Naked Beach is a new reality TV show with a twist.

It follows the likes of Love Island – except the Channel 4 show's contestants aren’t wearing any clothes, and it’s less about dating and more about being comfortable in your own skin.

The show sees four British people go to Greece to spend time with body-positive people, covered only in paint.

They will have four days to work through their issues before they are asked to strip on the beach.

People online are loving the show and its diverse, inclusive approach to bodies.

'Groundbreaking'

'Life-changing'

'Thoughtful'

'Credit where credit is due'

People praised the contestants for their bravery in overcoming personal challenges

And others are happy to see people like them on the screens

The show's body positivity theme inspired its viewers

The program was created by Dr Keon West, a psychologist at Goldsmiths, University of London and mental health campaigner Natasha Devon. She said: “Britain has some of the lowest body image scores in the world”.

Studies show that 75 per cent of women are unhappy with the way they look and 45 per cent of men hate what they see in the mirror.

Naked Beach continues Thursday at 8pm on Channel 4.
