Anna Richardson Reveals Naked Attraction Contestant Was Escorted Off Set After Excitable Moment

What goes up, must come down.

It’s one of the naughtiest shows on the box, so there shouldn’t be much that surprises us about Naked Attraction any more, but host Anna Richardson has a story to change that. 

The presenter has revealed one contestant was marched off set after getting a little too *ahem* excited while filming. 

Now, if you haven’t seen Naked Attraction before, the Channel 4 dating show sees a contestant presented with five coloured pods that slowly rise up to reveal parts of their potential dates’ body.

But one singleton had a bit of a hard time containing his excitement, with Anna telling the Andy Jaye Podcast: “We did have a couple of seasons ago, there was a young man who I think might have been in the pink pod and he was getting a little bit excited about what was about to happen.”

She continued: “So our lovely floor manager, Dave the floor manager, had to go ‘come on’ and just had to escort him off the floor for a little while, just to calm down. And then he was brought back onto set.”

Anna added: “It all happens. Boys being boys – you can’t control your anatomy, can you?”

During the interview, Anna also revealed the temperature of the studio is a constant topic of discussion on set. 

She revealed: “The boys always want the studio to be warm, and they’re all doing that crafty tug behind the pods because they want their manhood to look their very best.

“They’re always fiddling and touching… whereas the girls want the studio to be freezing because they want their boobs to look their very best.”

While the Channel 4 dating show has become famed for its saucy format, it has been praised on number of occasions in the past for its trans inclusivity and hosting important conversations about HIV.

Anna previously hailed it a “celebration of diversity”, telling the Press Association: “When you look at other reality shows and other reality dating shows, they tend to focus on perfection, youth, beauty, everything that is really transient and fake in the world. 

“And so with Naked Attraction, we are as real as real can be, and I think that’s why cross-generationally, people really enjoy it.”

She went on to say: “The very fact that we were able to create a show that is absolutely about acceptance and accessibility – and there’s nowhere else on television that you’re going to see naked trans people talking about their bodies.

“So it’s actually a massive celebration, and that’s why I think it does really, really well. And even though it’s controversial, I think it’s also really celebrated, because even though it’s about nakedness, it’s actually about acceptance and inclusion.”
