TV show adds sex and gives it a big shake

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - JONATHON MORAN CHIEF EN­TER­TAIN­MENT WRITER

IT’S as if Mar­ried At First Sight has been su­per-sized — or, judg­ing by these rip­pling abs, per­haps put on diet shakes.

Chan­nel 9 will be bank­ing on these 10 cut and curvy Aussies to push tele­vi­sion bound­aries with the de­but of risque re­al­ity series Love Is­land. Hosted by So­phie Monk, the series is based off the hugely suc­cess­ful UK for­mat and will see the 10 housed in a lux­ury villa in Ma­jorca for up to six weeks. It’s Big Brother crossed with a sin­gles party.

Rugby player Charlie Tay­lor, 22, is the high­est profile of con­tes­tants, putting his bud­ding sport­ing ca­reer on hold to work out what he wants to do with his life.

“I am not go­ing on the show just to sleep with some­one,” Tay­lor said. “I am go­ing on the show to have a ball and hope­fully ... po­ten­tially, find love.”

Love Is­land will have its sea­son pre­miere on Nine’s Go! and Now chan­nels next Sun­day at 8.30pm.
