      GEORGE LAMB: Lee Woollard--

    • 00:33

      MAN: 3, 2, 1!

    • 00:34

      GEORGE LAMB: --is a lager swilling--

    • 00:37

      LEE WOOLLARD: 13 points.

    • 00:39

      GEORGE LAMB: --fast food eating--

    • 00:40

      LEE WOOLLARD: It's [BLEEP] lovely.

    • 00:42

      GEORGE LAMB: --rugby playing PE student from southeast Londonwhose party trick is to drink his own vomit.I'm going to surprise Lee with an offer thatcould change his life.

    • 00:57

      LEE WOOLLARD: It's just not on for meto be proper handing out on my ass.

    • 01:00

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee is going to experience his own livingautopsy where he'll find out if his body is functioningat an age older than he is.Lee will get his own live-in doctorto help him change his party animal ways.But it's not going to be easy.[VOMITING]

    • 01:19

      DAN SCARBOROUGH: We have a winner!I think he had his breakfast.

    • 01:22

      GEORGE LAMB: Will the shock of the autopsy and the bestmedical advice be enough to stop the rot?[MUSIC PLAYING]22-year-old trainee teacher Lee Woollard is a typical student.He eats like a student.

    • 01:41

      LEE WOOLLARD: Not the best of diets.Animal burger with onions, please.

    • 01:45

      ALEX: Lee's diet is awful.

    • 01:46

      LEE WOOLLARD: I like eating a lot of fried foods.Make it good, boys.

    • 01:49

      NICK: He eats a lot of fair takeaways.Microwave crap and pizzas.I hate to think what Lee's diet is doing to his insides.

    • 01:56

      LEE WOOLLARD: I mean, I'd like it to be a lot better.[Lee Woollard] But obviously I'm student,so I can't afford the best foods.

    • 02:06

      GEORGE LAMB: And this hard drinking rugby boycanes it like a student downing 13 pints a night and the rest.

    • 02:16

      LEE WOOLLARD: Student life, for me personally,if I wasn't drinking would be pretty boring.[LOUD SINGING]

    • 02:24

      ALEX: I do think Lee is addicted to the lifestyle that he'sin with the heavy drinking.

    • 02:28

      LEE WOOLLARD: One more.

    • 02:29

      VERA: He drinks too much.[Vera, Lee's Mum] And I worry about the state of his liver.

    • 02:33

      LEE WOOLLARD: One of my favorite drinks is the Snake bite.A Black Sambuca.A Storpedo.Get absolutely wasted playing drinking games justto get us a little bit more drunk.

    • 02:43

      NICK: You're drinking to a point wherethere's kind of no return.

    • 02:46

      TIM: He likes to be the life and soul of the party.[Tim, Lee's Dad] He's a party animal.

    • 02:53

      GEORGE LAMB: For Lee, getting smashed off his facemost nights is starting to take its toll.

    • 02:58

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'd say more often than not,probably half the time I go out drinking I throw up.

    • 03:02

      NICK: He is sick quite often.

    • 03:03

      LEE WOOLLARD: We've got pint glasses.It's fine.We can throw up.

    • 03:06

      TIM: I imagine they get up to some fairly outrageousshenanigans.

    • 03:10

      GEORGE LAMB: And chucking up isn't enoughwhen you're one of the boys.

    • 03:14

      MAN: In the bucket!

    • 03:15

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee is happy to drinkhis own and other people's vomit.[VOMITING]

    • 03:32

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm done.

    • 03:34

      GEORGE LAMB: Not that Lee can always rememberperforming his party piece.

    • 03:38

      VERA: Sometimes he drinks so much he forgets what happened.

    • 03:44

      LEE WOOLLARD: That did not happen.How many times have I gone out and can't remember the nightbefore?Uh, um, quite a lot.

    • 03:51

      TIM: Not remembering the night before.That worries me because I just thinkwhat's that doing to his mind?

    • 03:58

      GEORGE LAMB: But there are other reasonswhy his parents are worried.

    • 04:02

      VERA: He woke up in a bus stop and somebody was punching him.And so he obviously fallen asleep because he was drunkand someone was attacking him.

    • 04:11

      LEE WOOLLARD: The police got calledand I was in pretty bad way, but theytook me to the police station and got me in a caband sent me home.And I think it was more shock than anything,because literally one minute I was blissfully asleepand the next minute I know I was getting kneed in the face.

    • 04:31

      GEORGE LAMB: Not surprisingly, Lee's lifestyleis playing havoc with his studies.

    • 04:37

      TIM: If Lee wants to be a PE teacher,then he should really look after himself physically.

    • 04:42

      LEE WOOLLARD: I think it could be affecting mystudying because I'm not sort of always switchedon in the lessons.And sometimes I miss the lessons because I'mjust so tired I can't be asked to get up.I really need to sort of pull my finger outand do a bit about it.

    • 05:00

      GEORGE LAMB: But this PE student is alsoletting down the only love in his life right now-- rugby.[WHISTLE]

    • 05:10

      LEE WOOLLARD: If I played like a quite hard game,by the end of it I'm nacking.I'm blowing out my ass.It's not good.

    • 05:20

      GEORGE LAMB: So after four years of hammeringthe student lifestyle on the lash,how much does wannabe PE teacher, Lee Woollard,really want to change?This is where our living autopsy theater comes in.Lee will be given the chance to discover

    • 05:41

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: what his unorthodox drinking is doing to his insides.If he agrees, he'll be coming right hereto our autopsy theater.What he doesn't know yet is that I'll be offering him the chanceto have a comprehensive body MOT where everythingfrom his blood to his brain and his liver to his heart

    • 06:01

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: will be scanned, screened, and checked.But will the results be shocking enough to make Lee faceup to the challenge of changing his lifestyle?I've come to Greenwich in southeast Londonto make Lee a proposition.

    • 06:21

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: So we're going to offer him a unique opportunityto see exactly what all this heavy drinking isdoing to his insides.

    • 06:27

      MAN: Go!

    • 06:29

      GEORGE LAMB: All right.Let's do it.If Lee accepts, he'll undergo a series of intimate tests.His entire body will be MRI scanned,his vital organs probed, and his blood analyzed.Will he be up for it, or will I be drop kicked out of here?Lee.How you doing?You all right?

    • 06:50

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: You good?

    • 06:52

      LEE WOOLLARD: I was just out for a few beerswith all my mates and stuff.So when George came in I was a bit surprised.Yeah.

    • 06:58

      GEORGE LAMB: What's the deal with the food?This is regular?Because I've heard your diet is pretty impressive.

    • 07:03

      LEE WOOLLARD: Shocking.Shocking.

    • 07:05

      GEORGE LAMB: You want to change, right?

    • 07:06

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.Hopefully, yeah.I want to get it sorted out because next year and the yearafter where I'm going to be actually out in schoolsand doing stuff with kids and it's not professionaland it's just not on for me to be properhanging out of my ass.Do you know what I mean?I just can't do it.

    • 07:20

      GEORGE LAMB: First stage is you've got to comeand we're going to run a whole heap of tests on you.You'll have MRI scans, and then you'regoing to have to do loads of blood tests and all sorts.

    • 07:28

      LEE WOOLLARD: I genuinely want to go and getall the tests done.I want to find out what's going on inside my bodybecause that's the only way that I'm goingto see how bad everything is.

