Striptease artists asked to take part in Naked Attraction
'Naked Attraction' - a dating show where participants strip naked to find love - has been forced to call upon striptease artists
'Naked Attraction' has begged "burlesque performers" to star on the show following a drought in female contestants applying.
The Channel 4 show - which sees single men and women decide who they want to date by looking at their future lovers in the nude - has failed to attract women who are happy to strip off so they've offered to pay people who do it for a living to step in.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "There have been plenty of men willing to get their kit off on camera, but not enough women.
"So they've asked people who get naked regularly including burlesque performers - and are happy to pay them expenses for their time."
A Channel 4 spokeswoman said the new series will include people from "all walks of life" including a pilot, accountant and former soldier.
Despite having trouble finding female contestants willing to strip, show bosses think the formula is still a winner.
A source said: "The first series of 'Naked Attraction' proved that the nation has a fascination with full frontal nudity and seeing suitors being picked by their privates. It drew in fantastic viewing figures and stirred up quite a reaction on social media.
"There has therefore been little debate among bosses as to whether it should be recommissioned - and they have decided that they want a second series to air in the New Year."
And the show - which is fronted by Anna Richardson - is already looking for men and women who are "ready to take radical action to find their perfect partner".
The insider told the publication: "Studio Lambert who make the show were surprised during the first series by just how many members of the public were confident enough to sign up to strip off on TV.
"They're hoping they'll will have just a big an intake in the seconds series and have already put out ads online asking for willing individuals to star on the show."
In the advert for participants, Studio Lambert are calling for those with an "interesting body look" to apply.
They shared: "We are looking for men and women of all different body types, and looks, to take part in a new and exciting dating show. Do you have an interesting body look, for example, do you have pale skin and naturally ginger hair?
"We're looking for singles who are ready to take radical action to find their perfect partner. In this new show potential couples will be able to see each other in their naked glory from the very onset. Are you up for ... naked dating!"
