IT is the perfect recipe for love: Take ten toned men and women, submerge in steam then leave to simmer before serving up a hit dating show.
Too Hot To Handle, which returns to Netflix for a second series next week, sees a host of beautiful people being led into temptation in a tropical retreat – but there is a tantalising twist.
Unlike its rival, ITV2’s Love Island, the contestants on the Netflix show only win the cash prize if they manage to resist getting it on with somebody.
And that doesn’t just mean sex, it includes any form of physical contact, including kissing or caressing. In the ultimate test of abstinence, anyone taking part in this US show has to refrain from “self-gratification” or face seeing their cash prize of 100,000 dollars whittled down.
The first captivating season, filmed in Mexico, saw it become an instant hit around the world, topping Netflix’s “most watched” list in TEN countries.
Now it is back with fewer contestants but just as much heat as it shifts location to the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Bahamas with a collection of stunners from across the globe, including three Brits.
One of last year’s contestants Chloe Veitch, 22, from Essex, said: “The villa is full of sexy singletons, so everyone just wants to jump on each other.
“It’s like heaven. The villa is stunning, you’re always in a bikini, so everyone has always got their bodies out.
“They know what you’re doing all the time. There’s cameras everywhere.
“I resisted too much temptation because my family said to me before I went in, ‘Please dont have sex on telly’. And, trust me, one turn-off is the sound of your mum and nan echoing in your head.”
We take a look at this year’s luscious line-up.
- The first four episodes will be available on June 23 and the remaining six on June 30.

Larissa, 28, lawyer, New Zealand

PRO footballer Chase De Moor, from Arizona, is tall, dark and handsome – and gives himself “1,000 out of ten” in the sack. So maths isn’t his strong point.
