Personalities including Peter Crouch, Sir Mo Farah and Russell Tovey are among the famous faces appearing in a series of portraits for the Movember 2020.


The annual campaign aimed at raising awareness of male mental health issues and suicide prevention, as well as testicular and prostate cancer sees model Abbey Clancy (who’s married to Crouch), singer Liam Payne and George The Poet also being photographed. Other celebrities involved include musicians Miles Kane and Jesse Wood, rugby player Chris Robshaw and actor Sam Claflin.


Speaking about taking part in the campaign, former England striker Crouch said: “I've long supported Movember and the important work they do for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and male mental health.


“It's been an honour to join the campaign this year and get behind the cause by growing a mo.


“This year more than ever, I urge everyone to get involved in the month-long movement and show your support in any way you can.”


Movember CEO, Michelle Terry, said: “It's great to see so many well-known faces put on a united front in support of men's health, inspiring men and women to get involved and support our fundraising drive this Movember.


“This year has not been an easy one on many levels and the challenges are most likely to continue, impacting all areas of our life, including our health.”


She added: “We've seen men embrace facial hair during lockdown and are now asking that they put that practice to good use and grow what could be the most important mo they ever grow.”


More than a fifth of men (22 per cent) reported their mental health had worsened compared with before the outbreak of COVID-19 and a third (29 per cent) admitted they felt lonely more often.
Dr Zac Seidler, Director of Mental Health Training, at Movember said: “These findings indicate that guys are hungry for connection and in need of support in these trying times.


“While we know these conversations can often feel uncomfortable or awkward, checking in on your mates and loved ones can make the world of difference”.
