Preston’s ‘part-time witch’ has appeared on new Channel 4 show Sex Rated.

Gideon Allen was a guest on the show, hosted by Rylan Clark and sex educator Ruby Rare, which helps singletons learn where they may be going wrong in love by asking for frank feedback from their past sexual partners.

Gideon – who uses the part-time witch title because he cast spells, makes potions, and is busy – says people will be shocked by his appearance.

Gideon said: “The show was pitched as light-hearted and educational, it’s like an alternative to Naked Attraction almost.

“They offered me a place and I said yes! Why not. I’m a very open-minded person and I believe people will learn a thing or two whilst watching.

“The sex-pert Ruby Rare is delightful. And Rylan is so down to earth.”

However Gideon says Rylan didn’t seem sure how to take him when they first met.

“He didn’t believe I was real at first, he thought he’d been set up,” said Gideon.

“We filmed right after he’d been set up by Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway, so maybe he assumed they’d done it again.

“The whole witchy vibes probably caught him off guard, as well as my ‘goofy’ laugh. It’s a blessing and a curse.”

The show aired on Wednesday (20 September) and is now available to watch via the Channel 4 website.
