Virgins ‘set to pop their cherries in front of the camera’ with the help of ‘sex surrogates’ on idyllic tropical island for new Channel 4 show

A host of aspiring TV stars are to lose their virginity on television with the help of sex experts, according to reports.

Virgin Island, which is set to air on Channel 4 later this year, will see people jet off to a tropical island with one sole purpose.

They will be joined in the idyllic location by a camera crew and producers who hope the cast will pop each other’s cherries in front of the lens.

However, if they struggle and get stage fright, they will have specialists known as ‘sex surrogates’ on hand to guide them.

A TV insider told The Sun: ‘There’s never been a TV show that pushes the boundaries quite like this — and probably never will be again.

‘The aim is to hopefully have all the virgins find each other attractive, but if that fails then this is the plan B.

‘These people are professionals who are constantly on hand for anything that may be required.’

Sex surrogates are experts when it comes to intimacy.

Medical professionals have been know to advise people seek help from them.

A session with a sex surrogate will start with a discussion about intimacy.

It can then move on to touching and may even advance to other sexual activities.

Any psychological or physical issues that arise during the sessions will hopefully be overcome.

The show has not yet started filming but it is expected to air on Channel 4 later this year.

MailOnline has contacted Channel 4 for comment.

It is claimed programme creators were struggling to find people willing to take part.

An insider said: ‘This is a bold social experiment as opposed to anything raunchy, so contributors shouldn’t feel afraid of coming forward.’

But it is said they’ve now found their participants so filming can go ahead.