    • 07:36

      GEORGE LAMB: So Lee signed up.I hope he knows exactly what he's letting himself in for.It's two days later and Lee is in central Londonfor his tests.The results will take seven days to processand will form the basis of Lee's living autopsy.

    • 07:54

      LEE WOOLLARD: Oh, man.I'm scared of needles.So it will probably be the worst part of my day.

    • 07:58

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee has a lung capacity test as well asa cognitive assessment and finally a full body MRI.

    • 08:08

      LEE WOOLLARD: I just want to go home and go to bed.But, no, I'm looking forward to gettingall the results and stuff.

    • 08:23

      GEORGE LAMB: After a week of waitingfor the results of the test, the day of Lee's autopsyhas finally arrived.As usual, Lee is waking up with the mother of all hangovers.

    • 08:35

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm really hungoverand don't want to move.Your head hurts really bad.You're throwing up but there's nothingto throw up because you've already thrown it up.Yes.It's not too pleasant.

    • 08:45

      GEORGE LAMB: Being a party animalgoes down well with the boys, but up until nowthe girls haven't been quite as impressed.

    • 08:52

      LEE WOOLLARD: I do not have a girlfriend at the momentunfortunately.So I'm living the single life.I've got to that stage now where I kind of need a girlfriend.

    • 09:04

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee wants to make a change,but he knows it's not going to be easy.

    • 09:07

      LEE WOOLLARD: I think it will be difficultbecause, obviously, like I say, I enjoy going out,I enjoy drinking.So when you enjoy doing something,it's hard to give it up.And just with the whole diet and sort of sleeping patternsit's whatever is easiest.So I'll need sort of a kick up the ass to get that sorted.The thing that would probably most worry

    • 09:29

      LEE WOOLLARD [continued]: is if I get told that my live is about to pack upsort of five years time.That's kind of a big worry because obviously youread lots of stuff about how there'sloads of trouble because of alcohol and stuff like that.So I'd like to find out what's going on.

    • 09:48

      GEORGE LAMB: This is the living autopsy theater.Lee's in the waiting room and he'sabout to find out just how much damage he's done to his body.

    • 09:58

      LEE WOOLLARD: There's been a little bit of worrysort of building up to today.I actually genuinely want to know what's going onand what the results are.I'm a little bit apprehensive to see if I'm a bit [BLEEP] up.But we'll see.I probably reckon my liver is not doing too well.But I'm not sure how much damage I've done to it

    • 10:18

      LEE WOOLLARD [continued]: and whether it's going to be not reparable.

    • 10:22

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee, good morning.

    • 10:23

      LEE WOOLLARD: Good morning, mate.

    • 10:25

      GEORGE LAMB: You well?

    • 10:25

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.Not too bad.

    • 10:26

      GEORGE LAMB: Really?You were out in the bars last night?

    • 10:29

      LEE WOOLLARD: A little bit.

    • 10:29

      GEORGE LAMB: One last hurrah before the new Lee.

    • 10:31

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.Why not?Why not?

    • 10:33

      GEORGE LAMB: Obviously today you'vecome to find out your results.There may be some stuff today that's not so easy to hear.You ready for that?

    • 10:42

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 10:43

      GEORGE LAMB: So what we're going to dois take you through to the other roomto the living autopsy theater.I'm going to ask the porters to come in now.Do you have any idea what you canexpect from a living autopsy?

    • 10:60

      LEE WOOLLARD: No.Not really.

    • 11:01

      GEORGE LAMB: It's going to be completelydifferent than anything you've ever done before.Normal autopsy.Dead body.It's not going to happen today.We've used all the tests, all thescans, the MRI to come up with a whole set of images.And you'll be able to see your body operating exactlyas it is inside your skin.Comfortable?

    • 11:21

      LEE WOOLLARD: As comfortable as I can be.

    • 11:23

      GEORGE LAMB: Time for your living autopsy.[BEEPING]

    • 11:54

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: Hello, Lee.

    • 11:55

      LEE WOOLLARD: You all right, mate?

    • 11:57

      GEORGE LAMB: How you doing?

    • 11:58

      LEE WOOLLARD: Not too bad.

    • 11:59

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah?I've got some good news for you.

    • 12:00

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah?

    • 12:01

      GEORGE LAMB: You're not going to be alone today.We've got some of your friends and family here.

    • 12:06

      LEE WOOLLARD: Oh, you're joking.

    • 12:07

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah.We do.Look.There we go.

    • 12:09

      LEE WOOLLARD: You're such a dick.

    • 12:12

      GEORGE LAMB: Total surprise?

    • 12:13

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 12:13

      GEORGE LAMB: Who is all here?

    • 12:15

      LEE WOOLLARD: My mate, Alex.My little brother.My dad.My mate, Nick.And my mum/

    • 12:25

      VERA: This whole experience is goingto be really good for Lee.Hopefully it'll help him to change.Now, I've also got some more good news for you.As I'm not a doctor, it's probablymore prudent I don't start rooting aroundinside and trying to figure out what's going on.

    • 12:38

      LEE WOOLLARD: Probably best.

    • 12:39

      GEORGE LAMB: So we've got a proper living autopsy doctor.That's Dr. Andrew Curran, a consultant neurologistwith more than 20 years of experience.He's here to give Lee the results of his tests.

    • 12:55

      ANDREW CURRAN: Lee, good to meet you.Andrew Curran.

    • 12:58

      LEE WOOLLARD: Nice to meet you.

    • 12:58

      ANDREW CURRAN: Nice to meet you.

    • 12:59

      GEORGE LAMB: What we're going to donow is I'm going to get the porters in again.They're going to drop the stretcher back,and then we will begin your living autopsy, all right?

    • 13:06

      LEE WOOLLARD: Awesome.

    • 13:08

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee is about to find outexactly what his excessive lifestyle has done to his body.

    • 13:16

      ANDREW CURRAN: Here is the primary incisionhappening so we can actually have a lookand see what's going on.So now we're retracting or pulling back the skin.See your heart and lungs coming in sight.Here's your liver down here-- this red thing--and your intestine going squige.This is actually modeled on the scanswe've done of your organs.

    • 13:37

      GEORGE LAMB: Andrew's main areas of concernare Lee's heart, liver, and metabolism.We're going to start today with your heart.Under scrutiny is Lee's heart.

    • 13:50

      LEE WOOLLARD: I don't give a shit.

    • 13:53

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee lives on a diet of late night takeaways, fryups, and fast food.But has Lee's low hassle, high fat diet fasttracking him to a heart attack?

    • 14:06

      ANDREW CURRAN: We have done a number of blood testswhich look for risk factors for heart disease.And yours have shown an elevated level, predominantlyfrom your diet.And your heart is in an unprotected state.And you have things in your bloodthat substantially increase the risk of you having early heartattacks.

    • 14:28

      LEE WOOLLARD: Like what things in my diet?

    • 14:30

      GEORGE LAMB: Very high in salt content, right?

    • 14:32

      ANDREW CURRAN: High salt, high fat, high carbohydrate.All the wrong balances.So what your predisposing your whole blood systemto is early hardening of the arteries.The issue is at the moment, all of your choicesare actually unhealthy choices.

