Georgia Toffolo is making a documentary about her quest for perfect skin after spending years battling acne.

The former 'Made In Chelsea' star has been commissioned by ITV to work on a new film titled 'Georgia Toffolo: In Search of Perfect Skin' for ITV2 which will take a look at the multi-billion-pound industry which provides products to treat spots.

ITV's Commissioning Editor, Factual Entertainment Satmohan Panesar said: "Huge numbers of young people and beyond suffer from acne, which can have a significant impact on their well-being and they rely on treatment they can trust. As someone who has had to deal with this condition, Toff is the perfect guide through the industry that profits from selling products to sufferers and she is determined to find out what is really going on."

In the documentary, Georgia looks into a prescription acne medication called Roaccutane after previously taking a course of the treatment and she is seen debating whether to try it again after suffering another flare-up.

The drug has been linked to serious side-effects such as depression and the 28-year-old TV star investigates whether it is being properly prescribed in the UK and whether users are aware of the potential risks.

She also looks into the science behind claims being made by skincare brands about the effectiveness of their products and even works with a cosmetic chemist to create a fake spot cream which is sent off to a testing company with dramatic results.

'Georgia Toffolo: In Search of Perfect Skin' is due to air on ITV2 on 28 November at 9pm.
