Dr Christian Jessen will feature in a new Channel 4 TV show in which viewers will be able to seek live medical advice from the comfort of their own homes.

Instead of waiting in a surgery to see a GP, viewers will be able to use video calling in Live From The Clinic, a prime-time series to be broadcast this summer.

The show will feature Dr Jessen and his Embarrassing Bodies co-star Dr Dawn Harper.

Live From The Clinic - a series of six one-hour live episodes to be broadcast at the end of May - will feature the doctors and guest specialists in a specially-designed studio.

Channel 4 said the programme, which will also test over-the-counter treatments and look at popular procedures such as laser eye surgery, will "showcase" the way patients might be diagnosed in future.

Features commissioning editor Kate Teckman said: "Imagine being able to get an appointment with one of our doctors as the programme is live on air.

"This is a truly innovative public service broadcast commission that will take us into the future of health programming."
