Reality TV show wants Leythers

Leythers suffering from weight-related medical problems are being invited to take part in a new series of Channel 4 programme Embarrassing Bodies.

Programme makers Maverick Television want to hear from people who are overweight and feel they have been suffering in silence.

The programme’s panel of doctors will help patients take the first steps to a healthier future.

The borough will be featured after recent NHS figures showed the town’s obesity rate is above the national average.
