Hannah Spearritt investigates Breast Implant Illness and asks important questions about Breast Augmentation surgery following her own augmentation surgery she had back in 2013.
Hannah alongside her partner Adam, seek to find answers in this revealing documentary from Twenty Six 03, on a controversial issue that is still debated amongst medical specialists and not officially recognised by the NHS.
They want to meet women who have shared Hannah’s experience and bring about change in how Breast Implant Illness is treated in the United Kingdom.
The documentary will air later this year on ITVBe, as part of a wider series of female-focused factual documentaries.
The four factual specials will uncover topics close to the hearts of ITV’s most-loved female personalities, including actor Jacqueline Jossa, British Olympic Boxer Nicola Adams, singer and actress Hannah Spearritt and Original The Real Housewives of Cheshire star Tanya Bardsley.
Each in turn emotional, poignant and personal, the documentaries will aim to shed light on serious topics women face in today’s society, hoping to find answers and raise awareness in the process.
Each hour-long episode will focus on a different topic, from fertility issues such as IVF, to devastating symptoms following cosmetic surgery, to the everyday reality of living with an ADHD diagnosis.
Amanda Stavri, ITV’s Commissioning Editor of Reality TV said “At ITV we’re committed to depicting real-life stories for our viewers, in an authentic and truthful way- tackling important issues, myth-busting and providing important insight to create and instil change....
"These four equally brilliant documentaries would not have been possible without Jacqueline, Nicola & Ella, Hannah and Tanya’s support and bravery, and so we’d like to pass on our thanks to them for sharing their personal experiences to help raise awareness and bring these real-life issues to light.”
