For the first time in Through Thick and Thin, Gok reveals all about his life changing period.

In this intimate memoir Gok tells his full story in his own words. Whether he’s recounting the horrors of childhood bullying or riotous anecdotes about his loving family, behind the scenes in the fashion world or TV shows, Gok’s voice jumps off the page with all the honesty, wit, and warmth for which he is known and loved.

It was like having my head permanently trapped in an elevator, or like some kind of hideous military torture. My clothes stank permanently of cheap bacon, my hands were dry and cracked from all the washing-up, my brain had disintegrated and I had synth-style tinnitus. Café Hell made me realise that there was no way on earth I wanted my life to be like this, so after just a few weeks I asked Dad to

The girls were overjoyed but they knew they had a long way to go before they had the same level of success as they’d had before. I was proud to be a part of their comeback. Meanwhile, Channel 4 and Maverick were also working hard re-developing How To Look Good Naked. Although I didn’t yet know it, Sue Murphy had

Its front cover had a raised silhouette of her body shape, and when she opened the book she could take out magnetised cut-outs of the jackets, shirts, dresses and skirts that most suited her shape and put them over it, so that she could ‘feel’ her look. Lots of textured swatches and colours (for the friends that went shopping with her) would also help remind her of what she’d learned, and the journey we’d been on together. The whole experience helped her win back some confidence in

Naked makes us feel less alone and I can’t think of any other programme that does that in quite the same way. I owe so much to Naked, more than just giving me a job, fame and some cash. Naked has given me the strength to face my own body demons. I am confident my own body dysmorphia is kept at bay because of the show’s empowering message. #160; Proper Fish and Chips INGREDIENTS 1 telephone number of Mum and Dad’s chippy 6 cans of Stella Box of letters from your family METHOD Call Mum and
