Studio Lambert, the BAFTA-award winning production company behind shows such as Gogglebox, Undercover Boss and Doctor in the House are making a brand new series with resident GP, Dr Rangan Chatterjee (from BBC One’s Doctor in the House).

Casting producer James Alexander said: “ We are reaching out to families in which one or more family members are living with ongoing health issues; no matter how minor they may seem.

“From weight concerns to bad backs, insomnia to fatigue, stress to over doing it with alcohol, our doctor would work with the family for an extended period of time to support them in making positive changes that could potentially make a huge difference to their health and family life.

“The average GP appointment in the UK is only 8-10 minutes, so our aim is to see what affect our doctor can have on the health of a family with a more personal, tailored and one on one approach during a series of health visits done in the comfort of their very own home.

“We hope that this would prove to be a fun, informative and valuable experience for the participating families that could potentially really change the way they live their lives. We are keen to hear from all different family set ups across the country.”
