Your body is naked: Kate Garraway hosts new BBC series

Kate Garraway fans left emotional on the first episode of the host’s new BBC show Your Body Uncovered on Wednesday night.

The new show sees Good Morning Britain host and Dr Guddi Singh meeting with patients with medical conditions on a daily basis in the hope of helping them better understand their illness.

The 54-year-old is using her extensive knowledge of the medical world from caring for her husband Derek Draper after he contracted the coronavirus at the start of the pandemic.

The first episode featured Hilda, who had been suffering from uterine fibroids for years, but most recently had “terrible” symptoms that left her with swollen stomach and three weeks of menstrual bleeding.

Hilda tearfully explains how the condition has affected her life and made her increasingly self-conscious.

The 40-year-old said strangers had congratulated her on her pregnancy with a bloated stomach, but in reality she was in great pain.

The BBC2 program uses augmented reality, computer-generated image overlay technology, to help patients confront their condition in a unique medical consultation.

Hilda was shown pictures of her uterus along with a healthy version, which is a staggering 40% smaller than her womb.

The program revealed that she had 100 fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors that grow in or around her mother’s womb and make up the size of a newborn baby in her womb.

The images stunned consultant gynecologist Stephen Quinn, as he explained that he only sees cases like hers a few times a year at most.

BBC2 viewers were equally shocked by the sight, with many taking to Twitter to sympathize with Hilda’s nightmare condition.

One wrote: “OMG. I can’t believe what poor Hilda had to go through with fibroids that made her uterus 40 times its normal size! 90 fibroids in total. Crying for Hilda, she must be in pain.”

Another tweeted: “I feel so sorry for this poor woman who is suffering through this”

One social media user wrote: “Poor Hilda, can’t believe the size of her fibroids. She must be in a lot of pain.”

Another said: “Oh my God, I am in tears for Hilda. I pray she will be fine. Hopefully she can get surgery and cure and make a full recovery. ”

Kate sits with Hilda and her best friend and becomes emotional when she learns the condition has taken a toll on her life.

Hilda paused as she looked at the terrifying reality, before saying: “The graphic reality of what was in my stomach was shocking. It’s like an inflated balloon. I didn’t expect it to be this big, it was scary.”

She continued: “For me it’s normal, but it’s not normal. My life has adjusted around the condition, but that shouldn’t have happened.”

Dr Guddi said: ‘Hilda had one of the worst cases of uterine fibroids that even her surgeon had ever seen.

“My mouth literally dropped when we were shown what it would look like in an augmented reality image of all her fibroids lined up.”
