Awareness, raised.

Speaking about getting naked, James said he wasn't fazed as he's already done it on 'The Only Way Is Essex'.

“I’m not shy about getting naked," he said. "I was filmed on all fours having a back, crack and sack wax for TOWIE. It gave me a new appreciation for what some girls go through on a regular basis."

He also revealed that the cancer charity is close to his heart as he lost his granddad to the disease.

Cancer Research is close to my heart because my grandad died of cancer," he explained.

"Sadly it affects everyone in some way. I’ve not had any scares before but I did have a mole removed once – you have to be careful and look out for changes to your body and skin.”

James posed for the November issue of Cosmopolitan to raise awareness of male cancer for Cancer Research UK. Cosmopolitan is also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand. For further content, please go to www.cosmopolitan.co.uk/lockie
