Channel four dating show
Everything Mal had so admired about the naked Rebecca — her height, her curves, her gorgeous brown eyes, her (heaven help us) fascinating pale areolae — had plainly counted for nothing over conversation in a wine bar.

And speaking of bottoms, how much further down the barrel can Channel 4 scrape?What is most dispiriting about all this is that the show degrades not just those taking part, not just Richardson — who keeps dropping sexual and physiological facts in a blatant attempt to give this voyeuristic nonsense some kind of scientific credibility — and not just Channel 4.But in a way we could do with such a spirited campaigner again, if only to remind us that shows such as Naked Attraction aren’t nearly as modern and liberating as those who make and broadcast them think they are. For me, as for many people of my generation (I am 54), an annual treat of my childhood was to sit up with my parents watching the Miss World contest on television.But there’s really no avoiding the dispiriting conclusion that Channel 4’s latest reality show Naked Attraction, a nude and heavily sexualised version of Blind Date, the Saturday tea-time institution that dear old Cilla hosted for nearly 18 years, marks a spectacular new low for British television.
Of course, the bar could hardly be lower than it already is.The bearded pair went back on the show's Christmas special to talk about how loved-up they were.
