      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart Burton spends his nightsout knocking back drink after drink.He regularly puts away 10 pints a session washed down with shotafter shot.

    • 00:41

      STEWART BURTON: I want to spend timethat I got free selfishly getting absolutely [BLEEP].

    • 00:46

      GEORGE LAMB: Every weekend, he hits the pubs-- then the clubs.I'm going to be surprising Stewartwith an opportunity that could radically change his life.

    • 01:01

      STEWART BURTON: And then it was out in the hallway.

    • 01:03

      DONELLA: Hey.

    • 01:04

      GEORGE LAMB: George Lamb-- how you doing, mate, all right?

    • 01:06

      STEWART BURTON: [BLEEP] doing here?

    • 01:08

      GEORGE LAMB: I've come to see you.This is it.In the most dramatic wake up call imaginable,this heavy drinking party animal is facing his own autopsywhile he's still alive.

    • 01:21

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: 91% percentage of your spermhave deformed heads.

    • 01:24

      STEWART BURTON: That's not good.That's not good at all.

    • 01:27

      GEORGE LAMB: And the surprises don't end there.

    • 01:29

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: I'm actually goingto be moving in with you for a while.

    • 01:32

      GEORGE LAMB: He's getting his very own live-in doctor.

    • 01:34

      STEWART BURTON: I hope you've cleared that with the Mrs.

    • 01:37

      DONELLA: Stewart has to change.There is no middle ground here.

    • 01:40

      GEORGE LAMB: But he's going to haveto deal with some of the toughestthings he's ever had to hear.

    • 01:46

      DONELLA: This is you dead at 35.So--

    • 01:49


    • 02:00

      GEORGE LAMB: Meet 25 year old Stewart Burton.He lives in Brighton with his girlfriend, Donella, who'sa full-time to her son, Oscar.Stewart's job keeps him at home all daytoo arranging hospitality events for clients.

    • 02:16

      STEWART BURTON: All right, thanks anyway.Bye.Bitch.

    • 02:20

      GEORGE LAMB: To make enough moneyto look after Donella and Oscar, hespends his days intensively phone bashing for new business.

    • 02:28

      STEWART BURTON: I am a hard-working individualMonday's, Friday.

    • 02:32

      GEORGE LAMB: But once a stressful working weekis over, a very different Stewart comes out to play.

    • 02:38

      STEWART BURTON: The weekends are a complete mess.[MUSIC PLAYING]Saturday night is my time.I want to spend time that I've got free selfishly gettingabsolutely wankered.Probably about an 18 hour session--

    • 02:59

      STEWART BURTON [continued]: start Saturday afternoon or go for each Sunday morning.I put on about nine or ten Buds before I get to the club.A few Sambucas as well.As soon as I am in the club, it'snon-stop drinking-- vodka Red Bulls, more Sambuca.The shots are flying all night-- a hell of a lot of beer.

    • 03:16

      GEORGE LAMB: Then there's Stewart's other essentialfor a good night out.

    • 03:20

      STEWART BURTON: I smoke about 30 a day.On the weekends, it gets a hell of a lothigher normally about 50 on a Saturday, sometimes 60and maybe a little bit of dabbling.[That's half an ounce of speed.Have any Ket?]In the past, I took a shitload of drugs.

    • 03:42

      STEWART BURTON [continued]: Obviously, growing up, being a kid,experimenting with everything-- obviously pills, cocaine, Ket,the old acid trip here and there.Everyone's got through one of them in their lifetime.That's really it.

    • 03:57

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart now only dabbles in drugs,but his general excess is becominga big problem for Donella.

    • 04:03

      DONELLA: I just don't find him attractivewhen he's in that state.I just look at him and think it doesn't look nice,and he looks sweaty.He's a mess, and he's all over the place.He doesn't know where he's going.It's like two completely different people.

    • 04:21

      GEORGE LAMB: And it's not just Donellawho hates Stewart's dark side.

