LAST NIGHT, THE first episode of Angela Scanlon’s new TV show Full Frontal was on the telly.

In it, the presenter explored Ireland’s attitudes to nudity – meeting naturists, going behind the scenes of a nude photo shoot in Stellar magazine, and discussing artist Spencer Tunick’s photographs of hundreds of Dubliners in the nip.
