Newly single Nadia Bartel and Shane Warne’s ex-wife Simone Callahan, along with a bevvy of other Aussie female celebs, have taken to social media to share some rather racy behind-the-scenes snaps after they quite literally bared all in front of the entire country on Sunday night.

A million people tuned in to watch the group of eight brave and beautiful - which also included singer Casey Donovan, Home and Away star Lynne McGranger and swimmer Lisa Curry - glam up and strip off in Channel 7’s TV event, The All New Monty: Ladies’ Night.

And now, the day after the risqué charity special aired, Nadia, Simone et al have posted body-baring pics from their photo shoot with breast cancer charity So Brave, which saw them pose sans clothes with only a layer of glitter protecting their modesty.

Nadia bares all

Mum-of-two and WAG Nadia posted a “flashback” selfie to her Instagram stories of herself and soap star Lynne on Monday, showing the pair draped in matching silky black robes with just a hint of their body glitter on show.

The duo sported stick-on jewels on their foreheads and around their eyes as they beamed backstage at the photoshoot.

Nadia, who split from her husband of five years, Geelong Cats star Jimmy Bartel, after the show was taped in March, also shared another selfie sans robe, showing off her hot pink glitter-coated chest and neck.

Fellow Ladies’ Night beauty and athlete Lisa also posted a pic of herself glittered-up and ready for the camera while yoga guru Simone shared a side-on shot but opted to use the So Brave tag to censor her assets.

‘We had tape on our nipples!’

In an exclusive chat with Yahoo Lifestyle ahead of the show’s broadcast, mum-of-three Simone remembered the shoot as the ‘funniest yet most painful’ moment of the whole process.

“We had to have glue stuck all over our bodies and then they put glitter [on us],” the 49-year-old revealed.

“When it came time to remove the glue and tape from the nipples and all that, that was horrendous,” she laughed.

“We had to get in taxis and there was glitter in the taxis. We had to get back to the hotel and there was glitter in the bathroom. There was glitter in our shoes for days!” she added.

“We all had marks on our boobs from where they had to tape up around our nipples. That was probably the funniest and most painful part of it all,” she said.

Lots of love for Ladies’ Night

So Brave is known for releasing a calendar featuring stunning photos of women affected by the disease, covered in nothing but body paint and glitter.

The “beautiful little part” of Simone and her fellow Ladies’ Night stars’ journey was featured in the program and has since been applauded on social media.

“It was amazing what you beautiful women did,’ wrote one fan.

“Absolutely stunning! 💕Thank you 🙏 for supporting @sobraveproject,” said another.

“You ladies did all woman of all ages so proud,” praised one.

“You guys should be empowered by what you was so fantastic, emotional and I would do the same,” commented another.

Going nude for charity

Similar to the all-male version, The All New Monty, which aired earlier this year, the female-only Ladies’ Night aims to raise awareness for women’s health, particularly breast cancer.

Elsewhere in her chat with Yahoo Lifestyle, Simone explained why raising awareness of women’s health, particularly breast cancer, is so important to her.

“I think it’s something that affects a lot of families, I’ve had cousins go through it, and I have a cousin who is very unwell at the moment. I’ve lost friends to it,” she reveals.

“We have to focus on ourselves before we can look after anyone else,” she says.

The All New Monty: Ladies’ Night airs 7pm Sunday September 29 on Channel 7.
