  • Naked Attraction: How low can this Channel 4 dating show go

    We’d barely met host Anna Richardson (the only one who didn’t get her kit off, having flatly refused) and the first contestant, 32-year-old Aina, before the screens in front of them shot up and revealed six specimens of naked manhood from the waist down.
