Gok Wan: Too Fat Too Young

LIVING CHANNEL – Thursdays from 30 September, 9.30pm

Gok Wan, stylist of How to Look Good Naked and self-esteem superhero, has boosted women’s body image and helped them to love the skin they’re in.

His empathy runs deep: as a teenager, Gok weighed 21 stone. He was over-eating, overweight and, at times, far from happy. Gok succeeded in transforming his body, but whilst on the outside he has won his battle against food addiction, inside he is still looking for answers. In Too Fat Too Young, Gok talks to teenagers who have been severely affected by food addiction and explores the frightening extent of Britain’s teenage obesity crisis. He meets the experts, discovers some of the reasons behind the complex issue and finds out how and why the problem is growing so rapidly in the UK.
