Undressed: New reality show sees strangers strip each other and share a bed to 'accelerate intimacy'
A hit Italian reality show in which strangers strip off and share a bed is getting an English language version on TLC UK.
It makes First Dates and that show's traditional blind dates look like a walk in the park as strangers looking for love (or lust) have to overcome their inhibitions immediately upon meeting.
Not only do they strip, but they strip each other. They start off by shaking hands and then get to work undressing their partner before hopping in to bed for 30 minutes to do whatever they feel is right.
In case they get tongue-tied there's a TV screen providing questions they can ask each other.
After the 30 minutes they press a button saying yes or no to staying in bed together so there will be even more awkwardness.
Speaking to the Daily Mail the producers Fizz said that stripping off helps to "accelerate intimacy" and challenges the "accepted rules of attraction".
The show will arrive on TLC this summer. In the meantime, here's a couple on the Italian version:
