Tyson Beckford has taken his kit off for a good cause, posing nude in a hot centrefold for Cosmopolitan in order to raise awareness of male cancer.

The suave model and television presenter will be starring in the upcoming series of Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model for the second year in a row after a successful stint as a judge on the panel in 2012.

And in the run up to the popular TV show, Tyson certainly isn't afraid to prove to the new model hopefuls just how qualified he is to be judging their efforts by posing up a storm for Cosmopolitan's July issue.

Tyson, 42, has bagged the centrefold for this month's Cosmo in aid of Cancer Research UK and has got us a little hot under the collar with this sexy picture, which sees the former Ralph Lauren model undoing his jeans and displaying his numerous tattoos.

But looking this good doesn't come without its sacrifices and Tyson admits that keeping in shape is a dedicated lifestyle choice.

"You can get a new phone or new trainers but you've only got one body so you have to look after it. I don't smoke, or drink a lot of alcohol, and I train almost every day," he told Cosmopolitan.

Tyson has modelled for countless designers, appeared in a variety of music videos and even hosted his own television show called Make Me A Supermodel.

And he's taken his shirt off a fair amount of times too!

So in all of his time in the industry and being surrounded by beautiful women, who is the most famous lady he's seen without their clothes on?

"The most famous woman I've seen naked? Naomi Campbell," he added.
