Love Island star Teddy Soares is thought to be the first contestant from this year’s series to land a primetime TV gig.
The show is a Strictly Come Dancing themed spinoff of the celebrity strip-tease dance show which has aired over the years.
Teddy is said to be one of the twelve celebrity contestants who will be taking part.
Diversity dancer and presenter Ashley Banjo is set to return for the show also.
Speaking on the upcoming performance, ITV said: “Ashley Banjo is back with a band to lead a brand-new line-up of brave celebrities ready to take the strip to a whole new level.
"Bringing old glitz and glamour to the all-new super-sized strip, this is a Monty glitter ball dance extravaganza.”
They went on to add that audiences should “expect the unexpected”.
Strictly The Real Full Monty focuses on raising awareness for life-saving cancer checks.
Teddy is yet to announce the news himself.
