Creators of the US version of the reality TV sex show, which sees young women filmed stripping off on camera, are hoping to bring the format to Britain.

However, MPs in the north-east are adamant the show shouldn't come here; fearing Newcastle and other areas with a party-loving reputation could be targeted.
The politicians have approached the Home Office in a bid to ban the filmmakers from operating this side of the pond.
In the States, the Girls Gone Wild phenomenon, created by Mantra Films, has sparked widespread controversy, as drunk women are given merchandise in exchange for flashing for the camera.
MP for Gateshead Ian Mearns has tabled an early day motion which states: 'This House is deeply concerned that US pornography production company Mantra Films Inc is filming Girls Gone Wild in the UK, which approaches young women, many of them intoxicated, in public places, and encourages them to expose their breasts, simulate sex acts and have sex on camera in exchange for Girls Gone Wild merchandise.'
The motion calls the programme a 'form of demeaning, exploitative and casualised prostitution', which should not be brought to the UK.
Mr Mearns' motion comes after the first episode of MTV reality show Geordie Shore aired in the UK this week.
Newcastle residents were said to have been 'embarrassed' by the show, setting up Facebook pages calling for the programme to be axed.
