I Want To Change My Body

9:00pm Monday 19 November on BBC THREE

Part of BBC Three’s Body Beautiful season, I Want To Change My Body is a bold, original and ambitious documentary which sees young body-obsessed Brits turn the camera on themselves.

Diving beneath the surface of Britain’s body confidence crisis, I Want To Change My Body follows up to 16 young people aged 16 to 25 who are unhappy with their appearance, as they go on a personal quest to transform their bodies with the hope that the changes will make them happier.

With each of the young people using a handheld camera, the diverse characters from across Britain will personally film their own extraordinary journeys over six months. From extreme weight-loss surgery to hair transplant surgery, they will take us with them on the roller-coaster ride of anxiety, emotion, excitement and pressure they experience on their quest for perfection. This is the real story of body-obsessed Britain, told through their eyes.
