A Very Yorkshire Brothel made its debut on ITV last week – and tonight’s episode will once again give a glimpse in what goes on inside the massage parlour in Attercliffe.

Cameras have returned to the brothel after it first made its debut in a number of Channel 4 documentaries several years ago.

Tonight, viewers will see City Sauna owners, mother and daughter team Kath and Jenni, fly to Germany to see how brothels are run legally and what it would mean for them if they could operate within the realms of the law.

They then take their campaigning for the decriminalisation of brothels to the streets of Sheffield, determined to get the 5,000 signatures they need for an audience with the council.

Last week, viewers nationwide were left stunned as the pair were seen purchasing a sex robot for punters to use.

The episode had viewers laughing – and disgusted in equal measure.

Many took to Twitter with one posting: “Who goes to a brothel at 10am while they are still eating their bacon butties?”

Another seemed unimpressed by the material benefits of girls working at the massage parlour.

One told the cameras: “I've been sex working for two and a half years. I've got everything I want. A purple kettle, purple toaster, purple microwave," which prompted the withering comment ‘living the dream’ from one Twitter user.

The show is on ITV at 11.15pm.
