Launched in 2003, Queer Eye saw five gay men give a makeover to a straight man. In addition to the physical, prettifying make over that immediately springs to mind, this involves changing their attitudes and outlook's.

Running until 2007, it proved a great success. Amazingly, topping this, is Netflix's newfound iteration of the show - rare for a come-back show and especially for one that appears a little dated.

Scott Bryan, Buzzfeed's TV editor, told BBC News, "I think it's what people really need right now," 

Queer Eye
The original series of queer eye ran from 2003-2007

"There's not much else on TV that's so positive. You do have Bake Off, in a competitive format, but this show is very much about guys helping each other.

"It's unusual to see a man opening up, crying on camera, and other guys helping him go through a difficult situation. It's very supportive and you don't see that often on TV."
