Man Who Was On The Great Sex Experiment Shares What Happened When Cameras Were Off
| Last updated
A man who appeared on Open House: The Great Sex Experiment has shed light on what it was like being on the raunchy reality TV show.
If you haven't seen it, basically a load of couples head to a luxury retreat full of singletons to have a dabble at opening up their relationship.
As you can probably imagine from that brief synopsis, the show has produced exactly the kind of cringe-inducing scenes Channel 4 was presumably hoping for.
And behind the scenes, it seems the show lived up to its name too.
Lewis Ellis was among the singletons to take part in the show, and he said when the cameras weren't running, the bonking very much continued.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: "Everyone was shagging.
"You've got the couples in the mansion, but all of us guys were in cabins, they've got like eight in a row, it was quite cosy."
Lewis – who was also previously on The Apprentice, which seems quite a pivot, in the world of reality TV – added that nights were often sleepless due to all the rumpy pumpy.
He reasoned: "You put like 16 single people that are all quite raunchy in the same place, they're all going to start f***ing each other.
"You could hear the cabins rocking! Like you have one person f***ing, but because they're all connected your cabin is shaking and four cabins down you're trying to guess which one they're shagging in."
Oh Lewis, what would Lord Sugar think of all this depravity?
Well, Lord Sugar was actually there with Lewis – in ink form. Yes, Lewis ended up getting Sugar tattooed on his forearm in 2019, after the businessman publicly ridiculed his extensive inkings.
Responding to Lewis' explanation that the tats tell his story, 75-year-old Sugar tweeted: "Lewis your tattoos tell your story. What are you a Kindle?

"You have the right to do what you want to your body. I have the right of an opinion. I say they are horrible.
"When you're 50 on the beach you'll wear a T shirt. You will be an embarrassment to your kids."
Bizarrely, Lewis responded by getting a tattoo of 'Sir Alan Pacino'
Speaking to the Daily Mail about the bizarre ode to his time with Sugar, Ellis explained: "I thought adding Lord Sugar would be a great reminder of my time on the show.
"I've always said my tattoos tell my story and now this part of my life is there forever.
"So I wanted the tattoo to tell the story of what happened to me on the show which ultimately of course ended up with me being fired which is why he's holding the gun.
"He also said that my kids wouldn't want to look at my tattoos when I had children. Maybe now there'll be one he will be happy for them to look at."
