Martin Roberts, 58, gave his fans a behind-the-scenes insight into this year’s Full Monty show on Instagram today. In view of his 13,000 followers, the presenter joked that there was a “crisis” as Laila Morse, 76, believed she looked like an Oompa-Loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Love Island star Demi Jones put a picture of her with the Mo Harris star up to the camera, as Martin joked about the moment.

“Mo has discovered that in pictures she actually looks orange, so that’s not good,” he laughed.

The Homes Under The Hammer host tried to reassure Laila that she looked great, while Colin Jackson joked all she needed was a hat.

Martin then asked James Jordan and his wife Ola for their opinion on her appearance as they walked over to the group.

“She looks like one of the Oompa-Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” the dancer quipped.

“James, that’s not very nice,” Ola chimed in.

Martin added, laughing: “That’s really not going to help with her insecurities.”

Laila didn’t seem to take any offence however as she was also seen laughing in the video.

The ex Strictly Come Dancing star proceeded to sing the theme tune from the movie.

The group are currently in the midst of filming for this year’s Fully Monty.

James and his fellow recruits will be baring all to raise awareness of life-saving cancer checks, whilst bringing the glitz and glamour to the all-new supersized strip.

The dancer signed up to the show following the death of his dad Allan in March.

The latter died after battling a terminal brain tumour.

At the time, James wrote: “My dad became an angel at 8:05am. I will forever miss him.

“My dad will always be my HERO. RIP daddy.”

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “My dad was my best mate, and I had never realised how powerful grief is.

“I didn’t realise what it would do to me, and what it would do to my body and how it would affect me, I’ve never suffered from it.

“But I understand that mental health is a massive thing, and I am a firm believer in supporting all of that.

“As my dad would’ve said, ‘unfortunately it’s part of life son.’ And it is.”

The stars taking part in this year’s show include; James, Ola, Martin, Laila, Demi, Colin, Brenda Edwards, Duncan James, Christine McGuiness and Teddy Soares.

Strictly the Full Monty airs later this year on ITV.
