Description

As MPs on the Health and Social Care Committee look at whether people’s perceptions of their body image impact their mental and physical health, the Sky News Daily podcast heard from one reality TV star who has given evidence to them.

Charlie King was in The Only Way Is Essex and has spoken publicly about his body dysmorphia. He says problems with plastic surgery took him to the “depths of despair”. He tells Leah Boleto about his concerns over social media addiction and the role of influencers.

Body positivity campaigner Megan Crabbe and mental health campaigner Natasha Devon also join the debate.
