Danny Cipriani goes shirtless for cancer charity walk - pictures

Danny Cipriani has ditched most of his clothes - but left on his shoes - to promote Cancer Research UK's night-time walking marathon, Shine.

Kelly Brook's rugby player boyfriend posed shirtless to promote the September 28 event, which sees participants starting and finishing at Battersea Power Station in a bid to raise money for the charity.

"I'm incredibly proud to support Cancer Research UK's night-time walking event Shine," Cipriani said. "Cancer is a terrible disease that has affected far too many people's lives and sadly we all know someone who has been touched by it.

"That's why I really want to encourage men and women from across the UK to join together, make a stand and fight back! Everyone who walks, watches or fundraises at the event is playing a part in helping to beat cancer. So make sure you get all your friends and family together, sign up for Shine and help walk all over cancer!"

Countdown star Rachel Riley, whose grandmother died of mouth cancer before she was born, also helped promote Shine by donning a pair of snazzy neon boots.

"Cancer is something that very sadly unites us all; young, old, men, women and even children," she said. "Tragically, my maternal grandmother died from mouth cancer just before I was born and that's something that has affected my family greatly.

"That's why I felt it was so important to support Cancer Research UK's night-time walking event and help this amazing charity fight a disease that affects every single one of us in some way.
