“I believe we have all become increasingly curious about our health and well-being since the start of the pandemic, including me personally."

The programme marks a shift for Kate, who last week picked up a National Television Award for her Finding Derek documentary.

She said: "We are going to make another documentary, there are plans for more.

"Derek has a very short window of energy, but we are trying."

The show will explore patients with a range of common health issues, from heart disease to kidney stones, endometriosis and back pain, then allow viewers to see how the condition looks.

Catherine Catton, head of commissioning for popular factual & factual entertainment at the BBC, described the show as “the next generation of health format which will combine warmth, expertise and cutting-edge technology to provide unprecedented insight into common health conditions.”