    • 04:25

      APRIL: He's a demon.

    • 04:26

      STEWART BURTON: A complete [BLEEP].

    • 04:28

      APRIL: He becomes evil.And it all starts when he starts drinking.

    • 04:34

      MICHAEL: It's nice to drink back, dothe drugs, and all that, and at first, nice and calm.But near the end of the night, I see he loses control.

    • 04:42

      STEWART BURTON: Oh, yeah, all right, mate, whatever. [BLEEP]

    • 04:48

      GEORGE LAMB: All these heavy nights have taken their tollon Stewart's body.

    • 04:52

      STEWART BURTON: The last time I triedto play football, I got pulled off at halftime because Iwas throwing up.You can't play football at nine o' clock on a Sunday morningwhen you've been out on the piss until 7:00 AM.So something had to give.The football had to go.

    • 05:03

      DONELLA: The nursery today.

    • 05:04

      GEORGE LAMB: For Donella, Stewart'sout-of-control partying is threatening their futuretogether.

    • 05:10

      DONELLA: You ready?The way I feel now as standing today is Stewartbasically needs to clean up his act.He needs to cut back on the drinking or stop it completely,and if he doesn't do that, then I'mgoing to have to seriously reviewthe situation in our relationshipbecause he's going to lose everything if he doesn't stop.

    • 05:25

      STEWART BURTON: I don't want to lose Donella.I've had plenty of relationships in the past thathave gone tips up thanks to drinking and whatever else.And this time I actually want to do it properly and makeit work.I want to get married.I want to have kids with Don.And I've got a daughter from a previous relationship.I want to see them hit 18.I want to do everything that does and not be dead at 40.

    • 05:48

      GEORGE LAMB: Now Stewart is goingto get the chance to see exactly what all the years of drinking,smoking, and taking drugs has done to him on the inside.But will it shock him into makingthe changes he says he wants?This is where our living autopsy theater comes in.If Stewart is up to the challenge,

    • 06:09

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: he'll be coming right here to find outexactly how much damage his excessive partying hasdone to his body.What Stewart doesn't know yet is that he'llbe undergoing a set of intimate medical tests.He'll be MRI scanned from top to toe, x-rayed,and have his blood examined.The results will be brought together

    • 06:30

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: and presented to Stewart here in our living autopsy theater.Time to find out if he's out for it.It's 8:00 PM in Brighton.

    • 06:42

      STEWART BURTON: What do you want?

    • 06:43

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart is in his favorite pub knocking themback.I'm outside Stewart's local pub.He's inside with a couple of mates having a few drinks,and he's told us that he really wants to cut down on the bingedrinking and smoking.The only thing he doesn't know isthat he's going to get the opportunityto start changing his life around as of this evening.He says he wants to change.

    • 07:05

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: But when I break the news that he'sfacing a full day of tests and then a long waitto find out what he's been doing to himself,we'll see how keen he really is.

    • 07:17

      STEWART BURTON: And it is out in the hallway.

    • 07:19

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart, George Lamb, how you doing, mate.You all right?

    • 07:23

      STEWART BURTON: [BLEEP] you doing here?

    • 07:24

      GEORGE LAMB: Indeed, I've come to see you.This is it.You want to make some big changes in your life?

    • 07:29

      STEWART BURTON: Of course, yeah.

    • 07:31

      GEORGE LAMB: Now, there seems to be quite a lot of debrison the table.

    • 07:34

      STEWART BURTON: It has nothing to do with me.

    • 07:34

      GEORGE LAMB: Nothing to do with you?And you're on it as well?

    • 07:37

      DONELLA: I've had a couple, not many.But the man that can--

    • 07:41

      GEORGE LAMB: The man that can.

    • 07:42

      DONELLA: Has had quite a few more.

    • 07:44

      GEORGE LAMB: Right, OK.So why does the man that can want to change?

