The Full Monty returns

The cast of The Full Monty is getting back together for a new TV series based on the award-winning film.

Production on the show, which will be released by Disney Plus, has begun today in Sheffield and Manchester.

The original 1997 film followed a group of unemployed men in post-industrial Sheffield who turn to stripping.

The TV series will introduce their children and grandchildren, as well as the original cast including Robert Carlyle, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Addy and Lesley Sharp.

According to Disney, the eight part series will follow the original characters as they navigate Sheffield and its crumbling healthcare, education and employment sectors, exploring the brighter, sillier and more humane way forward where communal effort can still triumph over adversity.
