If anyone was to ask me if anything makes me proud to be British, before I say the NHS, the Royal Family or the Beatles, I’ll say The Full Monty.
The Full Monty is a real British film about real Britain. This isn’t set in some shiny part of London where everybody talks like Hugh Grant. This is set in working class Yorkshire - Sheffield to be precise - about a group of unemployed men who decide to form a striptease act in order to earn a bit of cash.
Break out the killer shades & white pant-suits, because we’re about to take a trip back to the tubular times of the 1980’s! We’ve got just enough room in the Delorean to bring 1D with us, so let’s see just how they compare to the amazing icons of yesteryear.
Louis Tomlinson as: Cheeky, In-Your-Face Ska Punker, à la Madness
Our first stop in time is in 1982, where Louis Tomlinson is running around London in a skinny checkered tie and dress trousers with party boys Madness.
