'Naked Attraction' Praised For 'Breaking Down Barriers' With Transgender Contestants
Two transgender contestants rocked up onto Naked Attraction last night and viewers thought it was brilliant.
For the first time, contestants who were mid-transition featured on the dating show and showed off their bodies.
Nineteen-year-old Felix who is transitioning from female to male and Isobel, 22, who is transition from male to female, both appeared on the show, looking for love and not at all shy about whipping their kit off to find it.

The pair were competing for the affections of 22-year-old Izzy, who is pansexual, and both got through to the second round.
Having the conversation about naked #trans people on #NakedAttraction...genuinely proud moment for me.

Unluckily for Felix, Izzy decided he wasn't edgy enough for her and he was the fourth contestant she eliminated.
Felix took the positives from the whole situation, though, saying: "It was great to be respected as a guy, regardless of what bits I have."
Isobel did slightly better, making it all the way into the final two, before Izzy chose dancer Eve as her date.
