to “be com­fort­able in your own skin”.

Mac said: “I’ve had my first spray tan. I asked for some­thing with a sub­tle glow and they sprayed me with some­thing called Fi­jian Choco­late Mousse.”

McKEN­NEY chore­ographed the rou­tine, but de­scribed re­hearsals as “like wran­gling cats”.

Ja­cob­son said per­form­ing The Real Full Monty was scary but was thrilled to strip along­side buff celebri­ties Kenny, Smith and Cooper.
