Naked Attraction Contestant Becomes First To Walk Off Set After Never Having Seen Naked Women Before
A contestant on Channel 4 dating show Naked Attraction has become the first person to walk off set, having become 'overwhelmed' as he'd never seen a naked body before - only to be faced with six.
In a preview clip ahead of next week's new season debut, host Anna Richardson meets a 23-year-old from Kent called Brian, who is a virgin.
As per the format of the show, wine buff Brian is shown six naked strangers in individual booths - each revealing more of their body as the round progresses.
Suddenly, Richardson spots that Brian looks distressed, and asks if he's okay.
"You look like you're about to faint, Brian," she says.
He replies: "I'm sorry, I need a moment."
Gesturing offstage, he adds: "Can I have a little moment?"
Richardson tells him to go and take five minutes and he walks off, as his prospective dates remain standing naked in their boxes.
Speaking afterwards, Brian admitted he found it all a bit much at first.
He said: "It's overwhelming, I mean, you know in a good way, perhaps I needed this. But I just need to let it sink in just a bit."

Richardson has since spoken about the series' first ever 'walk off', explaining how Brian had to take time off set.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, she said: "A young chap called Brian who is a virgin, a lovely guy, wine connoisseur and proficient musician, felt really faint when he was faced with six naked girls, and needed to take time off set and be consoled by producers.
"He was a good lad, he came back on and faced the rest of the show."
For the forthcoming seventh series, Richardson said the show had received more entries than ever before - adding that they'd been inundated with 'extraordinarily good people'.
She continued: "As well as Brian, we've had our oldest picker, Ian, who's 75 and a widower.
"In the latter years of his life he has embraced being a single man - a bisexual single man - so he's really going for it and exploring his sexuality.
"How great is it he's in his seventies and thought, 'I fancy playing around a bit, life isn't over and I'm still a sexual guy.'
"He also had the biggest piercing at the end of his penis that I have ever seen. It just goes to show, you never can tell what lurks beneath."
Naked Attraction begins on Tuesday 10 November at 10.20pm on Channel 4.
