Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies is making a grand return to the screen and producers are looking for new patients to treat for the upcoming series.

The reality show, which ran from 2007 to 2015, involved people revealing their rare medical conditions, which many felt they couldn’t talk about openly, to a team of experts determined to treat them in an attempt to de-stigmatise the sometimes-unique cases.

E4 will be reviving the popular programme, but unfortunately fans won’t see the return of Dr Christian Jessen, Dr Dawn Harper and Dr Pixie McKenna, with a brand-new panel of professionals brought in.

The award-winning series will adhere to the original structure for the most part but producers will also shed light on sexual health issues with the help of some ‘well-known celebrities.’

Speaking about the show’s return, Commissioning Editor Clemency Green, said: ‘There is no condition too big, too small or embarrassing for our brand-new team of unflinching experts.

‘The original run on Channel 4 made waves in helping to empower people to check their bodies and seek medical assistance without shame, so I can’t wait to once again be confronted, fascinated, and informed on the many and varied problems that walk into our new clinic.’

Embarrassing Bodies was a huge hit for Channel 4, seeing it win two Bafta Awards and was also nominated for a National TV Award.

Those who remember the show a little too vividly will know it broke its fair share of boundaries during its eight-year history.

From third nipples to warts appearing in places they shouldn’t, Dr Jessen and the team saw it all.

Despite all of this, fans praised the programme for raising awareness for various conditions, which in turn allowed people to feel empowered instead of ashamed.

‘With “Doctor Google” being the first port of call for many people with embarrassing ailments, I hope this new series will offer some comfort, crucial medical advice and encouragement to seek help where needed,’ Green added.

Embarrassing Bodies will premiere on E4 in 2022.
