Female readers may like to sit down and take a deep breath before perusing this story: hunky ex-Holby City and Hollyoaks actor Jeremy Edwards has stripped off for a new charity campaign targeting male cancer.

The 37-year-old actor has been photographed without a stitch on for the Everyman Campaign, an initiative launched by the the Institute of Cancer Research in 1997.

“I’ve always exercised but I only got the six-pack recently and I’m pretty proud of it,” said Edwards. “I did a six-week challenge for Men’s Health magazine that involved training twice a day, a six-mile run before breakfast and no carbs after lunch. I’m chuffed and my mates can’t believe the transformation.”

Edwards said he decided to support the campaign after a scare five years ago: “One of my testicles swelled to the size of a cricket ball. Thankfully, it was a treatable cyst.”

The actor joins other celebrities such as Gemma Atkinson, Rachel Stevens, and Dermot O'Leary in supporting the campaign, which aims to increase awareness in males of testicular cancer.

The steamy photo of Edwards will appear in the August edition of Cosmopolitan magazine, although the star admits not everyone will be impressed.

“Because my fiancĂ©e Lydia sees me naked every day, I don’t think it’s had as much impact on her,” he said. “I’m like, ‘But look at my abs!’”
