Netflix’s first trailer about their new dating show, Sexy Beasts, has had the Internet in an uproar - and we’re not surprised. The dating show, which lands on the streaming platform on 21 July, claims to take looks out of the equation by “using fantastical, cutting edge prosthetics to transform the daters - giving them a chance to find love purely based on personality”.

Another added: “I realise I'm being a Debbie downer here but these seem to be conventionally attractive people of approximately the same age and wealth bracket, I think they'll figure out a way to get past the animal masks.” A third tweeted: “I can’t get over this show, it looks like the worst thing I’ve ever seen and I will watch every single episode.”
