Strictly The Real Full Monty viewers were left on an emotional roller coaster during the final star-studded routine, which culminated with Laila Morse proudly baring her scars.
Fans watched Loose Women’s Brenda Edwards kick off the spectacular finale by singing This Is Me from The Greatest Showman before the other stars joined in a beautiful ballroom routine.
James and Ola Jordan were seen dancing in front of moving photos and videos of his late father who died of cancer earlier in the year holding their baby girl.
The tone then quickly changed when The Full Monty’s music, You Can Leave Your Hat On, came into play as an Olympian. Colin Jackson put a pilot’s hat on his head to start the next part of the routine.
The celebrities then performed a scorching routine together, before the men ditched their thongs and the women took off their bras for the big finish.
Viewers remained moved when Laila Morse, who had previously battled breast cancer, opted to remain fully in front of the audience with her scars visible.
They took to Twitter to congratulate the brave stars, who have all battled or been touched with cancer in their lives, on a performance so incredibly moving to encourage others to check out their own tracks.
Fans posted: ‘Strictly The Full Monty was an amazing and moving spectacle. Well done to everyone involved (especially my guy @The_JamesJordan – beautiful dance for your dad.) Lots of tears in this house! “
Others added, “Powerful stuff, strictly the real Full Monty. A check is for life, not just for Christmas” and “Strictly the real full made me cry, what a sight.”
Viewers were taken on a roller coaster of emotions, adding, “The full, strictly real month gives me all the feeling under the sun my God I can’t cope with it” and “@Diversity_Tweet just saw you guys with the celebs on the Strictly real Full Monty! OMG you were all amazing, you laughed, cried, all the emotions were there! Brilliant. ‘
Strictly The Real Full Monty is available to watch on ITV Hub.
