In Search Of Instagram’s Worst Con Artist | Preview (ITVX)
The inside story of Belle Gibson, a 21-year-old social influencer who claimed that she cured her terminal cancer through wellness and healthy eating...
Her miraculous story brought her fame and money with a successful app, a book deal and countless television appearances, but when journalists investigated, they discovered something shocking: none of her story was true and she never had cancer.
She had misled her millions of followers - and for some there were devastating consequences.
With access to friends and family who speak on the record for the first time, this series discovers the truth about Belle Gibson - was she a manipulative and compulsive liar, or a damaged young woman exploited by big brands for their own ends?
In Search of Instagram’s Worst Con Artist lands Thursday 2nd November on ITVX.