    • 07:47

      STEWART BURTON: All the relationshipsI've had throughout my life has beenruined through pissing out.I've come to the point where I'vegot this one relationship I actually want to keep.

    • 08:00

      GEORGE LAMB: It all starts now tomorrow?To London?

    • 08:03

      STEWART BURTON: What do you mean tomorrow?

    • 08:04

      GEORGE LAMB: The test.A lot of needles.

    • 08:06

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, you can [BLEEP].

    • 08:09

      DONELLA: You can do it.

    • 08:10

      STEWART BURTON: No, I can.No, I definitely want to.

    • 08:13

      GEORGE LAMB: I'm really looking forward to the living autopsyand actually seeing what state this case isin because I'm fairly confident it's not goingto be very pretty basically.

    • 08:20

      STEWART BURTON: My body at the moment--I actually think I'm doing OK.I think I'm getting away a bit.It's going to be one of my last nights.So I'm going to absolutely [INAUDIBLE],and none of you lot are going to be there.

    • 08:35

      GEORGE LAMB: It's two days later,and Stewart has turned up for the test,but he's a little worse for wear.

    • 08:41

      STEWART BURTON: Been out last night,and I don't feel very well.So I'm feeling a bit fragile today.

    • 08:48

      GEORGE LAMB: The medical tests will reveal exactly what'sgoing on inside Stewart's body.The result, which will take a week to process,will be revealed to Stewart at his living autopsy.After a full MRI scan and a lung capacity test followedby an assessment of Stewart's heart,Stewart has a cognitive test to seehow his brain is functioning after all this hardcore

    • 09:10

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: partying-- and finally, the climax.

    • 09:16

      STEWART BURTON: I'm having a fertility test done,and I am going to see how my little boys are doing-- seeif they are swimming properly.I know I've got no problems I've got a daughter already,so I know everything is working properly.I've got my little bag.I've got me little pot.Maybe I needa bigger pot actually.It's been two days-- magazines, assorteds,but I won't be needing them.I've got some videos I brought along with me.

    • 09:37

      STEWART BURTON [continued]: So I'm going to try to beat my record today.

    • 09:43

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart now has seven daysto wait before all his results are processed.Then he'll have a unique opportunityto see exactly what's going on inside his body at his veryown living autopsy.

    • 10:04

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: With Stewart and Donella waiting for the test results,it's put even more focus on the tensions in their relationship.

    • 10:12

      STEWART BURTON: Donella has told me to grow up--always asking me out the door.

    • 10:16

      DONELLA: The main problem with Stewart at the momentis obviously the excessive drinking.To actually watch someone that you love that much actuallywant to destroy themselves wittingly or unwittinglyis absolutely heartbreaking, and I couldn't hardlyput it into words how heartbreaking it is.Stewart's drinking ruins my Sundays and basicallybecause I don't really get while he's grumpy or he's paranoid

    • 10:39

      DONELLA [continued]: or he's discussing things that didn't happen the night before.Or he's too drunk to actually even beable to converse with me.And so I'm having to basically look after two children, my sonand Stewart.

    • 10:53

      APRIL: I do really feel at times for Donella.If he's being moody or having a go or whatever,she's the one that's there.

    • 11:01

      STEWART BURTON: Why don't you just love me for who I am?

    • 11:03

      DONELLA: I do.

    • 11:04


    • 11:05

      APRIL: I know she loves him to bits,and I think Stewart will be a big fool to lose her.

    • 11:11

      DONELLA: At the moment, I'm at a cross roads in our relationshipwhere I'm either going to have Stewart in my life forever,or I'm not.Stewart has to change.There is no middle ground here.He actually has to.

    • 11:24

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart's test results are in.It's almost time for his living autopsy.He's in the waiting room anxious to hear his results.[ELECTRIC SOUND]Hey, Stewart.

    • 11:36

      STEWART BURTON: Oh, there you are.

    • 11:37

      GEORGE LAMB: How you doing, fella?You good?

