BBC stars shed clothes for charity… as they call on the public to strip their wardrobes

While they are all familiar faces on BBC television, you might struggle to recognise them with their clothes off.

Former EastEnders actress Lucy Benjamin, Apprentice contestant Kate Walsh, Strictly Come Dancing contestant Camilla Dallerup and Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury agreed to pose nude as part of the Give Up Clothes For Good campaign.

Its aim is to persuade the public to strip their wardrobes and raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

Dance judge Bruno Tonioli is also stripping off for the campaign and rather putting the streak into Strictly Come Dancing.

Among others taking their clothes off are footballer Sol Campbell and Christopher Biggins.

Miss Bradbury, 38, said she was happy to lose her wellies and all-weather jacket for a good cause.

‘I had an absolute blast doing this shoot and am thrilled to help support such an important campaign,’ she said.

The Give Up Clothes For Good campaign – which is supported by discount retailers TK Maxx and HomeSense – is a nationwide clothing and homeware collection scheme helping in the fight to beat childhood cancers.

The campaign, which was launched yesterday and runs to April 25, has been held every other year since 2004.

In 2008 it raised £3.2million worth of donations for the charity’s life-saving research and this year aims to raise even more.

Ex-Atomic Kitten star Liz McLarnon, Channel 4’s A Place In The Sun host Jasmine Harman, actor Jeremy Sheffield and cricketer Jimmy Anderson have also shed their clothes for the cameras.

Bruno Tonioli said: ‘I encourage the nation to open up those closets; reach for those hidden marvels, and donate your fabulous items of clothing and homeware.’

Free donation bags will be available at branches of both stores, but all other bags are welcome.

Each filled bag could be worth up to £30 to the charity.
