Hugo Speer speaks out about his ordeal after being fired from The Full Monty

www.dailymail.co.uk, June 3, 2023
Hugo Speer, who was little less than a year ago, was enjoying a full life. He had a blissfully happy wife Vivienne, two wonderful daughters, Nico, now ten, and six-year-old Elki, and a wonderful family home in leafy North London, where children would leap over fences to play in each other's gardens. Hugo, a retired steel worker from Sheffield, was filming The Full Monty television drama for a hefty sum, with his Monty companions Robert Carlyle, Mark Addy, Paul Barber, Steve Huison, Lesley Sharp and Tom Wilkinson, 25 years after they made the wonderful original film about six unemployed steel workers from Sheffield, who formed a striptease group. However, this blessed life was marred last year when Hugo was barred from 'inappropriate behaviour' during filming in Manchester. His crime? He is struggling to understand it. Hugo was suspended for being caught undressed in the privacy of his own trailer while changing after a day of filming.