    • 14:51

      GEORGE LAMB: All right.Well, listen, we're going to do nowis we're going to find out the biological age of eachof your organs as we go through today.And then ultimately we will find outyour overall biological age.The biological age is the age at whichall your organs are operating.The chances are they're going to bea little different to the birth age of your organsbecause of the pressure they've been put under becauseof your lifestyle, all right?

    • 15:12


    • 15:13

      GEORGE LAMB: We're going to have a look now at the screen.You can see the birth age.Birth age is 22.And a fit, healthy, young person you'dexpect the biological age of the organsto be similar or in fact younger.

    • 15:23

      ANDREW CURRAN: You'd hope they'd be younger.Yeah.

    • 15:25

      GEORGE LAMB: OK.And we can see now that the biological age of Lee's heartis 22, 23, 24, 25, 26,[BEEPING] 27,[INAUDIBLE]

    • 15:47

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: Wow.Five years older biologically than you should be.

    • 15:51

      LEE WOOLLARD: I generally didn't think about the whole dietthing.I knew it wasn't healthy.But I didn't think it was going to add five years to my heart.

    • 15:58

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah.OK.

    • 15:60

      ANDREW CURRAN: And it is this sense of cumulative damage.So if you don't change what you're doing, than the damageaccumulates and gets more and more and more.

    • 16:07

      TIM: There were suggestions that you could get worsewithout knowing it.And I think that shocked him a bit.

    • 16:13

      GEORGE LAMB: Now, Lee, you weren't most concernedabout your heart, were you?

    • 16:16


    • 16:17

      GEORGE LAMB: Liver.Next is Lee's liver.Lee is the driving force behind his rugby club's drinkingculture.He regularly drinks up to 13 pints in one session.It's not just beer.There's turbo shandies, snake bites, alcopops, and shots.

    • 16:39

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: On average, Lee drinks more than 80 units a week.That's over 4 times the recommended government limit.No wonder it's the organ Lee is most concerned about.

    • 16:51

      ANDREW CURRAN: Liver was the big worry.

    • 16:52

      LEE WOOLLARD: That was the big one, yeah.

    • 16:53

      ANDREW CURRAN: What happens with liversthat are getting alcoholic damageis that they start to get areas of what is calledfatty degeneration inside them.There is a suggestion that there isstarting to be early fatty change in your liverand you're only 22.

    • 17:08

      GEORGE LAMB: Is that reversible?

    • 17:10

      ANDREW CURRAN: Yeah.I Fatty degeneration is completely reversible.

    • 17:14

      GEORGE LAMB: OK, now, Lee, similarlyto what we did with the heart, we'regoing to try and figure out your biological age of your liverand see exactly what damage you've done to itand see if it's aged prematurely.OK?

    • 17:23

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm guessing it's a yes.

    • 17:24

      GEORGE LAMB: There is a fair chance it will be, yes.

    • 17:26

      LEE WOOLLARD: There's a fair chanceit will be older than 27.

    • 17:28

      GEORGE LAMB: Biologically we're starting outat 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27.[BEEPING]27 also.Yeah.

    • 17:49

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: Lee, both your heart and your liverare five years older than they should be.That got to be a concern.

    • 17:55

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yes.

    • 17:55

      GEORGE LAMB: Because I know rugbyis a huge part of your life.

    • 17:57

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.Yeah.Slight worry.

    • 18:00

      TIM: Well, it was shocking when it was 27.I mean, at that time of his life that'sa big increase, isn't it.

    • 18:08

      GEORGE LAMB: And it's all down to luck.Some people are genetically less likely to suffer severe liverdamage from heavy drinking.But while Lee's liver is currentlydoing a fair job of dealing with the amount of alcoholhe drinks, if he continues binge drinking for the next 10to 15 years, his liver could havedeveloped signs of cirrhosis.

    • 18:29

      ANDREW CURRAN: Cirrhosis just means scarring.Once that's scarring gets past a certain stage,it becomes not only irreversible but progressive.So even if you stop drinking the scarring continues.And that's end stage cirrhosis.You can actually lose 80% of your liverand all the tasks will still look normal.

    • 18:49

      LEE WOOLLARD: Really?

    • 18:50

      ANDREW CURRAN: Yes.Because it has what we call a compensatory reserve,all your organs have the ability to do more work than weactually get them to do.

    • 18:57

      GEORGE LAMB: What is the survivalrate for extreme cirrhosis?

    • 19:01

      ANDREW CURRAN: 70% percent of peoplewill die within five years after the cirrhosis hasbeen diagnosed.

    • 19:07

      LEE WOOLLARD: That's really high.Quite a lot then.

    • 19:10

      ANDREW CURRAN: Yes.Yes.It's a very serious condition.

    • 19:14

      LEE WOOLLARD: Because I'm quite active and stuff like that,does that mean it--

    • 19:17


    • 19:18

      LEE WOOLLARD: That has nothing to do with my liver.

    • 19:20

      ANDREW CURRAN: No, no, no.If you keep downing alcohol at your liverbefore it has a chance to recover from the last dose,then, no, you're just damaging your liver.

    • 19:27

      LEE WOOLLARD: Certain bits I was expecting to be bad.Like, I'm not an idiot.I was expecting my liver to be bad.

    • 19:35

      GEORGE LAMB: His liver has escaped any major damageso far.But there's one regular part of a night out for Leethat Andrew is particularly concerned about,his party piece-- drinking other people's vomit.One of the things that Lee does ishe drinks other people's vomit.

    • 19:52

      VERA: Oh.

    • 19:53

      TIM: Other people's.Boy, that's disgusting.

    • 19:57

      LEE WOOLLARD: A party trick.

    • 19:58

      ANDREW CURRAN: It's hard to start with a list of what--

    • 20:01

      LEE WOOLLARD: What is wrong with that.

    • 20:02

      ANDREW CURRAN: --what is wrong with that.There's no studies on this.I mean, who on earth would do a study on peopledrinking other people's vomits.I mean, it's so far out there you wouldn't eventhink of doing it.Other people's vomit contains substantial amountsof their bodies secretions, so substantially increasingyour risk of conditions like hepatitis, even AIDS.

    • 20:22

      GEORGE LAMB: Are you going to be thinking twice about drinkingother people's vomit?

    • 20:26

      LEE WOOLLARD: Probably more than twice.

    • 20:28

      TIM: He wants to be the life and soul of the party.But he won't be for much longer, will he?

    • 20:36

      GEORGE LAMB: Finally, Andrew has results on Lee's metabolism.Or, in other words, how efficiently Lee's bodyconverts his diet into fuel to keep him healthy.What Andrew has discovered could havea serious impact on Lee's long term mental health.As a result of Lee's poor diet, his blood testshave shown very high levels of a harmful chemical called

    • 20:59

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: homocysteine, a byproduct of eating too much low qualityred meat and hardly any fresh fruit and veg.

    • 21:06

      ANDREW CURRAN: Your homocysteine level unfortunatelyis extremely high.

    • 21:10

      LEE WOOLLARD: What does that mean?

    • 21:11

      ANDREW CURRAN: Upper range of normal is 10.

    • 21:14


    • 21:14

      ANDREW CURRAN: The first stage whereyou start to worry about it in termsof a predictor for further disease is 15.And yours is 17.9 and you're only 22.

