In many ways, it’s no surprise these days when the stars of a new reality show have appeared on another series previously. In fact, the ones who haven’t are probably more of a rarity.

So perhaps it should be even less of a surprise (given that the shows have a common theme) to discover that Too Hot To Handle’s Lydia Clyma also appeared on E4’s very open show, Sex Clinic; opening with the line: "I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t do."

She's also appeared on Ibiza Weekender, just FYI.

In a show aired last year, Lydia - an MMA cage girl, who enters as a new contestant half way through Too Hot To Handle - popped in to see nurse Sarah Mulindwa (rather than her private, local sexual health clinic, obviously) worried about a recent sexual partner.

‘I think the last person I had sex with probably [got] around, so there’s obviously always a high possibility…’ she says when asked why she’s worried she could have an STI, before admitting that she doesn’t use protection. ‘I feel it’s a guy thing to remember,’ she adds. ‘If I’m taking contraception, that’s their part of the deal.’

In the end, nurse Mulwinda sends her for several tests, including a rectal swab on telly, after Lydia says she’s had anal sex without protection. Though she does clarify: ‘They can’t put it back in the front once it’s been in the back.’ Sure.

In the end, Lydia comes back clear of all STIs, promising, ‘I will now [use condoms], I never want to be this nervous again in all my life.’
