When I first became famous, I was obsessed with reading what people thought about me and a very influential person in my life told me to stop doing it because not everyone’s going to like you.

"The anorexia is only one chapter in the book but for me it was such a huge part of my life for so long.

"This stage show really does talk about living with anorexia - even when I was on TV and making How To Look Good Naked and helping women with their bodies, I was still struggling very much with my own life." Gok Wan can indeed be found on Instagram – sharing photos and videos under the name @The Real Gok Wan.

He's also an accomplished writer having published several style guides and an autobiography.

How do you do it without looking like you’re in a Carry On film? It’s not about being sexual – it’s about getting someone’s attention and getting your own way in a seductive way. I get to meet lots of different people, my life is different every day and I get to do my job and get public recognition for it every day, as well as criticism. You’ve only got to Google it and you’ll find something. They know not to send me anything bad because they don’t want to upset me but some of it’s funny stuff.