    • 11:38

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, good, you?

    • 11:39

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah, I'm all right.Now you were out on the town again last night.

    • 11:42


    • 11:43

      GEORGE LAMB: So you thought you'd go out with a bangnow that the new Stewart starts as of today, yeah?

    • 11:46


    • 11:47

      GEORGE LAMB: OK, now, obviously today's results day, right?So there might be some stuff herethat is a little bit hard to stomach.Now I'm going to get the porters in.What we're actually going to do-- because we'regoing to be moving you around, we'regoing to ask you to get strapped in now.We're going to take you next door,and we're going to start your living autopsy, all right?

    • 12:07

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: You comfortable?

    • 12:08

      STEWART BURTON: Well, I'm in a leotard and Y fronts.I can't feel anymore comfortable.

    • 12:12

      GEORGE LAMB: It's quite fetching, that.You want to take him through?See you in a bit.[MUSIC PLAYING]

    • 12:44

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: He's in.All right, basically what we've doneis we've re-created an image of all of your organs.Here's your state-of-the-art graphics.And we're going to be able to figure outexactly what your lifestyle's done to your organs.And I've got some good news.We're not alone today.Here's some of your family up here.

    • 13:13

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: Surprised to see them?

    • 13:15

      STEWART BURTON: I knew something was up, actually.

    • 13:18

      GEORGE LAMB: Now, I've got another bit of good news.I'm not going to be carrying out the living autopsy.We've got Dr. Andrew Curran for that.With 25 years experience, consultant neurologist,Andrew Curran, is Stewart's living autopsy doctor.So tell us, doctor, what's going to be happening today?

    • 13:34

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Well, my job here todayis to present you with your results.By the end of the procedure, you shouldhave a clear understanding of where your body's got to.

    • 13:43


    • 13:44

      DONELLA: You nervous?

    • 13:46

      APRIL: Yeah.I'm a mum, ain't I?

    • 13:48

      DONELLA: Yeah.

    • 13:48

      GEORGE LAMB: Great.Porters, if you want to come in, please.25-year-old Stewart is about to find out if and howhis excessive lifestyle has damaged his insides.

    • 14:02

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: All right, Stewart,we will begin your living autopsy.So what's happening now is the primary incisionis occurring, coming down the skin of your chest.We retract that, pull the skin back,and we'll see a heart, and your lungs, your liver,and your intestine all beating away.These are as accurate as we can get

    • 14:24

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN [continued]: representation of what your internal organs wouldlook like.

    • 14:27

      DONELLA: Those are actually his organs?

    • 14:30

      APRIL: It's unbelievable.

    • 14:32

      GEORGE LAMB: Andrew's most concerned about Stewart'sheart, lungs, sperm, and brain.But first, it's Stewart's liver.He's had a drink every day since the age of 16,and at the weekends, he goes really crazy,sinking the government-recommended weeklylimit in a single day.

    • 14:54

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Your liver testshave come back as being normal.

    • 14:58

      APRIL: That's good.That's good.

    • 14:60

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: On one level, that's good news.On another level, however, the amountof alcohol that you take-- it is likelythat at a microscopic level, thereis liver damage occurring.

    • 15:09

      GEORGE LAMB: That was the organ you were most worried about,wasn't it?

    • 15:10

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, yeah, and from the sounds of it,if it is knackered, you ain't going to see it coming on.It just happens. [INAUDIBLE].

    • 15:16

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: And that's absolutely correct--not ultimately good news if you keepgoing the way you're going.

    • 15:20

      GEORGE LAMB: It's likely down to Stewart's bodybeing genetically able to cope with this level of boozethat his tests are all clear.But Stewart's liver is unlikely to copewith this constant pounding long term.Next up are Stewart's lungs.He smokes 30 cigarettes a day and can get through up to 60on a night out.

    • 15:40

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: He is so breathless, he's even had to give up playing sports.

