A new Channel 4 series featuring adults taking their clothes off in front of teenagers has provoked nearly 1,000 complaints from viewers and criticism from Conservative MPs.

The six-part show, Naked Education, stars a “naked brigade” of adults who strip off in the presence of teenagers aged 14 to 16. One episode educates viewers on female anatomy, while others tackle body image issues such as penis size, hair, cosmetic surgery and ageing.
