The first is a live version of Embarrassing Bodies, and the second, which will also be shown on Channel 4 is Secret Eaters. Here is a quick guide to both shows, detailing what you can expect when tuning in next week.
On Tuesday 15th May we see a brand new series return to our TV screens. Over on Channel 4 at 8:00pm we see the first of an eight part series of Embarrassing Bodies return. The show has been a hit for several years, seeing both men and women of all ages reveal some of the embarrassing health problems to the shows resident doctors Dr Dawn Harper and Christian Jessen.
This new series will be names Embarrassing Bodies: Live from the Clinic, which as the name suggests, will be live. The twist in this show, compared to the conventional version that has been running for several series, will allow you the viewers at home, to make an online appointment to reveal your issues and problems. The medical duo will select a few to deal with life on air direct from the studio.
As well as dealing with live questions from viewers, the new series will also provide viewers with several pieces of health advice and information. For example, the first episode will feature a handy demonstration, showing women how they can examine their own breasts at home for any issues, as well as information on why flatulence occurs and how it can be remedied.
Channel 4 is also welcoming a brand new series next week for viewers interested in health and nutrition. The new six part series is names Secret Eaters and will air over on Channel 4 on Wednesday 16th May at 8:00pm.
The new show will be hosted by experienced presenter Anna Richardson, who during each episode will be watching and following a family with weight problems undergo 24 hour surveillance. With their every move being watched and examined the footage will reveal exactly what is wrong with their eating habits as we get too see exactly when and what they eat and snack on during a 2 hour period. The first episode will see siblings Jill Hamill and Stuart Raphel become the first family to take part in this show. We will see the duos eating habits exposed as cameras are placed not only in their home and cars, but their shopping trolleys and fridges. If the duo thinks they can outsmart the Secret Eaters team they will be shocked, as there will also be two private investigators following their every move.
The aim of the show, is not only to highlight the bad food and drinks that each participating family over indulge in, but to help each family make a great change in their life. Therefore you will also be able to see each participating family undergo advice about their daily diet and exercise regime, in order for them to make a positive change.
