Strip Date shows that appearances can be deceptive and you should never judge a book by its cover. Catch a double bill at 8pm every Tuesday on 5STAR.
We take two loveless singletons from completely different style tribes and transform them into each other’s perfect dates. They’re stripped back to basics then made over before going out on a blind date. At the end they slip back into their favourite outfits to reveal their true identities. Will opposites attract? Will love conquer style?
Tonight, north meets south as part-time model Sherry, from Barnsley, is introduced to her blind date, 21-year-old Zack from Essex. Shopaholic Sherry’s ideal man is actor Tom Hardy and she’s after perfect partner who will sweep her off her feet. Zack, who has just started his own clothing line, has never had a long term relationship and is looking for a stylish lady who takes time on her appearance. Music is on the agenda for their blind date when they learn how to play the drums in a steel band, but is love in the air?
Meanwhile, cocktail barman Shannon, 22, shows off his Geordie charm and mixes it up with 20-year-old Jade from Basingstoke. He’s looking for a girl who takes hours to get ready with long blonde hair, makeup and heels. Will Jade live up to his glamorous expectations?
Jade also likes long hair, but in a man, and she wants someone who will sport a standout look… as long as they don’t outshine her! We spice it up a bit and take them salsa dancing, where they’re put through their paces by teacher Rohan. Will they make all the right moves, or will it be a taxi for one?
