When Cosmetic Surgery Goes Horribly Wrong

Plastic Surgery was once considered taboo, something for only the rich and famous, but with advances in medical technology making the odd nip and tuck more affordable, many people are going under the knife in the pursuit of perfection.

It's bigger and more accessible than ever before. However, as with all surgery, there are risks.

In this 90-minute special, narrated by Jill Halfpenny, we have the first hand accounts of people who went under the knife whose lives were scarred by their experience.

Highlights include a young Liverpudlian, Delsha, whose routine visit to get her eyebrows tattooed resulted in her ending up 'looking like a clown' with four eyebrows.

We have the story of a mother of two, Samantha, who suffered years of back trouble due to her large breasts who, upon undergoing a reduction from a J-Cup to a more comfortable C-cup, ended up in agonising pain and her nipple position far higher than she ever could have conceived.

Expert interviews include TV doctor Tijon Esho, Harley Street celebrity surgeon Dr Aamer Khan, psychiatrist Dr Raj Persaud and celebrities Lizzie Cundy & Danielle Lloyd.

Extreme volcano hunter Chris Horsley climbs deep inside some of the world's most active volcanoes to gather new scientific data from the very heart of their active lava filled cores.

800-million people live in the shadow of the planet's 1,571 active volcanoes, so Chris isn't putting himself in harm's way for the pure thrill of it - by using innovative techniques, he wants to help predict future eruptions.

He'll be installing an "early warning system" for eruptions including gas monitoring systems and surveillance web cameras at their rims to alert scientists and local communities about the ever-changing behaviour of volcanoes.

In its path are the homes of 7,000 residents and the emergency services rush to evacuate.
