Our new series Love for Sale with Rupert Everett begins tonight (Monday 28th April) on Channel 4 at 10pm.
In episode 1 Rupert explores the motivations of sex workers, from the Exeter housewife who claims she loves her work, to the Liverpool street-walker, and from the Mayfair escort who charges £700 an hour, to the young rent boy on the backstreets of Tel Aviv.
Rupert offers a passionate defence of the dignity and rights of a group of people who he feels have been unjustly stigmatised for thousands of years.
This is an unusually truthful and honest insight into the sex trade, and a funny and sometimes angry attack on the hypocrisy that surrounds the subject.
“Everett is never less than outlandish, louche, charming, funny and irreverent.” The Times
“He brings warmth and humanity to a subject that is too often subjected to condemnation and shame.” The Sunday Times← Back to the news
