PROVOCA­TIVE health se­ries Em­bar­rass­ing Bod­ies is head­ing Down Un­der to give Aussies with ail­ments the once over. Em­bar­rass­ing Bod­ies is an award-win­ning show that tack­les ob­scure med­i­cal con­di­tions, which peo­ple are too em­bar­rassed to talk to their doc­tor about. A lo­cal ver­sion of the Bri­tish med­i­cal se­ries has been com­mis­sioned by Fox­tel and the show’s UK host, Dr Chris­tian Jessen (pic­tured), will also ex­am­ine pa­tients in the Aus­tralian se­ries. It will screen in Aus­tralia on Fox­tel’s Life­Style YOU and the Nine Net­work’s dig­i­tal chan­nel GEM. Fox­tel’s de­ci­sion to com­mis­sion an Aus­tralian pro­duc­tion fol­lows lo­cal ver­sions that have been made in Bel­gium, Hol­land and France. Dr Jessen also ap­pears on Em­bar­rass­ing Ill­nesses and Su­per­size Vs Su­per­skinny. He grad­u­ated from Univer­sity Col­lege Lon­don in 2000 and is trained in gen­eral medicine, in­fec­tious dis­ease, travel medicine and sex­ual health/HIV. ‘‘I’m very much look­ing for­ward to once more pulling on the rub­ber gloves and hav­ing a good delve down un­der,’’ he says. Aussies with un­usual ail­ments can seek out a con­sul­ta­tion with the Em­bar­rass­ing Bod­ies team of doc­tors. Visit Life­style.com.au/em­bar­rass­ingbodies
