Netflix's Too Hot to Handle is about to replace the Love Island gap in your life

Netflix's Too Hot to Handle is the dating show you're about to become obsessed with.

On first impressions, it's reminding us of like Love Island, possibly the biggest reality dating show to date with series broadcast in several different countries.

Ten people are picked to join the cast and they'll live together in a villa located somewhere hot and tropical, sound familiar?

Oh and if that wasn't reason enough, it's also similar to the Netflix dating show that people have gone crazy for in recent weeks.

New dating series Too Hot to Handle arrives on April 17 and it's a similar premise to Love is Blind.

Instead of not being able to see each other, the Too Hot to Handle contestants are forbidden from kissing, touching or indeed any close contact.

Considering sexual attraction is key at the beginning of a relationship, it will be interesting to see how this particular rule pans out.

The official description:

"Ten young, hot singles from around the world come together in a tropical paradise for what they think will be the most exotic and erotic summer of their lives — but there’s a twist. These commitment-phobes who love a casual hook-up, will have to give up all hanky panky for the entire retreat if they want to win the $100,000 grand prize.

"No kissing, no heavy petting, and no self-gratification of any kind. With every slip, the prize money goes down. In this luxury no-bone zone, will the serial singletons be able to form deeper emotional connections? Or will the temptation simply be too hot to handle?"

The cast for the new show has not yet been revealed but with the scheduled streaming date coming up in just a couple of weeks, we're likely to hear more in the coming days.