    • 21:25

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 21:26

      GEORGE LAMB: If Lee doesn't fancy a healthy eatinglifestyle, it could be madness.

    • 21:30

      ANDREW CURRAN: If it persists at that level,there's now good evidence that suggests that it increasesyour risk-- talking about your brain-- of strokeand also dementia.With the level of homocysteine you have at the moment,your risk of Alzheimer's disease is doubled if it doesn't lower.

    • 21:53

      GEORGE LAMB: All right.Well, from this we've been able to find out a metabolic age.

    • 21:57

      ANDREW CURRAN: We have.

    • 21:58

      GEORGE LAMB: So we're going to have a look at this now.He's 22-years-old.His metabolism, however, I'd imagineis going to be a little greater than thatin light of his homocysteine levels, right?

    • 22:07


    • 22:07

      GEORGE LAMB: Let's have a look at it going now.This is 22 starting out.23, 24, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31.[LAUGHS]37, 38, 39.

    • 22:26

      LEE WOOLLARD: Shut up.Basically I'm going to be screwed.

    • 22:30

      GEORGE LAMB: 61, 62, 63, 65, 66.[BEEPING]70.

    • 22:41

      LEE WOOLLARD: 70.70 years old.I wasn't laughing because it's funny.I guess I was laughing not in disbelief,like because it was a shock.Maybe a nervous laugh.I think that's probably what it was.

    • 23:02

      ANDREW CURRAN: For Lee at your ageit's predominantly common in diet.

    • 23:05

      GEORGE LAMB: Is this the biggest shock of the day you've had?

    • 23:08

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.That's like added 50 years on me.

    • 23:12

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah.

    • 23:13

      VERA: I think he was shocked by his face.Looking at his face, yeah, he was shocked.I don't think he realized what damage he's doing to his body.

    • 23:21

      ANDREW CURRAN: Actually on the surface I'd look at youand say, hey, cool, this kid looks healthy and well.Actually, under the surface, your bodyis already starting to show evidence that you're reallyabusing it very badly.

    • 23:34

      NICK: Coming up at 70 was just unbelievable.Over three times his age.Older than my grandparents.That's really, really strange.

    • 23:45

      GEORGE LAMB: I think we can pretty much conclude the livingautopsy now.

    • 23:48

      ANDREW CURRAN: Yes.That's it.

    • 23:50

      GEORGE LAMB: So here we are zipping you up.I'm sure you're quite happy that your innards are not flappingabout in the breeze anymore.

    • 23:60

      LEE WOOLLARD: It's always good to see what'sgoing on inside and then the doctorshere telling me that if I don't sort it outthat I'm screwed basically.

    • 24:10

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee's just 22-years-old,but how has his excessive partying biologicallyaged his whole body?

    • 24:18

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm a bit worried about the overall age they'regoing to give me with all the things added upand averaged out.Gut reaction, my overall age I'm hoping he'sgoing to say late 20s.

    • 24:34

      GEORGE LAMB: So here we are.The moment of truth.What a day, huh?

    • 24:39

      LEE WOOLLARD: A few shocking things.

    • 24:41

      GEORGE LAMB: OK, guys, so what we're going tois take a look at Lee's overall biological age.You got any idea what it's going to come outwith the overall biological age?

    • 24:50

      LEE WOOLLARD: Probably not good.

    • 24:51

      GEORGE LAMB: OK.Well, if we take a look now it's at 22,which is Lee's birth age.And we'll watch as it goes up 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27,28, gone past both the heart and liver.31, 32, 33.

    • 25:11

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: [BEEPING]

    • 25:15

      LEE WOOLLARD: 33.

    • 25:16

      GEORGE LAMB: That's your overall biological age.How does that make you feel, dad,when you see your boy 10 years older biologically than--

    • 25:23

      TIM: Well, it's a bit worrying, isn't it?

    • 25:25

      GEORGE LAMB: The really good newsthat we've had all the way throughis that you've caught all of this fairly early.You seem like you are committed.The family and friends seem like they're behind you.And if you make the changes, all of thisis reversible as it stands.

    • 25:40

      ANDREW CURRAN: Absolutely.And it's that sense of saying, well, OK, Imade some wrong choices, now let's make the right choicesand this will all sort itself out.

    • 25:49

      GEORGE LAMB: All right.So the next time we see you back here in this very roomare we going to have this biological age down?

    • 25:55

      LEE WOOLLARD: For sure.

    • 25:56

      GEORGE LAMB: For sure.

    • 25:56

      ANDREW CURRAN: All right.

    • 25:57

      GEORGE LAMB: That's it.We got a guarantee.Well, listen, well done for today.

    • 26:01

      LEE WOOLLARD: I think it is goingto make me sort of [INAUDIBLE].I'm not saying it's going to be easy.

    • 26:06

      VERA: Hopefully he'll start thinkingabout what he's eating and drinkingand do take steps to do something about it.

    • 26:13

      TIM: It's quite shocking.And it's obviously got repercussions for everyone.

    • 26:20

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee is shell shockedby the results of his autopsy.But it's not too late for him to do something about it,and he won't be alone.We're going to pair Lee with one of our specially selected teamof young medics.For this challenge it's going to be Dr. JamesLambert, a marathon running medic whowas also a keen rugby player as a student.

    • 26:45

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: He's just the man to help wannabe PE teacher, Lee, getoff the starting blocks.James is in the neighborhood.All Lee needs now is a doctor's appointmentbut with a difference.It's going to be in his local pub.

    • 27:06

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: [PHONE BEEPS]

    • 27:07

      LEE WOOLLARD: Who is James?"Hi, Lee.Can you meet me at the Jolly Fairmont Pub?16 [INAUDIBLE] Road.Looking forward to meeting you.James."

    • 27:16

      GEORGE LAMB: If Lee is confused, howwill Lee react when he finds out the medic isgoing to be his new flat mate?

    • 27:26

      JAMES LAMBERT: Hi.Is it Lee?

    • 27:27

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 27:28

      JAMES LAMBERT: Nice to meet you, Lee.I'm James.Yeah.Yeah.Yeah.

    • 27:30

      LEE WOOLLARD: Nice to meet you.

    • 27:31

      JAMES LAMBERT: Believe it or not, I'm a doctor.

    • 27:32

      LEE WOOLLARD: Really?

    • 27:32

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.

    • 27:33

      LEE WOOLLARD: Not just some random bloke justtexting me then?

    • 27:35

      JAMES LAMBERT: No, no, no, no.I'm a doctor and I'm going to be helping you outfor the next few days.I know you've had a living autopsy.Just kind of gone over a biological age of 33.Does that surprise you?

    • 27:46

      LEE WOOLLARD: I actually thought it was all down to my drinkingand that was it.But after sort of speaking with a doctorand finding out the results, it'ssort of a combination of my diet and the drinking, as well.But I didn't think my diet played that big a role in it.I mean, I'd love to see the metabolic agethingy come right down.

    • 28:03

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.Sure.

    • 28:03

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'd like to get a lot fitter.

    • 28:04

      JAMES LAMBERT: I'm going to be hereto help you do those things.Advise on your lifestyle, your drinking and everythinglike that.And if it's OK, I'm going to move in with you for a few daysto help you do that.

