'Playing It Straight' pushed back to April
The show, hosted by T4's June Sarpong, features an eligible female choosing her perfect partner from a group of 12 young men. The customary twist being that at least half of the men are gay and, should she ultimately choose a gay men, he'll walk away with a cash prize. If the man turns out to be straight, however, they'll split it.
The series originally ran in the US last year but was cancelled after just three episodes. The UK version, filmed in Mexico last summer, will be devoid of the "unpleasant twists" of its American counterpart.
"The show will differ from the usual 'queen' stereotype purveyed on other shows," a source told C21. "All of the men will be incredibly 'straight' in terms of looks and mannerisms. The bottom line is that you cannot tell who is straight or gay what with increasing metrosexuality. It will be a fascinating insight into the ways of the modern man."
