NETFLIX’S Too Hot To Handle went out with a bang when 14 singletons blew three-quarters of their prize money to get frisky in front of the cameras.
The Love Island rival sees the $100,000 (£72,525) prize fund up for grabs decrease if the randy contestants indulge in any sexual contact, which includes kissing and self-pleasure.
But there was barely any money left by the end of their three-week stint of filming. I can reveal the full breakdown of their losses — which eventually equalled $70,000 (£50,770) — left just $30,000 (£21,760) in the pot.
Over the course of the series, there were ten illicit snogs, three cases of “inappropriate touching”, one self-pleasuring, an instance of excessive grinding and one bank-busting sex session.
The British contingent, including Emily Miller and Cam Holmes, of the global cast were the worst behaved, costing the group $26,000 (£18,860).
But the costliest one-off act was when New York model Melinda Melrose and Parisian hunk Marvin Anthony had a late-night sex session in the communal bedroom, while others slept beside them.
That sort of action would leave this year’s Love Islanders blushing. The ITV2 series has already been on for almost two weeks but the couples have been void of chemistry, with very little going on between the sheets.
Mind you, the antics of Too Hot To Handle would be too X-rated even for Love Island.
STEPHEN HAS DRAW EMOTIONS
STEPHEN MULHERN was less than impressed with the artistic skills of his pals Ant and Dec when they sent him dodgy portraits of him.
The telly host, who presents with the duo on their Saturday Night Takeaway, is back on ITV tomorrow at 7pm with the second series of gameshow Rolling In It.
It sees celebrities and members of the public roll a giant coin towards slots in a bid to win £45,000.
Of his portraits, Stephen said he liked the one by Dec, above, best: He added: “They sent me two paintings they did of me. One was Ant’s and one was Dec’s and I had to choose which was best.
“But they weren’t very flattering. The one I did end up picking looked as though I’d been on a sunbed for a year and in lockdown for ten years as I had about 19 chins.
“It won’t even be hanging in my toilet.”
I think they’ve captured him quite well . . .
BBC1 and Apple TV+ are joining forces to make documentary 9/11: Inside The President’s War Room.
It is a minute-by-minute retelling of what happened at the White House during the New York terror attack on the World Trade Center to mark the 20th anniversary.
JAMES ON QUEST TO KICK CAKE
TV cameras are said to add pounds – but James Corden looks better than ever after losing two and a half stone on a new fitness regime.
But the Late Late Show presenter is still struggling to kick his sweet tooth.
James said: “My brain and body do not want to eat that piece of cake, but my hands are ramming it down. The best diet I could do is strap my arms to my body and I would shift this weight in a heartbeat.”
As a busy dad of three, James, a WW ambassador, begrudges spending any down time in the gym.
He added: “I’ve got an hour on my own. I should be lying on a couch staring at the corner of the rug.”
That my kind of workout.
JOE PROBE INTO FAMILY STRUGGLES
FITNESS favourite Joe Wicks is making a BBC documentary with Louis Theroux about the effect of mental health battles on families.
The personal trainer was dubbed the nation’s favourite PE teacher after providing free daily online workouts when schools were closed during the pandemic.
He turned to exercise after seeing his parents struggle with mental health. Dad Gary spent much of Joe’s childhood in and out of rehab battling a heroin addiction, while his mum Raquela struggled with obsessive compulsive disorder.
Joe said: “I have spent a lot of time helping people improve their physical health. But as a child who grew up with parents who struggled with their mental health, I know this is just as important, especially given what has happened over the past year.
“I want to help families that are in similar situations to the one I was in.
“I also want to share the message that exercise can be a powerful tool in boosting our mental health.”
In the documentary, Joe, who has a daughter Indie and son Marley with wife Rosie, a model, will meet some of the 3.7million children in England who are part of a family where an adult has mental health issues.
Executive producer Louis said: “I believe in Joe’s mission to improve mental wellbeing through exercise. This is a dream project for me.”
If he carries on at this rate, Joe’s MBE will be upgraded. Top man.
