How many hot-blooded males would love to see blonde bombshell Faye Tozer pole-dancing?

The fantasy comes true in the X-rated bitter-sweet comedy The Naked Truth at Chesterfield’s Winding Wheel tonight (Friday, July 1).

There’s nothing sleazy about Steps’ singer Fay’s performance, she makes pole-dancing beautiful and graceful.

She plays one of six women in a pole-dancing class, each from assorted backgrounds and each with a heart-tugging tale to tell about love or the lack of it.

Faye’s character Tricia is tactless, snobby and obsessed with body image having shed half her weight to get wed.

Vicki Michelle plays Sarah who joins the class to restore her libido after a mastectomy and turns into a mother hen caring for a troubled brood of students.

Add to the mix rough and ready Rita (played by Lucy McCormick), big and bubbly Bev (Amy Drake), innocent and inexperienced Faith (Eve Burley) and the superfit, slender teacher Gabby (played by Vicky’s daughter Louise Michelle).

The dialogue and some of the scenes are everything you would expect in an adult-only show but the play contains important messages that beauty is only skin-deep, never judge a person by their size and friends will always be there for you.

A small audience saw the first performance at the Winding Wheel last night, which was directed by Lisa Riley.

The absence of programmes will hopefully mean more money going into the coilecting buckets of the Macmillan charity volunteers tonight.
