Channel Four vicar says her show makes Christianity look sex-obsessed

The vicar starring in a new Channel Four reality show has accused the programme's makers of deliberately making Christians appear obsessed with sex.

The Rev Joanna Jepson, who is chaplain to the London College of Fashion, described the show, Make Me a Christian, as "sensational", "irresponsible" and "contrived" and claimed that she was duped into taking part.
