ITV’s massive dating show, Love Island, pretty much blows any other TV programme out of the water over the summer in the UK.
With Love Island’s savage challenges and tests such as the lie detector episode, you’d think that reality TV dating shows couldn’t get any more awkward.
But it turns out that over in the USA they’ve kicked things up a notch and launched Temptation Island.
Temptation Island isn’t just a dating show, it’s a social experiment. The title doesn’t leave too much to the imagination – couples are going to be tempted to stray, we can say that much!
So what is Temptation Island on Sky TV all about? Meet the cast and the show’s presenter…
What is Temptation Island on Sky?
Four unmarried couples opt-in for the experience of a lifetime on E! Entertainment’s Temptation Island.
The couples fly out to the Island to be faced with 24 singletons – but will they avoid temptation? Or will the couples be finished for good?
Love Island’s got nothing on the sheer savagery of Temptation Island as the couples arrive together but have the potential to leave alone.
At least on Love Island, it’s an even playing field – worst-case scenario you’ll leave with what you came with, but the US show is the ultimate social experiment for the couples.
The US show kicks off from August 4th on E! Entertainment (Sky channel 123).