    • 15:47

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Here we have an animation of your lungs.Your overall lung should be a nice, healthy, pink color.And what we can see is that we wouldbelieve that they are starting to have areas of discolorationappearing on them.

    • 15:59

      DONELLA: God.

    • 16:00

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: What's going on underneaththat is all those fags that you've smoked over the yearshave been leaving behind crud reallyin your lungs, which gradually builds up.You can't get rid of all of it.On a day-to-day basis, Stewart, do you everfeel short of breath?

    • 16:14

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, I can't play football anymorewithout throwing up again.I just don't bother anymore.That's why I don't exercise.

    • 16:21

      GEORGE LAMB: So one of things we're going to do todayis actually show you the biological age of each organ.Then we're going to find out your overall biological age.It's going to differ from your natural birth age,but what we're going to do is lookfrom a biological perspective, that'show much use you've given them over those 25 yearsand see if there is any difference.We're going to start it off now.Now at 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 37, 39, 40.

    • 16:58

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: [ALARM]Stewart, your lungs are 15 years older biologically.

    • 17:05

      STEWART BURTON: Through smoking?

    • 17:06

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah.

    • 17:07


    • 17:08

      DONELLA: 15 years older than he is.That is unbelievable.

    • 17:10

      APRIL: And I started smoking when I was 10.What are mine like?I got quite upset because I thought that, well,perhaps if I myself hadn't have started smoking perhapshe wouldn't have done.

    • 17:23

      GEORGE LAMB: The next organ that doctor wants to look atis Stewart's heart.He mainly eats junk food, which containshigh levels of saturated fat.This can dangerously raise cholesterol levelsand puts the heart under tremendous strain.

    • 17:37

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Your total cholesterol is 5.6.And the upper level of what we consider to be safe is five.You'd like them to be somewhere between 4 or 4.5.

    • 17:46

      STEWART BURTON: Well past the upper level, really.

    • 17:48

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: So you are well past the upper level, yes.Do you pay any attention to cholesterol?

    • 17:51

      STEWART BURTON: No, when it comes to my diet,I eat a lot of takeaways.I like pizza.

    • 17:55

      DONELLA: We'll go shopping and spenda fortune on food shopping to cook at home,and then we'll get to dinnertime, he'll go,oh, no, no, no, I really fancy a takeaway.

    • 18:02

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Even though you're staying slender,actually inside, that cholesterolis starting to build up and cause problems.And over years, that will significantlyincrease your risk of heart attacks and strokes.

    • 18:14

      APRIL: It's a time bomb waiting to go off.

    • 18:16

      GEORGE LAMB: All right, well, listen, what we're going to do.We're going to figure out the biological age of the heart.As we start on again at 25, which is Stewart's birth age,we should see it go up, 26, 27, 28, 29.

    • 18:28

      APRIL: Ah, it's still going up.

    • 18:32

      DONELLA: Oh, god.

    • 18:34

      GEORGE LAMB: 38, 39.[ALARM]

    • 18:39

      APRIL: You're joking.

    • 18:40

      GEORGE LAMB: All right, 40.

    • 18:41

      STEWART BURTON: I can't believe that.

    • 18:44

      GEORGE LAMB: If Stewart continueswith his high-fat diet, in 10 to 15 years,it could have a huge impact on his heart.

    • 18:53

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: This is what your lifestyle couldpotentially do to your heart.What we see here particularly are these areas of whitenessappearing on your heart.And that almost certainly will represent underlying damageto the heart muscle as the vesselsbecome thickened and less able to get blood to the heart.Alcohol, smoking, and drugs all poison heart muscle.

    • 19:16

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN [continued]: So you keep going the level of access that you have been,and yeah, by 40, 45, there's a strong chance you'llbe in heart failure.

    • 19:25

      GEORGE LAMB: Heart failure at 40?

    • 19:26

      STEWART BURTON: No.I don't think so.

    • 19:27

      GEORGE LAMB: No, thanks?

