    Over a quarter of adults in the UK are now officially living with obesity, and numbers are on the rise. We’re regularly told that obesity is one of the leading causes of health problems and premature death, and that the impact on the NHS is growing. So what is life like for those whose appearance is increasingly the subject of public scrutiny? In a thought-provoking new series for BBC Two, nine people who live with obesity, or who choose to call themselves fat, move in together to share their experiences and explore what it means to live with obesity in the UK today. For nine days they’ll confront each other with their own truth about being big. What, if anything, should they do about their obesity? Should they love their bodies and embrace their size, or should they strive to get healthy and lose weight?

    The Great British Bake Off: An Extra Slice is the show that gives you an extra bite of Bake Off action.
    As the bunting goes up and the aprons go on, each week host Jo Brand is joined in studio by a panel of celebrity guests to chew over all the latest goings on in the tent and serves up some of the funniest unseen moments from the main show.

    An Extra Slice regular Tom Allen gets amongst the studio audience to take a look at the weird and wonderful bakes they’ve brought along, and serves some up for the panel to taste.

    Taking inspiration from Paul and Prue, Jo will be setting the celebrity guests some fiendish baking related challenges of her own and as ever, celebrating viewer photos of their home bakes, be they tasty triumphs or heroic fails.
    And if that wasn’t enough, Jo and her guests are also joined by the latest baker to leave and get the lowdown on their time in the Bake Off tent.

    When you can’t get enough of the Great British Bake Off, there’s always room for An Extra Slice!

Talking to teenagers and young people, campaigners, psychologists and medical professionals, Dispatches asks: Are we over-reliant on antidepressants? Do people know about the potential long-term implications? Are we offering medical solutions to emotional problems? And whilst praised for opening up the conversation around mental health, have de-stigmatisation campaigns had unintended consequences?