    • 28:13

      LEE WOOLLARD: We got a couple of sofas in there.

    • 28:14

      JAMES LAMBERT: You got a spare sofa?Would it be all right if I kept on one for a few days?

    • 28:17

      LEE WOOLLARD: Uh, yeah.Should be fine.That should be fine.

    • 28:20

      GEORGE LAMB: So Lee has got his own personal, fully qualifiedmedic for three days of intensive treatment.The autopsy has had a big effect on Lee,but it's going to be a massive challenge for Jamesto help this hard drinking student change his habits.Time to show James his luxury sleeping quarters.

    • 28:38

      LEE WOOLLARD: I suggest the larger one.

    • 28:40

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.

    • 28:40

      LEE WOOLLARD: But you can have that small one if you want.

    • 28:42

      JAMES LAMBERT: OK.Down there.

    • 28:44

      LEE WOOLLARD: Feels a bit weird to have a doctor in my houseactually.He's going to be looking at everything I do.Considering I haven't lived at home for about five years.

    • 28:50

      GEORGE LAMB: Dr. James would normallyobserve Lee for a die to get to know his habits,but as a former student himself, Jamesknows what he's up against and wastes no timegetting started on Lee's bad diet.Firstly, he'll be clearing out his cupboards.

    • 29:04

      JAMES LAMBERT: So I've got a bin bag here.You've got some tomato sauces.They're quite high in salt because they're processed.So the rest of the cupboard is pretty bare.

    • 29:11

      LEE WOOLLARD: I don't think I've got anything in the fridge.

    • 29:13

      JAMES LAMBERT: Let's have a look, shall we?Mayo.The squiggy mayo.Horrifically high in fat.Right.So you got some chips.Put them in the bag.So one scoop of that ice cream provides10% of your sugar for the day.So let's chuck that in.

    • 29:28

      LEE WOOLLARD: The only thing that I've got left is bread.

    • 29:30

      JAMES LAMBERT: White bread.We're going to go for whole mill.

    • 29:33

      GEORGE LAMB: So how much healthy food does Lee have left?

    • 29:36

      JAMES LAMBERT: Looking at the food,you've got nothing basically.You probably haven't even got whatyou should be consuming in a day, whichis 2,500 calories just to keep you going.I think what you need to do is go outside and chuckthat stuff in the bin and get rid of it onceand for all so it's a clean sweep.We've got nothing left that's badand we can have a fresh start tomorrow.

    • 29:54

      LEE WOOLLARD: Let the bad stuff go.

    • 29:56


    • 29:58

      GEORGE LAMB: Now that Lee's kitchenhas been cleaned out, James wants to meet up with Lee'sbest rugby pals, Alex and Nick.

    • 30:08

      JAMES LAMBERT: What's Lee like on kind of a normal night out?

    • 30:10

      ALEX: He's a good laugh.He makes you smile.If you're in a bad mood, he'll cheer you up.That's one thing he's guaranteed to do.

    • 30:15

      JAMES LAMBERT: Why is that then?Is that kind of--

    • 30:19

      ALEX: Look at him.

    • 30:20

      JAMES LAMBERT: On a normal evening out,do you go home or do you end up crashing somewhere else?

    • 30:23

      NICK: I usually see him much more [INAUDIBLE]mornings at my house.

    • 30:26

      JAMES LAMBERT: Good sight?Bad sight?

    • 30:27

      NICK: Bad.Very, very bad.Especially when he's not really working out where he isand the night before he gets naked and he just lays there.No covers.Front room.

    • 30:34

      JAMES LAMBERT: Lovely.

    • 30:36

      GEORGE LAMB: To save anymore embarrassment,the doctor decides to have a one on one chat with Nick.

    • 30:42

      JAMES LAMBERT: So do you think Lee's lifestyle isslightly excessive.

    • 30:45

      NICK: In regards to alcohol and diet, yeah.Definitely.He does definitely want to change.I think it's going to be tough for himbecause of the whole uni lifestyleand not being at home very much.It's going to depend on convenienceand that sort of thing.A lot of stuff that he does depends on convenience.

    • 31:01

      GEORGE LAMB: And Alex thinks he knows one good reasonbehind Lee's heavy drinking.

    • 31:04

      JAMES LAMBERT: You think he needs a bit of Dutch courageto go and meet the ladies?

    • 31:08

      ALEX: Definitely.He needs a lot of Dutch courage.He doesn't have the balls to go up to a girl and talk to her.So he needs to able to shine, and Ithink that the alcohol gives him a bit of a boost.

    • 31:20

      GEORGE LAMB: Having gotten the low down, it's time for Leeand his new drinking buddy, James, to head home.

    • 31:25

      JAMES LAMBERT: I think I've got a really good pictureabout what's going on and I thinkI've got some ideas about what we can do tomorrow.

    • 31:32

      LEE WOOLLARD: I am tired.

    • 31:32

      JAMES LAMBERT: OK.Well, nice meeting you.

    • 31:34

      LEE WOOLLARD: See you tomorrow, mate.

    • 31:35

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.I look forward to tomorrow.OK.

    • 31:42

      GEORGE LAMB: 8:00AM on day two of the live-in.While Lee is still asleep, James has already been shopping.[KNOCK][GROAN]

    • 31:51

      JAMES LAMBERT: All right, Lee.I'll meet you in the kitchen in five minutes, all right?I'm going to try and get him to have some breakfast, whichhe doesn't normally have.I think he said to me yesterday hehasn't had breakfast for six years.Probably since he left home.So I think it's going to be a noble experience for him.

    • 32:03

      GEORGE LAMB: From no breakfast to a choice of threehealthy options before lectures.

    • 32:08

      JAMES LAMBERT: This is the hangover breakfast.

    • 32:10


    • 32:11

      JAMES LAMBERT: I'm not advising that you have a hangover,but if you do we've got some water here.We've got some bread and some bagels.And they're really good.They'll give you some good complex carbohydrates.That'll set you up for the day.We've got some jam and we've got some honey.That will make you feel a little bit better.It will reduce glucose levels in your blood.That's why you feel shaky with a hangover.Then we've got some milk here.I know that you're often sick after you've been drinking.

    • 32:33

      JAMES LAMBERT [continued]: So milk is a really good thing justto settle your stomach down.

    • 32:35

      GEORGE LAMB: Option two-- the sport breakfast.

    • 32:38

      JAMES LAMBERT: We've got some porridge eights here.Bananas, which are also complex carbohydrates.Apples.They've got vitamins in there.So it's pretty cheap.That's that breakfast.

    • 32:46

      GEORGE LAMB: Finally, the brain booster.

    • 32:48

      JAMES LAMBERT: You've got tomatoes here.They're full of antioxidants.They stop your cells being damaged.So eggs are good.They're full of B vitamins.It's important with your body and important with your brain.They've also got lots of protein in them.So those are the three breakfasts you can have.

    • 32:59

      LEE WOOLLARD: Right.Well, I could boil up some eggs.And I could have soldiers.

    • 33:05

      JAMES LAMBERT: Wholemeal soldiers.

    • 33:06

      LEE WOOLLARD: Wholemeal soldiers.

