E! has ordered a new documentary series about eating disorders.
The show, What's Eating You?
will tackle common and unusual eating problems, The Hollywood Reporter
Among the participants in the programme is "a woman who eats a roll of toilet paper dipped in pickle juice every night before bed".
Another "lives in seclusion and feels compelled to eat twigs, pencil erasers and superglue", while an aspiring model featured on the programme "is so starved that she physically smells because her body literally is eating itself alive".
E!'s Lisa Berger said: "I know that I speak for everyone at E! when I say how proud we are to welcome this important programme to our network. The prevalence of eating disorders is all too common in a society that can often value looks and appearance above all else."
The series is expected to air in the autumn.
