Movie star Ray Winstone has stripped off at his local to pose with regulars for a nude charity calendar.

The pictures were taken at the Crusader in Roydon and the calendar will be sold to help raise money the Prostate Cancer Charity.

Mr Winstone, who has been a regular at the Crusader for the last 18 months was happy to get naked after a couple of drinks to calm his nerves.

"It was all in a good cause," he said. "If men ignore early symptoms of prostate cancer it could lead to worse problems later on. If our bit of light-hearted fun helps raise awareness of this disease then it will all be worthwhile."

Wendy O'Sullivan, licensee at the Crusader, said: "The response and generosity of our customers and people in the area has been absolutely staggering. This is a male-orientated pub so we chose the Prostate Cancer Charity because we know it affects thousands of men every year. Once they got their kit off, our models really entered into the swing of things although there were some you wouldn't wish to ever see nude again!"

Anyone requiring further information should ring the Prostate Cancer Charity's confidential helpline on 0845 300 8383 which is staffed by trained nurses and operates from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday and 7pm until 9pm on Wednesdays. To make a donation you can call 020 8222 7622 or visit www.
