A controversial US TV channel where ‘girls next door’ are encouraged to strip and binge drink on camera has caused a scandal by announcing its first tour of Britain.

Girls Gone Wild coming to the UK

Adult channel Girls Gone Wild has become notorious in America for hosting wild parties where ordinary women are encouraged to strip and perform provocatively.

But the show has now caused outrage by revealing it plans to move across the pond for the first time and hold a tour of Britain.

Organisers have conducted an online poll and compiled a list of towns and cities where fans have voted for the Girls Gone Wild bus to stop off.

However, many sleepy British towns are petitioning against the ”degrading” show and fear that it will ”exploit” innocent young women.

Cllr Jude Thurlow, 74, who lives in the market town of Selby, Yorks., said: ”I don’t know why people voted for Selby.

”Maybe we have lots of insomniacs who are up at that time of night to vote. I hope that they keep on moving rather than stopping here.

”Clearly things like this are exploitation. They are not doing it to promote joy, there is always a financial return for the company.

”But I’m prepared to meet the grandmothers of the girls for some Tizer and a game of scrabble while its all going on.”

Girls Gone Wild, which has been broadcasting for over 10 years, has built its reputation around holding scandalous parties with raunchy dress codes.

The tour bus will arrive in Britain in May this year and organisers plan to film the tour for two months before broadcasting the material on Sky Box Office Channel 933.

Planned locations include all of Britain’s major cities and smaller towns such as Wisbech, Cambs., Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, Cardigan, Wales, and Selby, Yorks.

However, one destination, the sleepy village of Ashurst Wood, Sussex, has rejected the show and banned it from visiting the local area.

An email from Ashurst Wood Parish Council ruled that Girls Gone Wild was: ”not an appropriate activity for a Parish Council to be involved with.”

A spokesman for Girls Gone Wild claims the tour will be ”well received” and added that they will allow young men and women to ”celebrate freedom and youthful expression”.

He said: ”Girls Gone Wild is an American phenomenon and a real household name in the States where the tours are always really well received.

”We are really excited about bringing the brand and its road show to the UK and we expect British young men and women to have a fantastic time at the events which are a really fun celebration of freedom and youthful expression.”
