New TV show needs obese Leicestershire people with medical problems

Obese people can get help from the UK’s top doctors by taking part in a new TV series.

Big Body Clinic is looking for people aged 18 and over from across the country to be featured in the show, which is being filmed later this year.

The show is being made by Firecracker Films, the production company behind medical programmes such as Emma Willis Delivering Babies, Dr Christian Will See You Now, The Sex Clinic, and Britain’s Loudest Snorer.

The show will follow people from around the UK with a variety of weight-related medical conditions who will receive treatment from some of the country’s leading bariatric and endocrinology experts, and the production company is hoping people from Leicestershire will come forward to take part.

Described as being “warm and uplifting in the tone”, the series will follow people on their journey as they will receive life-changing procedures, care and support.

A spokeswoman for the company said: “We’ve all heard about the delays in the NHS in getting help and treatment for weight-related issues so this may be a fantastic opportunity for people to receive expert medical support quickly and help conquer the problems thousands of Britons are facing.

“The NHS predict that global obesity will skyrocket in the coming decade, and we all know how people we know have joked about gaining extra weight during the lockdowns.

“Weight is on the public’s mind.”
