Davina McCall’s new show, Let’s Talk About Sex, has been slated by a family watchdog which has called it “misleading”, it has been reported.

The C4 show apparently sees Davina and four teenagers visit a Dutch Youth Centre where young children learn about sex acts, in a bid to examine the link between poor sex education and high teenage pregnancy rates.

But pressure group Family and Youth Concern has appealed for the show to be withdrawn, saying it does not represent all Dutch schools and that teenage pregnancy rates actually rose after sex education became compulsory, the Daily Mail reports.

Spokesman Norman Wells told the paper: “The explicit approach to sex education featured in this programme is not at all typical of Dutch schools, but represents the extreme end of a very broad spectrum.

“They omit to mention that in the years following the introduction of compulsory sex education classes in Dutch schools, teenage pregnancy went up rather than down.”

The show is due to be shown an hour before the watershed next month.
