World's Greatest Body Shockers
14 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have seen many documentaries focusing on particular bodily extremes, such as men and women who are extremely fat, transsexuals and transgenders in relationships, and celebrities that have done stuff to themselves, but this programme showed all of them together, and more, and worse. Presented by Tom Allen, this programme was basically an assortment of categories of over the top, weird, bizarre and extremely unthinkable things people can do or have done to their bodies, whether intentional or not. These categories are Yoyo Dieters - celebrities and people who have gone up and down in weight, Bodybuilding - people who overexercised to gain mass muscles, Celebrity Hair Loss - celebrities who have lost hair and try to correct it, Contortion - people who can bend and twist their bodies in impossible positions, Skinnies - celebrities who have slimmed too much, Cellulite - celebrities whose legs have noticeable skin changes on the legs, especially in the thighs, Tattoos - celebrities and people who have unusual art on their bodies, including full body, Acting Extremes - actors who have lost and gained weight for a role in a film to get into the part, e.g. Renée Zellweger in Bridget Jones and Christian Bale in The Machinist, Piercings - people putting metal various parts of the body, including eyelids, uvular, moles, clitoris, cervix, penis and full body, Eyes - things people can do with their optical organs, including popping them out, eyeball jewellery and tattooing, Partied Out Bodies - celebrities who have harmed and damaged their bodies with too much drinking, e.g. Daniella Westbrook losing her septum to cocaine, World's Biggest... - people with the largest particular natural body parts in the world, such as breasts, nose and penis, Fatties - people who have gained massive weight either unintentionally or deliberately, Transgender - people who change sex from female to male (sometimes vice versa), including the Pregnant Man, Thomas Beatie being the first "man" in the world to give birth, and a Transgender Couple, two men used to be women and one gave birth, and finally Body Modification - people splitting their tongues, having all their teeth pulled out, scarification, i.e. designed body scarring, subdermal implants like horns, and unbelievably splitting their penis! With contributions from bodybuilder Irene Anderson, transgender Thomas Beatie, psychotherapist Lucy Beresford, Desiree Burch, Lucie Cave, full body pierced Elaine Davidson, Joel Dommett, Jonah Falcon with the world's biggest penis, Alix Fox, Jess Fox, Lauren Harries, Zoe Howe, Micah Jesse, Dava Krause, Alice Levine, Britain's Got Talent contortionist Iona Luvsandorj, Jodie Marsh who has many tattoos on her arms, morbidly obese Paul Mason, tattoo obsessed couple Curly and Jacqui Moore, weather girl Clare Nasir who has a yo-yo diet, bodybuilder Darren Nicholhurst, morbidly obese Goddess Patty who has does "squashing", Britain's Got Talent's Antonio 'Popeye' Francis who can pop his eyes out, Gail Porter who lost all her hair to alopecia, Jackie Stallone who has become ugly due to too much surgery, Josh Sussman, Show Me the Funny's Ellie Taylor, tattoo and piercing enthusiast Steve Truitt, bodybuilder Gregg Valentino who had the world's biggest arms - one exploded, and the world's most tattooed pensioner Isobel Varley. If you have a sick fancy to see disgusting and unbelievable acts upon the body, including with celebrities, and you have a very strong stomach, then this is probably the programme you won't want to miss. Very good!