    • 33:07

      GEORGE LAMB: PE student, Lee, has gone for the brain booster.After Lee's first healthy breakfastsince leaving home several years ago,he's off to lectures with hi mate, Nick.Lee spends an average of four hours a day at university.And whilst he's gone, James is planning a surprise.

    • 33:28

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: James wants to see if Lee knows what the government recommendedlimit is for booze.So he's poured out the amount of units Lee drinks in a month.[LAUGHTER]

    • 33:39

      JAMES LAMBERT: Right.You haven't just walked into one of your best dreams ever.[LAUGHS]OK.This is how much booze you knock back on average in a month.

    • 33:50

      LEE WOOLLARD: OK.Is it actual alcohol?Have you poured it out?

    • 33:53

      JAMES LAMBERT: Of course I have.

    • 33:55

      LEE WOOLLARD: You spent a lot of time doing this?

    • 33:56

      JAMES LAMBERT: OK.Have you any idea how much is there?

    • 33:58


    • 33:59

      JAMES LAMBERT: OK.There's 134 pints.

    • 34:01

      LEE WOOLLARD: Shut up.

    • 34:03

      JAMES LAMBERT: And that's how muchyou drink on an average month.So we've got a little game for you to play today.What I want you to do is leave on the deckhow much you think you should be drinking in a month.And I want you to pour into the tankthere how much is unhealthy for you, ie, the amount of excess.

    • 34:24

      LEE WOOLLARD: It's a lot of beer, isn't it?

    • 34:26


    • 34:27

      LEE WOOLLARD: Get a couple of rugby boys around to drink it.[INAUDIBLE] most of it is gone.I'm so bad.All right.One more line.I'll get rid of one more line.There we go.Done.

    • 34:44

      JAMES LAMBERT: So you've got 40 left there.

    • 34:46

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 34:46

      JAMES LAMBERT: And that's what youreckon is your safe recommended limit in a month.

    • 34:50

      LEE WOOLLARD: That doctors won't tell me off about.Yeah.

    • 34:52

      JAMES LAMBERT: Well, it's actually a bit less than that.

    • 34:55

      LEE WOOLLARD: You're joking.

    • 34:55

      JAMES LAMBERT: It is.Yeah.It's 34 pints.So what we need to do is chuck away a little bit more.

    • 35:02

      LEE WOOLLARD: So that's what [INAUDIBLE].

    • 35:04

      JAMES LAMBERT: That's-- Yeah.So that's the excess.

    • 35:07

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'll say.I drink shitloads, don't I?

    • 35:10

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.So you're drinking for four people.You're smiling, Lee.

    • 35:14

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.I'm not smiling because it's amusing.It's just-- I don't know.Disbelief.

    • 35:19

      JAMES LAMBERT: I reckon together wecan reduce how much you drink each month.

    • 35:21

      LEE WOOLLARD: Done.It's a deal.

    • 35:23

      JAMES LAMBERT: Awesome.All right.

    • 35:24

      LEE WOOLLARD: Nice one.To actually see it sort of laid out hereand see how many pints I'm over the recommended sort of monthlywhat you're meant to have is good for meto sort of see that and see what I've got to cut down to,because it obviously kind of hits homehow difficult it's going to be.But obviously it's what I need to do.

    • 35:44

      GEORGE LAMB: James and Lee are off to the pubfor an early evening drink.Lee wants a steady girlfriend, but hefinds it difficult to talk to women when he's sober.So James has a plan.Just go for it.

    • 35:57

      JAMES LAMBERT: What do you normally do on a night out?

    • 35:59

      LEE WOOLLARD: Just have a few beers.I'll wait until a bit later on in the night,probably because they're a little bit more drunk, as well.So I'm less inclined to be a bit shy.

    • 36:07

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.You ever done it without having a drink?

    • 36:09


    • 36:10

      JAMES LAMBERT: Do you reckon you could do it?

    • 36:11


    • 36:11

      JAMES LAMBERT: You sure?

    • 36:13

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 36:13

      JAMES LAMBERT: What about just going and chatting to someone?

    • 36:15

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.I supposed I could go and chat someone.

    • 36:17

      JAMES LAMBERT: There's lots of people around here,aren't there?

    • 36:18

      LEE WOOLLARD: I knew it.

    • 36:20

      JAMES LAMBERT: You reckon you could go and chat?

    • 36:21

      LEE WOOLLARD: If it will get you off my back.

    • 36:23

      JAMES LAMBERT: If you do it, I'll go around and do it.

    • 36:26

      LEE WOOLLARD: Hello.Do you mind if I sit down?

    • 36:29

      WOMAN: That's fine.

    • 36:30

      LEE WOOLLARD: What are you reading?

    • 36:31

      WOMAN: Do you really want to know?

    • 36:33

      LEE WOOLLARD: "Love, Sex, and Tragedy."

    • 36:35

      GEORGE LAMB: Read it and weep, Lee.

    • 36:37

      LEE WOOLLARD: Is it a good book?Hello, my name is Lee.

    • 36:38

      ROSIE: Hi.I'm Rosie.

    • 36:39

      LEE WOOLLARD: Rosie.Nice to meet you, Rosie.So you here on your own?So what brings you to Greenwich then?

    • 36:44

      ROSIE: I live here.

    • 36:45

      LEE WOOLLARD: You live here?And what do you do?

    • 36:48

      WOMAN: I study, well, classics at Cambridge.

    • 36:50


    • 36:51

      WOMAN: Yeah.Hence the book.

    • 36:53

      LEE WOOLLARD: Are you working, college?

    • 36:55

      ROSIE: I'm doing an all foundation year.

    • 36:56

      LEE WOOLLARD: You going to be going out tonight?

    • 36:58

      WOMAN: Yeah, I might with my friends.

    • 36:60

      GEORGE LAMB: Oof.

    • 37:03

      LEE WOOLLARD: Well, very nice to meet you.

    • 37:05

      JAMES LAMBERT: What do you think about him?

    • 37:06

      WOMAN: He's a really genuine sort of guy.He's really lovely, actually.He's confident but he's not arrogant.

    • 37:14

      JAMES LAMBERT: If Lee asked you out on a date,what would you say?

    • 37:18

      ROSIE: Um, potentially yes.Maybe.

    • 37:23

      LEE WOOLLARD: I felt a bit like a lemon.It didn't feel too good.But I also got talking to them and it felt all right.By the last girl I chatted to I was like, all right.I had a bit more confidence.Today has been OK.The thing we did with the beers was pretty cool.Just to see how much extra I actually drink.

    • 37:45

      LEE WOOLLARD [continued]: That was kind of not cool as in, oh,that's cool that I drink that much.But not for me personally.It sort of made me see just how much over whatI'm meant to be drinking and I am drinking.Hopefully I'll have taken on board everythingthat he's said.And I really hope that I don't justgo back to the way things are.I really hope that.But now we'll see what tomorrow brings.

    • 38:13

      GEORGE LAMB: It's the third and final daywith Dr. James for Lee.And there's still no sign of a lion.[KNOCK]

    • 38:20

      JAMES LAMBERT: Only me.How you feeling?

    • 38:23

      LEE WOOLLARD: Oh, not too bad.A bit tired.

    • 38:25

      JAMES LAMBERT: OK.If you're not too tired I've got a bit of a surprise for youtoday.

