Where the original Embarrassing Bodies doctors are now – from bankruptcy battles to This Morning stardom

HAVE you ever wondered what the Embarrassing Bodies doctors are up to now?

The medical reality television hit our screens in 2007.


The Channel 4 show – which is returning with a new series very soon – saw Brits in need of medical help go to Dr Christian Jessen, Dr Dawn Harper and Dr Pixie McKenna for advice.

Embarrassing Bodies addressed a number of issues including toe fungus, rotting teeth, sweaty feet and anything to do with sexual sexual health.

The programme became a huge fan favourite and managed eight successful series panning over eight years.

The show came to an end in 2015.

One of the reason Embarrassing Bodies was loved so much was because of the three doctors.

But have you ever thought about what they've been up to over the past seven years?

Let's take a look…

Dr Christian Jessen

Christian, 45, was on the show between 2007 and 2015 and worked alongside Pixie and Dawn.

The reality star graduated in medicine at University College London in 2001 and went on to get a MSc in sexual health.

Since Embarrassing Bodies he's starred in a number of other shows including Doctor Christian Will See You Now and Dr Christian: 12 Hours to Cure your Street .

Over the years he's also written a number of books and in 2016 published Dr Christian's Guide to You.

Last year the doctor faced bankruptcy after being ordered to pay Arelene Foster £125,00 in damages.

The TV star appealed to his followers to help him raise money to cover legal costs after he tweeted false allegations that Ms Foster was having an extra-marital affair.
