Embarrassing Bodies: Not For The Faint Farted

3bodies300EMBARRASSING BODIES: Wednesday 3rd February, Channel 4, 9pm ALERT ME

Medical gawp-fest Embarrassing Bodies is back with a waiting room full of wayward willies, extreme flatulance and tubular boobs.

Keith, who is so red-faced about his condition he decided to parade it round on television, has a bent penis “like a horseshoe”.

Despite being armed with the ability to do the dirty round corners, Keith is having no joy in the sack and after a chat with Dr Christian decides to go under the knife.

As usual, viewers are spared none of gore and cameras are let into the operating theatre for the painful-to-watch procedure.

Also showing their bits to a national audience are Elizabeth with her Hobbit-like fungus infected toenails and 23-year-old Jane who has a pair of shoe gazing nipples.

The hidden horrors behind the nation’s gnashers are also revealed with the help of new recruit cosmetic dentist Dr James Russell.

A fresh spin for this series is an upcoming episode focusing on viewers’ photos of their embarrassing rashes, parts and problems which the doctors will diagnose. Pity is due for the poor researcher that has to sort through this inbox of horrors and select the best snaps – surely a contender for the worst job in television?

It’s hard not to wince at some of the unusual ailments presented to Doctors Christian, Pixie and Dawn and this series kicks-off with some leg-crossingly queasy moments.

Long-breasted Jane’s surgeon describes her operation as a “tricky bit of tailoring” as he rips skin from flesh and trouser-coughing Jo is reduced to tears because she “trumps a hell of a lot”.

But that’s what keeps viewers watching between their fingers and even the most squemish among us can’t help but be drawn to the ins and outs of even the most bizarre conditions. And for the patients seeking help, treatment can be truly life-changing.

Hi after watching the program last week . There was a young man in the catering industry that doctor saw, with contact dermititis. the doctor did`nt realy give him an actual cause for his problem.
After having the same problem for many years I finaly found that the problem was caused by the paper towels used by the majority of catering establisments around. As they are very cheap to supply. The chemicals in the towels cause drying of the skin and can lead to the dermititis. There must be hundreds of people out there that could benifit from this information and I would be most greatful if you could use your fantastic program to inform them. All the best stewart Smith.

I have IBS and have had for afew years now. I was wandering where if possible I could get a ‘Toilet Card’ It would be a great help.

Janet C says:

I watched your programme last night and was intrigued to see the part on breast surgery. I am 45 years old and for the past few years have had a dark ink like substance come out of my nipples. I have been under the hospital for this and had tests and mammograms but they have found nothing wrong.
Another problem I have is with my right breast. Compared to my left one the right one looks deformed. When I sit upright my right nipple disappears completely and seems to tuck itself under my boob. Im finding this extremely embarrassing and it has knocked my confidence completely whereby I have not had a relationship of any kind for 5 years now.Do you think there is anything that could be done for me?
Thanking you in advance

i watched your tv show last night and i too have suffered with severe constipation, wind and bloating for over 3 years. it’s very painful, especially up to my period and i can’t cope with the pain sat at work every day. i have to take laxatives every night as thats the only way to empty by bowels.
i went to the doctors few days ago, go to go for blood texts for bowel cancer etc…. i eat healthy and walk everyday to and from work.
its very embarrassing and the stench of my poo is disgusting, acid like and makes me very sore. please help, any suggestions for me is appreciated.