    • 38:28

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah?

    • 38:29

      JAMES LAMBERT: And we've got to make a move quite quickly.What I want you to do first is grab some sports stuffand come with me.

    • 38:36

      GEORGE LAMB: Trainee PE teacher, Lee, is a keen rugby player.But his lifestyle is having an impact on his fitness levels.So James has brought Lee to top rugby union club, Saracens.He's arranged for Lee to spend the morning trainingwith the professionals.If Lee is going to achieve his dream of becoming a PE teacher,

    • 38:58

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: he needs to know it's important to set a good example.So James wants to motivate Lee by showing himhow elite sportsmen keep themselves in peak condition.

    • 39:08

      JAMES LAMBERT: Lee wants to be a PE teacherand he wants to also play rugby at a slightly higher level.So I think it was great to bring him here todayjust to see what it's like to kind of up your fitness levelsand train with a professional rugby squad.OK, boys.Let's go, eh.[WHISTLE]OK.Wee man.

    • 39:28

      JAMES LAMBERT [continued]: Let's go.420, bud.Good lad.

    • 39:32

      JAMES LAMBERT: How do you do think he's going on?

    • 39:35

      DAN SCARBOROUGH: I think he's doing good.He's very enthusiastic.

    • 39:37

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.

    • 39:38

      GEORGE LAMB: 20 minutes into the sessionand Lee's lack of fitness is taking its toll.[VOMITING]

    • 39:45

      MAN: We have a winner!

    • 39:48

      DAN SCARBOROUGH: I think he had his breakfast.

    • 39:50

      GEORGE LAMB: At least Lee is not tempted to drink it anymore.

    • 39:52

      JAMES LAMBERT: Because you're not used to it.You'll be all right.

    • 39:54

      DAN SCARBOROUGH: What's the verdict, doc?

    • 39:56

      JAMES LAMBERT: He'll live.He'll be fine.

    • 39:57

      DAN SCARBOROUGH: Are you in this, Lee?

    • 39:59

      LEE WOOLLARD: No.Go.

    • 40:02

      GEORGE LAMB: But once Lee has a breather,he gets up and finishes the session.

    • 40:09

      JAMES LAMBERT: Lee has shown loads of spirit today.He's obviously really keen to get involved.He wants to get involved.And I don't think he wants to let all the other boys outthere down.So he's carrying on and showing his best and doing his best.[WHISTLE]

    • 40:23

      LEE WOOLLARD: I know we're just playing touch.It's the kind of [INAUDIBLE] that catches up with you.[BLEEP]

    • 40:36

      GEORGE LAMB: Back at the house, after a last mealof healthy spag bol, the time has come for Jamesto pack up and move out.Over the three days, the guys have bondedand Lee's determined not to let James down.

    • 40:47

      JAMES LAMBERT: So how do you think it's going then?

    • 40:50

      LEE WOOLLARD: Oh, it's been good.No, you know, I've actually really enjoyed it.While you've been living here I obviouslyhaven't drank any booze.I've been eating quite healthy.I'm actually going to take in on board.I really do want to sort of get a bit fitter.But I'm going to try.

    • 41:06

      GEORGE LAMB: If Lee wants to keep his dream of being a PEteacher on track and reduce the overall biological ageof his organs from 33, he's goingto have to work hard on his targets.Lee's going to have to stay off the takeaways,pump lots of iron in the gym, and cut down on the drinkingsessions with his rugby mates.

    • 41:25

      JAMES LAMBERT: What I think he has doneis realize that he can't keep doing as he is now.If he does, then he's going to have serious healthcomplications in the future.

    • 41:33

      LEE WOOLLARD: Obviously I want to sort of try and implementeverything that he said would be good for me to do.But obviously it's going to be a bit difficult.I'll give it my best shot.

    • 41:44

      GEORGE LAMB: Over the next four weeks,James is going to be checking up on his patient.Then Lee will be completely retested to seeif he's managed to get his body age from 33 backto his own age of 22.It's a week after James moved out

    • 42:04

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: and Lee has made a determined start.Alex is helping Lee put in the hours at his local gym.

    • 42:13

      LEE WOOLLARD: I mean I've been regularly going to the gymsince James left me.I'm actually still enjoying it.It's not too much of a chore.So it's good.

    • 42:22

      GEORGE LAMB: And instead of afternoon drinking sessionsat the local pub, the rugby boys are doing some homeworkwatching the professionals.

    • 42:30

      LEE WOOLLARD: Since I last saw James,drinking has not been too bad actually.I've still been going out, but I've only got drunk once.

    • 42:44

      GEORGE LAMB: Week two and Doc James makes a house call.

    • 42:47

      LEE WOOLLARD: Not too bad.Not too bad.

    • 42:47

      JAMES LAMBERT: Nice to see you again.

    • 42:49

      LEE WOOLLARD: Want to come in?

    • 42:49

      JAMES LAMBERT: Yeah.Sure.How's it been going?How's the drinking been going?

    • 42:54

      LEE WOOLLARD: Better.I still am drinking, but I'm not drinking to the extentthat I was.It's probably half of what I was drinking.I don't know if I'll be able to get itdown to the recommended weekly.

    • 43:04

      JAMES LAMBERT: No.It's difficult, but I think you'regoing the right away about it.That's really good.So how you getting on with your diet?

    • 43:10

      GEORGE LAMB: I've been eating a lot more healthy.A lot more regularly.Proper meals throughout the day.I'm not eating crap.I've had one takeaway since you came.I'm really proud of the fact that I've notgone back to the way it was.And with Lee keeping a lid on the boozing,the guys stay in and watch a movie.

    • 43:32

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: Now, Dr. James has found one thinghe can't kill-- Lee's appalling taste in films.

    • 43:38

      JAMES LAMBERT: That is crap.

    • 43:40

      LEE WOOLLARD: He's in the past.She's in the future.

    • 43:43

      JAMES LAMBERT: That's rubbish.The heart lifting love story that reaches across time.

    • 43:45

      LEE WOOLLARD: Across time.

    • 43:47

      JAMES LAMBERT: Beautiful, man.

    • 43:47

      LEE WOOLLARD: The bird in it is so fit.She's a lot younger than me.She's got a nice rack on her, as well.

    • 43:56

      GEORGE LAMB: It's three weeks since Lee's new routine kickedin.And so far, Lee has managed to stick to the plan.But tonight Lee is about to face his biggesttest yet-- the rugby club's Valentine's boatparty on the Thames.

    • 44:13

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm not drinking as much as I normally would.I've got a few numbers, actually.So I'll give them a text [INAUDIBLE].

    • 44:23

      GEORGE LAMB: While the ladies are falling for Lee's charms,Lee is falling off the wagon.

    • 44:29

      LEE WOOLLARD: This is probably 10 [INAUDIBLE]I would say I've had about nine or ten drinks.

    • 44:35

      GEORGE LAMB: In just one night of partying,Lee sank more than the government'srecommended weekly amount of alcoholand he's starting to miss another old friend.

    • 44:44

      LEE WOOLLARD: I haven't had any fast food for like three weeksor anything like that.So I'm tempted to go and get a kebab.

    • 44:55

      GEORGE LAMB: It's the final week before Leegets retested and goes back to the autopsy theater.James is concerned that Lee has slipped back into his old ways,and so he's planned one last surprise.

