The Celebrity Big Brother winner can be seen in the flesh in the March issue of Cosmopolitan to raise awareness of male cancer for Everyman.
Speaking about the shoot, the Essex star said: "I did a good bit of prep for the shoot, making sure everything was trim and proper. I even had a little shave of the nipples! It's important to look after yourself on the inside as much as on the outside.
"I found one when I was younger - I was really scared, but I went to the doctor and it was all fine. It might not have been if I hadn't spotted it early, though."
