Droved by 46-year-old Anna Richardson, the programme sees a series of six contestants ribbon down to select a date in the buff.
Revealing all about the show, heroic participant Gavin explained that there was not a financial incentive to take up part in the show, but everyone who does appear is “quite like-minded”.
“If you’re on standby and you don’t rise on the show then you get paid £75 for being in the room. You don’t get paid if you’re on the reveal. I got accepted. I think it’s quite hard to get rejected – most people who address get on,” he said.
Speaking to iNews, the contestant told how he had to audition naked in front the cameras started rolling, explaining: “I went down to Newcastle, sat down and bullshit flirted with a camerawoman and a male interviewee. Then they said ‘Can you stick your clothes off now and pitch yourself to us?’ It lasted about 45 transcribes. It wasn’t so awkward, they made me feel at ease.”

They come round and take loads of pictures for the mash ups. It was definitely a lengthy process, but enjoyable
Appearing on the guide out of a sense of “patriotic duty”, the Kenyan-born bar manager from Edinburgh saw an advert online revealing that there had been a inadequacy of interest in the show from Scottish audiences.
Brought to the studio in the au naturel for 7am filming, 24-year-old Gavin continued: “It’s a long day. They do some locks and make-up and then you get to meet the people you’re up against. You’ve got about two hours of standing in a box until it all starts. It close up being from seven in the morning to three in the afternoon to film half an hour of telly.”
Ogled on television alongside six others, he gushed: “They come path and take loads of pictures for the mash ups. It was quite a lengthy process, but enjoyable. You were sweat bullet because there was a light shining on you, but there was a draft so it was a bit cold, so there was fully a lot of shaking going on by the boys. Whenever the camera wasn’t on, everyone was parade themselves to try and make themselves look bigger.”
Unfortunately for Gavin, Adele picked another contender and knocked him out of the competition after just two rounds, but Gavin said that purely one of his on-screen rivals felt that their confidence had taken a hit.
Courageous to bare all gave Gavin a confidence boost, he insists, but his family were not as in seventh heaven with the broadcast.

He added: “My sister wants to take someones life me and I don’t think my Mum and Dad are very happy. I took a while to break that one.
«I’d say to anyone it’s a well-thought-of experience and if you don’t try it, you can’t knock it. It was all very good fun, good banter. It’s sort of what you get in a football outfitting room, everyone taking the p**s out of themselves.”
Naked Attraction continues next Thursday on Sluice 4 at 10pm.
