The Surjury (w/t) follows a jury of 12 members from the public as they decide if people should go under the knife for the cosmetic surgery of their dreams.

The series will allow candidates to receive measured advice about the cosmetic procedures they desire and give them the freedom to explore their choices with more information.

Introduced by Flack, the candidates will need to gain a majority of the jury vote to secure the procedure they’ve requested.

If the surgery goes ahead, candidates are then invited back to demonstrate the results of their operation.

OK, in the spirit of apologetic full disclosure, this ain’t a normal week for me. It’s August. Piers and Susanna are off (deservedly – thought I’d better slip that in) on their French car factory-style summer sojourn. I’m also sneaking in a bit of R&R and extra-curricular that the normal 100-hour week doesn’t allow.

The death of Steve Dymond following his appearance on The Jeremy Kyle Show last month is a sombre lesson on the power that television has over people’s lives.

The participant on the controversial daytime programme had failed a lie-detector test, having been accused of infidelity by his fiancée. Following his death, the show was initially taken off air and then axed by ITV Chief Executive Carolyn McCall.

Love Island star and social media influencer Laura Crane hosted the ceremony, which was held at the Jill Craigie Cinema, University of Plymouth, in late March. Crane, who is also a champion surfer, talked to the students about her life in the media. “People sometimes forget about us down here, but don’t! There are honestly so many incredible films. It’s mad to think that these people are just starting out,” she said.
