Caroline Flack Defends Her Controversial New Reality TV Show Amid Public Backlash
We all know Caroline Flack best for being the bearer of good and (mostly) bad news for the Love Island contestants, but she’s about to take on a new, even more controversial role.
The former Xtra Factor host has signed up to present new Channel 4 reality tv show, The Surjury.
The whole concept of the show sees a person stand before a group of others and basically pitch to them what cosmetic surgery procedure they think they need.
The ‘jury’ then decides which person is most in need/deserving of the work – and that person is then granted the surgery they’ve asked for… seriously.
So its no surprise that the whole idea has left the public a bit dumbstruck.
So in the same week that Caroline Flack opens up about her Mental Health struggles, she also announces that she’s hosting a TV programme where people must convince a jury to give them free cosmetic surgery. #moneytalks

So people who have confidence issues have to convince a jury and the public they need surgery? So if the public agrees they need surgery surely that will break the ‘contestant’? This sounds so toxic and vile. Why would @carolineflack1 agree to this?

Jameela Jamil also chimed in on the idea of the new show, tweeting ‘Welp. Black Mirror is officially happening guys. It’s here,”
Caroline however clearly has her own ideas on how the show is being perceived, and was quick to jump to her own defense.
Now, we’ll save our own judgement until the show actually airs – but we really don’t think the world needs another show based on altering the way people look for popularity.
What do you guys think?
