Actor Danny Dyer is set to recall losing his virginity for a new Channel 4 show – leaving his daughter absolutely mortified.
Fortunately, it’s all for a good cause. Well, we think. Called Let’s Talk About Sex, the three-part series is on a mission to open up a conversation about sex. And to do that, the show looks to a handful of celeb parent-and-child duos to broach the topic.
And Daddy Dyer is set to open the conversation to his 11-year-old daughter Sunnie with just the subtly you’d expect from the EastEnders star, revealing he started having sex at age 14, “before [he] started puberty” (via The Sun).
“14? You had sex at 14?” his daughter replies in shock. “That’s like me having sex at 14!”
“Well, that won’t be happening,” he quickly warns her.
Other stars set to air their sexual anecdotes on TV include Miriam Margolyes OBE, Stephen Mangan, Alastair Campbell, Phil Wang, London Hughes, Kieron Richardson and Ulrika Jonsson, who will appear with her 14-year-old daughter Martha.
The celebs will be invited to comment on old and new sex education videos, ahead of the subject becoming mandatory in for all school children in England from September 2020.
According to Channel 4, the celebrities will discuss all manner of topics: “From watching how sex educators have handled erections and managed menstruation to how they’ve dealt with the LGBT+ issues and the challenges of masturbation – no subject will be off limits.”
But, let’s face it, when Danny Dyer is around, no topic is off-limits anyway.
Let’s Talk About Sex starts Friday 5th April at 10pm on C4
