On Sunday night, businesswoman Nadia Bartel performed bra-less for The All New Monty: Ladies’ Night to encourage women to get checked regularly for breast cancer. She joined a cast including Australian Idol winner Casey Donovan, model Rachael Finch and swimming star Lisa Curry in the inaugural event.
“I’m a mum to two beautiful boys, and their dad is ex-AFL player Jim Bartel,” Nadia said to the camera.
“It’s been a tough time personally for me recently,” Nadia, 34, admitted. “It’s just so painful.”
“I’m hoping with Ladies’ Night it will give me more confidence,” she said. “Obviously we’re there for the cause, but I think it will be great for me to put myself out there.”

“[It’s about] doing something that is definitely totally out of my comfort zone. I think it will give me a whole new load of confidence.”
But although the network tried to infer that Nadia’s involvement in The All New Monty was a post-split decision, previous advertisements for the show would suggest otherwise.
Indeed, it would appear the television show was in fact filmed a while ago, when the married couple were still together. However following their breakup, Jimmy was edited out of the Channel Seven show.
