Gok admits nerves over new show

Gok Wan has admitted he is feeling the pressure after signing up to give live make-overs in his new show.

The How To Look Good Naked star is returning to his style roots after presenting dating show Baggage and cooking show Gok Cooks Chinese, with Gok Live: Stripping For Summer on Channel 4.

The three part series will see the 38-year-old style guru give two live makeovers in an hour, to help two lucky ladies feel fabulous on the beach.

Gok told the TV Times: "It's never been done before. I'm really nervous about it, and want to make sure I do a proper job.

"There's a reason you don't do live fashion. So that's going to be scary in itself, because you can't organise and prep stuff.

"Dressing somebody in three hours is very hard because you want them to feel great in their outfit, but doing it in moments is even harder.

"So it's going to be quite scary, but it's also very exciting for that reason."

And Gok is happy about returning to his style roots.

He said: "It feels like coming home, it's great. I was always going to return to fashion, but I just didn't know when. Now feels like the right time."
