What it’s REALLY like to star on Naked Attraction, from auditioning nude on WhatsApp to pubic hair contracts and NO payment

Fabulous Digital chatted to three former contestants about what it's like to show your privates to two million people.

“I got naked on WhatsApp in front of two strangers”

Mum-of-three Clare West, 33, from Nottingham, appeared on Naked Attraction in December.

Clare was feeling down about a relationship breakdown when she received an Instagram message from the Naked Attraction producers, asking her to be on the show.

“I couldn’t believe it. I don’t know how they found me!” Clare, a hairdresser, told Fabulous Digital.

“They arranged a video chat with me via my mobile. They asked me what I liked in a man. I told them I liked a medium-sized penis.”

Then – at their request – she stripped. “I was in my kitchen and I just whipped off my dressing gown," she said.

"I turned around and they examined me. They complimented my physique which was flattering.”

Clare said it wasn’t awkward and she felt totally comfortable. “I was in my own home and there was a man and a woman interviewing me,” she said.

“I knew if I was going to get starkers on telly I had to be comfortable doing it on WhatsApp.”

A week later she travelled to Manchester for filming, which started at 7am.

Clare met the other contestants backstage – but not the man who would be picking a date. It turned out he was called Derry, a businessman. “I’m pretty confident and I love my 36C breasts so I felt all right stripping off in front of the cameras, crew and producers,” she said.

Clare didn’t prepare in any particular way for the show. “I’m always groomed and hair-free down there,” she said. “So there was no need for me to do anything extra-special. And I only had a week to prepare so I didn’t get into shape – but I was going to the gym anyway. I didn’t even try out any special poses in front of the mirror.”

During the first round Derry complimented Clare’s neat vagina and she went through to round two – but this is where she got rejected. “He said my shoulders were too big,” she said. “I wasn’t disappointed… I do work out and I’m proud of how I look and how I am strong. Plus I didn’t fancy him. He wasn’t my type at all.”

Clare joked the heat in the studio was a “bit nippy” but she loved the experience. “There was a bit of waiting around naked while they re-filmed takes, but I really enjoyed it,” she said.

“And the girls who were naked were lovely. We all really got on. We’ve actually been in touch since. We have a WhatsApp group called Naked Attraction.”

When it came to watching the show, she was happy. “I thought I looked good,” she said. “Although I did watch it alone. My mum, Tracey, 51, has since watched it but my dad, Victor, 49, refuses.

“I got such nice messages on social media afterwards and some clients at the salon recognised me too and were really positive. It’s been great. It’s boosted my self-confidence and although I’m still single it’s just what I needed after my breakup.”

"I signed a contract confirming I wouldn’t shave my pubic hair"

Jimmy Ladgrove, 28, from Bristol, appeared on series two of Naked Attraction in 2017. 

Jimmy Ladgrove was keen to take part in Naked Attraction after watching the first series with a pal.

He is pansexual – won’t define who he fancies by gender – which he thinks made his application stand out. “I think they liked that I would date anyone: man or woman, but didn’t define myself as bisexual, and also I’ve got a distinctive look,” he told Fabulous Digital.

Jimmy “had to sign a contract” saying he “wouldn’t shave” his foot-long beard, hairy chest and mane of pubes ahead of his TV appearance.

But he thinks his excess body hair put off a girl on the show. “I was going to pick her but she looked horrified when she saw me,” he said. “You can’t hide your body language and she obviously didn’t fancy me – I’m very slender and hairy. I don’t think she liked that.”

Despite his personal appearance, Jimmy doesn’t find body hair a turn on. “I’m not into beards on men and I don’t like pubes on anyone," he said. "So when I was on Naked Attraction and confronted with a full bush I immediately said no.”

Jimmy found stripping off in front of the TV crew a struggle at first and said the audition process was “quite rigorous”. He added: “I’m not that body confident and all these people were wandering around on telly, naked.

“But I found the series really inclusive. Channel 4 would pick anyone irrespective of body type and sexuality or race. There’s no airbrushing. It’s great – really positive.”

Jimmy picked “a couple of girls and boys”. “There were some replacements because some people back out at the last minute,” he explained. “There was a woman with a full bush, which I hate, and a huge penis winking at me – I don’t like big willies.”

Eventually he chose to take the man on a date. And they went out the next day, followed by producers. “We were given £50 to spend on drinks and got on well and kissed,” he said. “It went really well, we had loads in common. We had a few dates but it fizzled out… he lived too far away.”

Jimmy, who is currently single, jokes his beard can get in the way of intimacy. “It’s not very practical,” he said.

He’d recommend people go on Naked Attraction – having been spotted scores of times in the street following his star turn. “I’ve no regrets,” he finished. “It’s lots of peoples worst nightmare but I had a ball.”

"I got offered £200 to take my kit off in the pub"

Jessica Derry, 20, from Stoke-on-Trent, has had a few weird encounters since being on the show last year – and her mum and dad still refuse to watch it. 

Jessica Derry auditioned for Naked Attraction in a bid to “boost” her confidence.

Since her TV appearance she has been asked for selfies by strangers on nights out and offered £200 to strip at a pub.

“A pub customer said, 'You got them off on telly, so why can’t you get them off in front of us?' It was a bit weird,” she told Fabulous Digital.

Contestants do not get paid to appear on the programme, but do get £75 if they're on standby and not used.

Jessica applied for the show after seeing an advert on Facebook. “I’d not long given birth to my boy and my body confidence didn’t exist,” she said. “I thought, why not let other people judge me on my body? I had nothing to lose.”

She had to bare all during a Skype interview with producers, which she found “funny and exhilarating”. Four days later, she travelled to Manchester to film her episode.

“I didn’t make any changes to my appearance before I went on the show – I’ve shaved my pubic hair since I was a teenager as I don’t like having a full bush, and I didn’t even go to the gym or for a spray tan,” she said. “My baby was only eight months old, so I was quite exhausted to be honest.”

Jessica appeared in one of the pods and was turned down by Disney-obsessed virgin Josh, 20, the self-proclaimed "Southern Serpent" from Bristol, who said he was put off by her accent.

“He said I was too northern – even though I’m from the Midlands,” she said. “It didn’t actually bother me because he wasn’t my type.

“He also said I had nice blonde hair and a nice smile, like one from a rom com. I’d been so nervous that he’d say things like I had a fat belly or that my vagina doesn’t look good, and he didn’t.”

Jessica only told her family and a close friend she was going on the show – but her parents refused to watch it. “I think my mum thought I was joking when I told her about it,” she said. “My dad was like, ‘Well if I said no you would have done it anyway.’ Mum and dad went into another room; they still haven’t seen it, they said it felt too weird.”

While being on the show hasn’t helped her to find love, it’s given her a taste for reality TV. “I’d love to go on The Circle,” she said. “I don’t think it’s my time to find love at the moment. When I went on the show I thought it was, but I’ve had a past relationship that wasn’t the best, so I think I’ve got to find myself all over again before I try to meet anyone new.”

Naked Attraction is produced by Studio Lambert. A Studio Lambert spokeswoman told Fabulous Digital: “We cast in various ways that are convenient to contributors across the country.  In certain situations where a meeting in person is not possible, we offer alternative methods such as Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp.”