    • 19:29

      STEWART BURTON: No, thanks.I want to see my daughter grow up.

    • 19:31

      GEORGE LAMB: How old will your daughter be when you're 40?

    • 19:33

      STEWART BURTON: 17.Yeah, that's pretty mad.

    • 19:37

      MICHAEL: I'm following in the same footsteps,doing the same stuff.If that's happening to him, the same is happening to me.

    • 19:46

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart and Donella planto start a family together soon.One thing Stewart has never worried aboutis the state of his sperm.

    • 19:53

      STEWART BURTON: I think nothing would ruin my sperm.All my sperm is good.

    • 19:57

      GEORGE LAMB: Until now.

    • 19:59

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Now, Stewart, with your sperm sample,this is a normal sperm here-- a nice, oval head-- about halfof it filled with this bluey, purple color.What you have, however, is a lot of spermthat look like this, rather crumpled heads-- shapedall wrong.

    • 20:15


    • 20:16

      GEORGE LAMB: You seem to be saying they are deformed,right?

    • 20:18

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: They are deformed heads.So that's right.

    • 20:21

      GEORGE LAMB: What are the implicationsof having deformed sperm?

    • 20:23

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Well, having deformed sperm headsis actually relatively normal.You should have less than 70% of your sperm with deformed heads.So less than 70% means you have normal fertility.You've got 91% of your sperm have deformed heads.So that significantly reduces your chance of fertility.

    • 20:47

      GEORGE LAMB: The poor quality of Stewart's spermis a direct result of his excessive smoking,drinking, and drug taking past.

    • 20:55

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: The very excessive lifestyleyou lead is well known to be associatedwith significant problems with fertility and sperm production.The other thing as well is that sperm with deformed heads--people have a substantial proportion of those.There does seem to be an increased riskof having abnormal children.

    • 21:15

      DONELLA: [GASP].

    • 21:16

      APRIL: You're joking.

    • 21:17

      DONELLA: We could have deformed kids?I can't even bear to think about that.That's horrendous, and that's, if nothing else,should give him the push.

    • 21:27

      STEWART BURTON: The sperm one's shocking.Yeah, really bad.I was close to tears to be honest with you.

    • 21:34

      GEORGE LAMB: Do you want more kids?

    • 21:35

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, definitely.

    • 21:37

      GEORGE LAMB: OK.We're going to move on to your brain now.The final organ under scrutiny is Stewart's brain.So how was all the booze and his drug-taking pastaffected his brain matter?

    • 21:51

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: What we're particularlylooking at here, actually, is your nosebecause one of things we know from peoplewho have abused cocaine is that they get swellingof the lining of the nose.And that swelling can become bad enoughto punch holes through the septum, the thing that goesdown the middle of the nose.The normal lining of the nose looks like this.

    • 22:13

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN [continued]: And what we can see here in your right nostrilis very thickened, white mucosa.So it's very, very inflamed.

    • 22:21

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart, did you predominatelyuse your right nostril for snorting the cocaine?

    • 22:25

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, I always do.

    • 22:26

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah.

    • 22:26

      STEWART BURTON: I always do.

    • 22:27

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: The next thing that happensis the septum collapses.And if that collapse comes bad enough,then the whole of your nose collapses as well.So it's actually a physically altering thing.

    • 22:36

      DONELLA: I've seen him blow his knows like [BLOWING SOUND],and he has this nasty lump of cartilage.So obviously, it grows back, and then it comes out again.

    • 22:45

      APRIL: It detaches.

    • 22:45

      DONELLA: It's green, and it's massive like that.

    • 22:48

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: The other interesting thing, though,away from the scans is your cognitive tests.Now, when we look at your reaction times,they're not good for your age.

    • 22:57

      STEWART BURTON: A shit lifestyle has made me a bit [INAUDIBLE].

