Love Island‘s Megan Barton Hanson revealed that she’s more comfortable being naked than she is being clothed while taking part in The All New Monty: Ladies Night.

Hanson joined a host of female celebrities led by Alexander Armstrong and Ashley Banjo to strip off on stage and help raise awareness of breast and cervical cancer research.

This came after Monday’s episode in which a group of male celebrities did the same for testicular and prostate cancer awareness.

Hanson was joined by Loose Women‘s Coleen Nolan, presenter Victoria Derbyshire, So Solid Crew’s Lisa Maffia, TOWIE star Danielle Armstrong, EastEnders’ Laurie Brett, tennis legend Martina Navratilova and I’m a Celebrity‘s Crissy Rock.

Before choreographing their strip routine, Banjo invited each of the women up onto the stage to address their own body image issues. But when it came to Hanson, she revealed that she actually feels less comfortable when fully clothed.

She said: “I feel so much more comfortable taking all my clothes off, when I’m getting paid, than standing here with my clothes on.”

Performing the dress rehearsal proved to be incredibly emotional for Derbyshire, who survived breast cancer after being diagnosed with the disease in 2015.

Hanson recalled the emotional moment Derbyshire took to the stage, telling the camera : “I could hear people saying, ‘Go on Victoria. We’ve got your back’… It was lovely but overwhelming.”
