ETO can reveal that former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson could make a sensational return to TV screens in a new programme devoted to sex toys. The new show, called Toy Gear, is currently in production and is expected to air on Channel 5 later this year. It will be fronted by a trio of female presenters, at least one of whom is a well-known adult blogger and sex toy reviewer.
ETO understands that the magazine-style show has been initially commissioned for a seven-week run and that at least some of its content has been inspired by the BBC motoring show it almost shares its name with. Every week the presenters will discuss industry news and developments, provide consumer advice, review sex toys and take part in a series of challenges.
Toy Gear will also have a lingerie section which will feature a celebrity guest each week – Star in a Reasonably Priced Bra will challenge the celeb to perform a range of everyday activities, including yoga exercises, hanging out a basket of washing and cooking a full English breakfast, while wearing a low-cost brassiere which has been sourced from a High Street chain store.
Clarkson, whose BBC contract was not renewed following a much-publicised ‘fracas’ with a producer last month, has been earmarked to head up a weekly four minute section which will focus on male sex toys, with a particular emphasis on masturbators.
Toy Gear is a Frail Loop Television production and the company’s PR and marketing manager Agatha Snide told ETO: “Frail Loop Television is one of the UK’s foremost independent television production companies, specialising in devising popular formats and factual programming in challenging subject areas. Toy Gear will attract a varied cross section of viewers to Channel 5 and we expect it to become one of the channel’s most talked about and popular programmes.”
