TV bosses are planning to launch a nude version of 'Big Brother' in the UK.
After 'The Nak'd Truth' caused a storm across the pond in the US, telly chiefs are now searching for eight potential housemates who are prepared to live without clothes for 30 days at a nudist resort in the sun-soaked destination of Florida.
Producers are appealing to people of all shapes and sizes to audition for the show next month in Blackpool.
Harris Salomon, creator of 'The Nak'd Truth', told the Daily Star newspaper: "We plan to take eight Brits and literally strip them naked. We want some seriously interesting Brits to make the line-up. The plan is to roll the show out across the world.
"Clothing is such an integral part of who we are and we don't understand how it affects us until we no longer have it on."
Construction manager Tom Annandale, 28, has already been picked out as a potential contestant after his failed tennis court streak attracted the attention of some 60 million viewers on video streaming website YouTube.
He said: "I have had a massive amount of attention worldwide from TV companies but this is the most curious. It makes 'Big Brother' look really tame."
Meanwhile, Josie Gibson - who won last year's series of 'Big Brother' - has landed her own fly-on-the wall documentary show, which will also feature her boyfriend and fellow contestant John James Parton.
A Channel 5 spokeswoman said: "We can confirm that Josie is filming a behind-the-scenes documentary for us called 'There's Something About Josie'."
