There’s plenty of dating shows that push the boundaries, but is set to air a series that will show people having sex on screen.

The broadcaster is no stranger to offering up unique dating series, from people stripping down while dating on to strangers tying the knot on its sister channel E4 Married at First Sight.

But now it’s reportedly going by actually encouraging people to have sex on camera.

Instead of being a hook-up in a hotel, participants will be provided with Bluetooth sex so they can get intimate with each other online.

If they strike up a connection, they can then meet in person.

‘Channel 4 has aired some bizarre dating shows, but this will be the most outrageous,’ a source told .

‘They made a pilot towards the end of last year and the next phase is screen-testing it to audiences.

‘If it’s green lit, it is bound to cause controversy, but the series could also attract some big ratings.’

Currently named Sex First as its working title, the show is said to rely on the theory that perfect matches must have sexual chemistry first and foremost.

Single people will be introduced to each other online as avatars before ramping up their chemistry by having online sex, thanks to the Bluetooth-synced sex toys.

If they like what they experience and enjoy their first sexual encounter together, they can then meet to see if the bond is just as compatible in real life and decide whether to take it further still and start dating.

Set to air later this year, the series will undoubtedly make jaws drop as those watching along at home see how it all unfolds.
