Let's just hope there won't be a naked 'X Factor' anytime soon, we're not sure whether we want to see Simon Cowell in the buff! Each week, contestant Kathy selects one of two men to leave the island where they're casually gallivanting around with their coconuts hanging out.
At least some of the contestants looking for love "actually found it".
Ed Power at the Daily Telegraph says: "Channel 4's confusing remake of Free Willy marched on to a third episode, oblivious, it seemed, to the howls, hoots and widespread consensus that this naked dating show represented a final harbinger of the apocalypse"."It was all quite icky and clinical", he adds.
But while it is "sensationalist and lowest dominator with a vengeance", the ratings for "one of Channel 4's most exploitative forays to date", speak for themselves, he admits - 1.4 million people tuned in to the opening episode and viewership for the second eclipsed Celebrity Big Brother. "By Christmas, Channel 4 News presenters will doubtless be reading the headlines in bra and/or y-fronts."It's an awful concept for a show, agrees Ellie Walker-Arnott in the Radio Times, but it does have "one saving grace": it's "showing real bodies on TV".
These days we’re supposed to be more “connected” than ever, but it’s actually harder than ever to truly connect.
Online dates, blind dates, and the latest in ridiculous dating apps all make it hard to see people for who they really are.
