Hit dating show Too Hot to Handle will return to our screens next month, Netflix has confirmed.

The reality show premiered in April 2020 and saw ten hopeful singletons enter a luxury retreat with their eyes on a $100,000 prize.

The twist, however, was that there was no kissing or sexual activity allowed.

Too Hot to Handle’s quirky characters and raucous antics made it the perfect bingeworthy series to watch during the first lockdown, and now Netflix have announced that ten more contestants will be competing on Season 2 very soon.

The first four episodes are scheduled to hit the streaming service on June 23rd, followed by the final six episodes a week later on June 30th.

Life has changed dramatically for the Season One contestants, who were catapulted to fame after the show was viewed by 51 million households in its first four weeks of streaming.

Cork native Nicole O’Brien, who was a finalist on the series, was a sales representative before appearing on the show and told Virgin Media's The Elaine Show that it was filmed a year before airing on Netflix.

The 24-year-old explained that she had to go back to her day job before becoming an overnight sensation when Too Hot to Handle finally premiered.

She said: “We filmed two years ago which is mad.

“I can't even explain how my life has changed. When we filmed we had to go back to our day job for a year so I went back to sales.

“And then we just shot to fame straight away. My plan was always to do TV to get a platform to do music, which is now what I'm doing.

“To think a year ago I was just sitting in an office is just mad.”

The Irish beauty, who now lives in London, shared that there were moments on the show that didn’t make the final cut.

“Being there until the end was really, really nice,” Nicole said.

“There were bits and pieces that people didn't see. I actually had a kiss with David, I went on a date with David.

“Then there was also me and Bryce who were also sparking a romance and then that kind of happened more so after filming.

“Obviously him living in LA and me living in London, when corona hit and lockdown hit, it didn't work.

“So, unfortunately we had to call it a day but yeah, I'm now currently single,” she added.
