The new cast of Calendar Girls have stripped off to give a peek at what's in store when they begin performing in the hit production at the end of the month.
Jerry Hall, 53, EastEnders star June Brown, 82 and 60-year-old Anita Dobson are among the ladies who have dared to bare all in the West End when the show's second run commences on July 28.
And while wearing just pearls and standing around a piano, they they have joined their fellow cast mates - Waterloo Road's Jill Halfpenny, Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson, 24, West End star Sara Crowe, 43, and Jill Baker - for a cheeky promotional photograph.
While it is not the first time Texan beauty Jerry has bared all on stage – she famously went nude to play Mrs Robinson in a stage production of The Graduate - she seems to have been working hard to maintain her incredible figure, turning plenty of heads on holiday in the South of France last week.
The show's grande dame June, meanwhile, underwent preparation of a different kind ahead of her latest stage role. Mindful of the fact she would be shedding her clothes to play Jessie, she underwent surgery on her varicose veins.
And according to the show's producer, David Pugh, the EastEnders matriarch is wholeheartedly embracing her role happy to be "a little more brave in the part" than her predecessor Sian Phillips.
"Sian uses balls of wool and something that has been crocheted to cover her - so for June I'm thinking smaller balls of yarn and a slightly smaller piece of knitting," he said.
The new cast replace stars including Lynda Bellingham, Patricia Hodge and Gaynor Faye in the show, and will be in action until October 17.
