Recent research by The Princes Trust and UCL reveals that 40% of young people are anxious about meeting others and more are staying virgins for longer than previous generations.

Produced by Double Act Television, a representative said: “This series uncovers a hidden issue totally at odds with the hyper-sexualised media portrayal associated with young people today. 

"Addressing this in a sensitive and responsible way will provide contributors and audiences with a much more accurate picture of what many young people in Britain today are really experiencing.”