    • 45:07

      JAMES LAMBERT: We're going to give you a makeover today.

    • 45:09

      LEE WOOLLARD: I hate you, James.

    • 45:11

      JAMES LAMBERT: Don't hate me, Lee.It's not like that.

    • 45:13

      MAKEUP ARTIST: All right, Lee.Take a seat.

    • 45:19

      GEORGE LAMB: But this is no ordinary beauty treatment.Our specialist makeover artist isgoing to transform Lee to show him the physical consequencesof chronic liver disease.A yellow jaundice skin and the vascularlesions of dilated blood vessels.

    • 45:40

      JAMES LAMBERT: OK?Here we go.

    • 45:48

      LEE WOOLLARD: At the time it was a bit of a shock.I'm quite proud person.And I do take pride in my appearance.If there's any sort of thing that'sgoing to make me a minion, basically, then Iwant to avoid it as much as I can.Definitely I'm not going to go back to the way that I was.

    • 46:07

      JAMES LAMBERT: Good.

    • 46:11

      GEORGE LAMB: With the end almost in sight,Lee know the last few weeks have hada massive impact on his life.

    • 46:18

      LEE WOOLLARD: When you sort of put it all together,it does sort of make you think.I'm glad I have made the changes.And I'm glad I'm not sort of carryingon going the way that I was, because like everyone's beensaying, all the doctors and that, it's not stuffthat I can really see effecting me now,it's stuff that's going to be affecting me10 years down the line, 20 years down

    • 46:39

      LEE WOOLLARD [continued]: the line, which when you're my age,you don't think about at all.

    • 46:43

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee will have to waitto see if his new regime has turned his body clock backin time.Lee's back in central London for his retests.The tests Lee is taking will tell himexactly how much he has achieved withhis new improved lifestyle.

    • 47:07

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: This is it.Lee's final results day back in our autopsy theater.

    • 47:12

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm feeling a little bitnervous about getting the results back today.I mean, I really want to find out hopefullythey'll show that I am doing wellor as well as I think I'm doing.But, at the same time, obviously I'm a bit nervous just in casethey don't.

    • 47:25

      GEORGE LAMB: How you doing, Lee?Nice to see you, mate.

    • 47:27

      LEE WOOLLARD: Nice to see you, too.

    • 47:29

      GEORGE LAMB: Welcome back to the autopsy theater.

    • 47:30

      LEE WOOLLARD: Thank you.

    • 47:31

      GEORGE LAMB: So tell me, the last few week of your lifehave been some significant health changes in there.

    • 47:35

      LEE WOOLLARD: Like really significant changes.Yeah.Been eating well.Cutting down on the drinking.So, yeah, hopefully the tests todaywill show that I've been doing quite well.

    • 47:46

      GEORGE LAMB: And, obviously, James Lambert herewas your live-in medic.He spent a bit of time.How was it living with Lee?

    • 47:50

      JAMES LAMBERT: It was just kind of gettinghim to get into the mood to do thatand just to make healthier choices about everything.And I think he's done that.

    • 47:56

      GEORGE LAMB: As with last time, we'vetaken into account all the results from the teststhat Lee underwent for the second timeto come up with these biological ages for the area of concern.And, of course, his overall biological age.First, Lee's heart.Lee's diet used to consist almost exclusivelyof takeaways, fry ups, and junk food.

    • 48:17

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: But have his lifestyle changes hadany impact on his previous biological heart age of 27?25.Well done, mate.Congratulations.Are you happy with that?

    • 48:35

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.It's going down.It's starting to go down.

    • 48:39

      GEORGE LAMB: Next, Lee's liver.Lee used to be a 13 pints a night man.He was drinking over four times the governmentrecommended limit.But the new Lee has drastically cut down.Will it, however, be enough to reduce his old liver age of 27?25.

    • 49:00


    • 49:01

      GEORGE LAMB: Happy with that, dad?

    • 49:03

      TIM: Yes.Good boy.

    • 49:05

      GEORGE LAMB: He was drinking too much, wasn't he?

    • 49:07

      TIM: He was a bit.Yeah.

    • 49:08

      GEORGE LAMB: Well, does this movein the right direction, Andrew?

    • 49:10

      ANDREW CURRAN: Yeah.Absolutely.Good man.Well done, mate.

    • 49:14

      GEORGE LAMB: Lee's metabolism.His diet had created a serious imbalancein his blood resulting in an astonishing former metabolicage of 70.Has Lee's new super healthy diet made a significant difference?

    • 49:36

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: 35.Exactly half.

    • 49:39

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.

    • 49:40

      GEORGE LAMB: Happy?

    • 49:41

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yes.

    • 49:41

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah, you should be.

    • 49:42

      LEE WOOLLARD: Happy.I mean, that was the biggest thingthat I thought I was doing really well on was justmy whole diet, making sure I was eating healthy,cutting out all the crap.

    • 49:50

      GEORGE LAMB: Obviously, I know, it was massivelyhigh, but fairly impressive in this short space of timeto have brought it down, right?

    • 49:54

      ANDREW CURRAN: You've substantiallyreduced your risk of heart attack and stroke.So well done.Brilliant.Really good.

    • 50:02

      GEORGE LAMB: And finally, it's time for the big one.Has Lee reduced his previous overall biological age of 33?This is the most important factor now.This is the one that we'd like to see come down significantly.Let's see what the new health choices in Lee's lifehave done to his overall biological age.

    • 50:34

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: 25.

    • 50:36

      LEE WOOLLARD: Done.Thank you very much.

    • 50:38

      GEORGE LAMB: Are you pleased, sir?

    • 50:40

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yes.Very pleased.Very pleased.

    • 50:42

      GEORGE LAMB: You happy you feel like your hard work haspaid off?

    • 50:44

      LEE WOOLLARD: Yeah.And like everyone has been saying, it's only the start.So hopefully if I carry on the way I'm going,maybe cut down a bit more on the booze,we can get down to my actual age.I feel really, really proud of myself.I mean, it's easy for me to sort of sayin front of friends and family, yeah,I'm going to make these changes.I'm going to do it.And then I could go away and not do it.

    • 51:05

      LEE WOOLLARD [continued]: But I'm really glad that I have.And now I've got sort of proof as well that it is working.So I'm really pleased.Really proud.

    • 51:11

      GEORGE LAMB: The next little while is obviouslygoing to be the toughest part because doing itright at the beginning you've gotall the support of everybody, but carrying it on now.

    • 51:19

      LEE WOOLLARD: I'm still going to havethat support with my friends and family and stuff.So they're the ones that sort of reallymake a difference and sort of spur you on type thing.So I'm definitely not going to go back to the way I was.

    • 51:30

      GEORGE LAMB: That's good news.Well, listen, well done.I'm really pleased for you.

    • 51:34

      LEE WOOLLARD: Cheers.Thanks a lot.

    • 51:35

      GEORGE LAMB: Great news.

    • 51:36

      LEE WOOLLARD: This has been a life changing experience.I'm really glad I did this and I'm reallyat the changes I've made because I did want to make themin the first place, and this sort ofpushed me towards making them.And I'm feeling a lot better for it.And I'm going to keep it up, I think.[MUSIC PLAYING]
