If you've missed people getting their bits out on television and Naked Attraction just isn't doing it anymore, you're in luck.

Embarrassing Bodies is returning to screens in a rebooted version.

But the show, which helps diagnose people with medical mysteries, has a new set of doctors taking charge.

Dr Jane Leonard, Dr Anand Patel and Dr Tosin Ajayi-Sotubo will be helping people out when the show returns to E4 later this year.

Dr Jane is an NHS GP and cosmetic doctor, splitting her time between both in clinics in London, Liverpool and Cheshire.

She has a first-class honours degree in anatomical sciences, and focused her studies on the anatomy of the face, head and neck.

Dr Anand has previously worked as a biology teacher and head of Sex Ed before qualifying as a GP.

He currently splits his time working as a GP in South London, and at the Centre for Men's Health at Harley Street, specialising in health, sexual function and testosterone issues.

Dr Tosin is an NHS and private GP, working in both primary and secondary care with a special interest in public and women's health as well as preventative medical care.

The show will see the doctors diagnose people and their issues in pop-up clinics over the country, and destigmatise conditions that often go ignored.

A new addition to the format will be celebrities getting involved through a series of stunts, aiming to get people talking about these topics.

Embarrassing Bodies originally started on Channel 4 in 2007 featuring Dr Christian Jessen, Dr Dawn Harper and Dr Pixie McKenna, and ran until 2015.

Commissioning Editor Clemency Green, previously said of the show's return: "There is no condition too big, too small or embarrassing for our brand-new team of unflinching experts.

"The original run on Channel 4 made waves in helping to empower people to check their bodies and seek medical assistance without shame, so I can't wait to once again be confronted, fascinated, and informed on the many and varied problems that walk into our new clinic."
