TV doctor faces the axe from second show after sexual misconduct investigation | The Sun
BOSSES at UKTV face a headache as they have just finished filming a series with Dr Tijion Esho – who is now facing sexual misconduct claims.
The programme, The Beauty Rewind Clinic, features the cosmetic medic alongside presenter Vick Hope as they look at non-surgical procedures.
But its screening is in limbo while the allegations are investigated.
Dr Esho has also appeared on ITV’s This Morning and BBC1’s Morning Live.
A TV insider said: “UKTV want to do the responsible thing and won’t consider giving the show an air date until the matter is resolved.
“In the minds of channel chiefs he is innocent until proven guilty, but if Dr Esho is not cleared, the whole series may need to be scrapped.

“And that will cost them a huge amount and it will have been a devastating waste of time.
“Every episode is an hour long and it’s a ten-part series.
“It’s a particularly galling setback for Vick too.”
The Beauty Rewind Clinic was scheduled to air next year on W, one of the channels owned by UKTV, though no firm date had been set.

It follows members of the public who want to undo years of social media-inspired cosmetic procedures in a bid to get back to a more natural look.
Dr Esho, who is described as an industry leader in the field, provides his expertise in the clinic, with Vick by his side offering moral support as the clinic users make the changes.
A complaint against him was made to watchdog the General Medical Council (GMC) and at present he can only see patients while he is accompanied by a chaperone.
Father-of-two Dr Esho, who also features on E4 show Body Fixers, has denied any wrong-doing and investigations are continuing.
GABBY: I CHATTED UP GIGGS
GABBY LOGAN has revealed she could have ended up as Ryan Giggs’s Wag if it wasn’t for her dad’s intervention.
One night nearly 30 years ago when the Match Of The Day host was 20, she started chatting to the former Man U ace in a Cardiff nightclub, egged on by her best pal.
But a bouncer pulled her away from the Welsh winger, under orders from her dad Terry Yorath, then Giggs’s national team manager.
She recalled the bouncer’s words: “Your dad gave me express orders that I had to intervene.
"He said he didn’t want you talking to any footballers.”
Gabby revealed in her new autobiography First Half, out yesterday: “The bouncer was adamant that night was over.”
Gabby went on to marry former Scotland rugby star Kenny Logan in 2001 and the couple have two children.
