The TV show has the aim of increasing body positivity and confidence through embracing and normalising nudity.
And this first season has already wowed viewers and the contestants have radically improved their confidence after just one week.
Here’s everything you need to know about the show – the presenters, the cast and whether there will be a grand finale!

What is Naked Beach about?
Naked Beach is an experiment of body positivity.
Dr Keon West has claimed that people’s body image, self-esteem and happiness could be greatly improved by seeing more nakedness.
Each week three people lacking in body confidence will join a ‘host’ cast of near-naked and body confident Brits on a faraway sunny island.
However, the body confident cast will only be wearing body paint, in the hopes that it will inspire their guests to strip off and embrace their naked bodies at the end of the week.
Who are the presenters?
Dr Keon will be leading as the show’s expert.
He is a lecturer in Psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London and has previous experience working in TV as he presented the BBC documentary, Across Jamaica’s Gay Divide.
And Dr Keon will be joined by mental health campaigner Natasha Devon MBE.

We want #nakedbeach to be watched by families & shown in classrooms to help confront Britain’s messed up attitude toward nudity (ie that it’s only acceptable when it’s ‘sexy’). https://t.co/I7dpxSeWGu

Who is baring all on the beach?
There are eight body-confident people entering Naked Beach as the host cast.
This includes the likes of Felicity Hayward, Ayesha Perry-Iqbal and Jsky.
Yet, it is their task to make the three people who aren’t body confident in each episode get to the same levels of confidence!
