England international rugby player Ugo Monye is baring all today (16 May) to become the face (and body) of Molton Brown's new Sport grooming collection for men.

The Harlequins player stars in a head-turning photo shoot to celebrate the new collection which will appear in Molton Brown stores and online from mid-May, marking the first time London's bath, body and beauty connoisseurs have appointed a body for the brand.

Speaking about the launch, Monye said: "I love Molton Brown's new Sport Collection, it's a genuinely sports-focused range that smells great too. I carry the 4-in-1 Sportswash with me everywhere – whether I'm at training, in the gym or at home I can rely on it to do the job.

"The Body-Warming Sportsbalm is the perfect way to gear up for a match and the Anti-perspirant Sportstick keeps me dry all day when I'm out and about. I've always been a big fan of Molton Brown and I can't wait to be the face (and body) of the new collection."

Inspired by Vietnam's cassia fields but blended in London, the Sport range consists of a 4-in-1 Sportswash, Body-warming Sportbalm and Anti-perspirant Sportstick. The fragrance blend of cassia bark, nutmeg and lime runs across the range, helping to refresh and deodorise bodies put through their paces.


Notes for Editors:
The new range is now available and costs:
4-in-1 Sportswash (200ml) - £16
Anti-perspirant Sportstick (75g) - £16
Body-warming Sportbalm (200ml) - £18