    • 22:59


    • 23:01

      GEORGE LAMB: All right, so what we're going to do nowis we're going to figure out the biological age of your brain.We've done this primarily through the useof the cognitive tests.We've got your birth age up 25.If we can start that off, please.It's going up now, 28, 29, 30, 33, 34, 38, 29, 40, 42, 43,

    • 23:25

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: wow!

    • 23:26

      APRIL: Oh, no.

    • 23:27

      GEORGE LAMB: Were you expecting it to go like this, Stewart.

    • 23:29

      STEWART BURTON: That's a bit-- oh, my god.

    • 23:31

      GEORGE LAMB: 54, 55, 56, 58, wow!65, 66, 68.

    • 23:40

      STEWART BURTON: It's a bit too high.

    • 23:42


    • 23:44

      APRIL: What?

    • 23:45

      GEORGE LAMB: Your brain has got a biological ageof 68, Stewart.

    • 23:49

      STEWART BURTON: That's not good.That's not good at all.

    • 23:52

      GEORGE LAMB: That's pickled.

    • 23:54


    • 23:55

      DONELLA: He's got the brain of an old-age pensioner.

    • 23:56

      APRIL: Yeah.

    • 23:57

      DONELLA: In his 20s.

    • 23:58

      GEORGE LAMB: On a day-to-day, are you feeling as sharp as youfelt over the last--

    • 24:03

      STEWART BURTON: Umm, no.

    • 24:05

      DONELLA: His memory is like a goldfish.You have to tell him everything 10 times.

    • 24:09

      STEWART BURTON: I was just really, really shockedabout the age of my brain.That's just completely mad.

    • 24:15

      GEORGE LAMB: How are you feeling?

    • 24:16

      STEWART BURTON: All of a sudden, I'vegot pickled brain, dodgy jizz, and--

    • 24:23

      GEORGE LAMB: If Stewart were to stop now,the damage he's done so far-- is it reversible?

    • 24:29

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Yes, it is, and thereisn't a simple solution to where you've got your body to.It's going to be to do with looking at your whole lifeand saying, hang on a sec, look at everything I do in my life--there is no health here-- and findingways of replacing those unhealthy choiceswith healthy choices.

    • 24:48

      STEWART BURTON: It's really good to knowthat I can get back to normal.

    • 24:50


    • 24:51

      GEORGE LAMB: All right, coo, listenStewart, what we're actually going to do now is zip you up.That is the end of your living autopsy.

    • 25:06

      DONELLA: If he doesn't actually make a change after seeingthat he's actually slowly killing himself,I actually don't want to be witness to watching him killinghimself, and I will walk away.

    • 25:14

      APRIL: He can succeed, and I've got every faith in himthat he can do it.And I'm there for him.

    • 25:21

      GEORGE LAMB: For 25-year-old Stewart,will there be another big shock as we find out his overall bodyage.So, Stewart, what a day.

    • 25:35

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, what a long day.I'm still shocked, to be honest with you.

    • 25:39

      GEORGE LAMB: We've got mum and Donella and your two brothers.How are you doing?There's a few tears right across.Basically, what we're going to do nowis figure out the overall biological age.We're using all the results.We've put them together, and we'vecome out with an overall biological age for Stewart.All right?So we're going to start off at 25.And then we're going to say how it differs

    • 26:00

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: from a biological perspective if we start that offnow-- 26, 27, 28, 29, 31, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40, 41.

    • 26:25

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: [ALARM]So your overall body age is 16 years olderthan you are by birth, Stewart.

    • 26:33

      STEWART BURTON: Hmm, two years younger than my mum.

    • 26:35

      GEORGE LAMB: It's two years younger than mum.Wow!That must be a bit of an eye-opener for you.

    • 26:40

      STEWART BURTON: Absolutely.

    • 26:41

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah?

    • 26:42


    • 26:42

      GEORGE LAMB: So, listen, the next time you come and see us,we are hoping that your overall biological age isgoing to come right down.

