don’t be put off, the lewdest part is the title

Merciful to all of us Drawers out: The Big Naked Painting Challenge (Channel 4) is a teatime show. If it was a nighttime slot, imagine the frontal assault. But at 5:30 it’s downright posh. This is a lifetime competition, but the models maintain their modesty thanks to some strategically placed props.

In the first series of the show, which aired last year, each of the five contestants posed once. That idea has now been scrapped in favor of professional models, which feels like a better idea. The host is the same: Jenny Eclair, who is spot on for the show. She is eager to encourage the candidate and resists the temptation to crack allusive jokes at every opportunity. It’s spotless. The only jokes about nudity are in the show’s title.

A certain level of talent is required of the contestants that weeds out all wannabe reality shows. Those five, who will compete against each other over the course of a week, included a retired graphic designer with a dashing scarf and a 20-year-old “self-taught hairstylist”. As the voiceover noted, “Those are three words you never want to hear together.”

A Belfast man said he was “drinking and drawing” heavily. Did you hear about it? I stumbled across this the other day while walking past a place that advertised painting parties and inquiring about booking a kids birthday party. Turns out they’re only for adults, and it’s all about painting while happily sloshing.

Anyway, Drawers Off is alcohol-free, but everyone still seems to be having a good time. Some of the participants explained how art has helped their mental health. Lizzie, a live wedding illustrator, suffered from low spirits, but drawing “gets her blissful”; Retired accountant Sophie was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease, but rediscovering art through a life course had lifted her spirits.

Participants rate each other’s work, with a winner announced at the end of the week. “Don’t feel guilty – it’s a competition, there’s £1,000 up for grabs!” Eclair told a boy who worried about being too critical. It’s a good-natured little show.
