Television channel, 5 Star are looking for people in Northamptonshire with various skin conditions to appear in the second series of 'Skin A&E'.The show follows a team of UK dermatologists as they treat patients with a range of skin conditions. 'Skin A&E' gives viewers a no-filter look at surgeries and treatments and it reflects how living with such skin conditions has affected the quality of life and - often - mental health of their patients.

Assistant producer, Dan Dunn, said: "Our casting team is currently looking for people in Northamptonshire who would like the opportunity to see a consultant dermatologist and potentially receive free treatment for their skin complaint.

"We are looking for people who have, for example, been told that their condition cannot be treated on the NHS, perhaps they are on a long waiting list for treatment or the treatment they have been hoping to receive has been delayed."