    • 26:48

      STEWART BURTON: It was weird because what I actuallycame in for, I actually left with totally the opposite.I thought it was just going to be a bit of wear and tearand that, and a bit of a buggered liver-- nothing,not even on the same scale-- 10 times worse.[ELECTRIC SOUND]

    • 27:07

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart has been left shockedby the results of his living autopsy.But it's not too late for him to do something about it,and he won't be alone.We're going to partner Stewart with oneof our hand-picked team of young medics.The most suitable medic for Stewart is 32-year-oldLeanne Hayward.Her field is psychiatry, and she'spassionate about the healing benefits of exercise.

    • 27:31

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: She'll offer all the guidance Stewartneeds to start making changes in his life.And to kick start his new routine,Leanne is going to be moving in for three days.It's been a day since the autopsy,and Stewart is already making changes.

    • 27:51

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: He's stocked up on healthy food and almost halved the fagshe's smoked.He's decided not to touch a drop of drink.But there's still a lot of booze in the flat.Stewart has gone straight back to work.What he doesn't know yet is that Leanne's in town,and she's about to surprise him.[PHONE RINGS]

    • 28:14

      STEWART BURTON: "Hi, meet me at the Queen's Hotelin the lobby in one hour.I'll wearing long, brown boots."

    • 28:29

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart's mystery texter is Leanne,and she's here to help him work out the best way to bring downhis biological ages.

    • 28:36

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: How are you doing?

    • 28:37

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, good, thanks.

    • 28:38

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Come and grab a seat.So I'm Leanne, and I'm a doctor.I wonder if you can just tell me what your goals actually are.

    • 28:47

      STEWART BURTON: I've seen no drugs,a lot healthier diet, which I've started already,cut back on the smoking to about 10 a day.I don't go to the gym.I don't play football anymore.I want to get back to that.

    • 28:58

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: And what about the alcohol?You said that was a problem.

    • 29:00

      STEWART BURTON: I've still got alcohol in the house.I haven't touched it.I haven't touched one drop since I've got the results back.I want to be able to search and justgo out with Donella on a night outand not have her look after me for the nightand actually have a good time.

    • 29:15

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: You don't know this,but I'm actually going to be moving in with you for a while.

    • 29:20

      STEWART BURTON: OK.I hope you've cleared that with the Mrs.

    • 29:25

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Thank you very much.I think we need to be really careful with Stewartthat he doesn't just totally stop everything because hecould run into more problems.He may be more likely to end up falling off the wagonif he tries to cut out absolutely everything.We need to do it in moderation and in a waythat he's able to keep up with so he can continuefor the next 5, 10, 15 years.

    • 29:47

      GEORGE LAMB: This is going to be Leanne's homefor the next three days.

    • 29:50

      STEWART BURTON: Do you want a cup of tea?

    • 29:52

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: That would be fantastic.Thank you very much.

    • 29:54

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart wants to cut out drugs, cut backon smoking, and stop drinking.And Leanne is on a mission to help.

    • 30:03

      DONELLA: Who is this strange lady in my house?

    • 30:05

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Hello, I'm Leanne, nice to meet you.

    • 30:06

      DONELLA: Hi, I'm Donella.This is Oscar.Oscar, come and sit down.Listen, mommy wants to tell you something.Leanne is here to help Stewy to get better.Yes, so Stewy can play football with you.

    • 30:16

      OSCAR: Yeah.

    • 30:17

      DONELLA: And run around in the park.

    • 30:18

      OSCAR: Yeah.

    • 30:19

      DONELLA: Instead of being asleep all day.

    • 30:21

      OSCAR: Yeah.

    • 30:22

      DONELLA: It'll be better, won't it?Yeah, will it be better.

    • 30:25

      OSCAR: No.

    • 30:29

      GEORGE LAMB: Leanne wants to knowhow Donella feels Stewart's drinking affects his behavior.

    • 30:34

      DONELLA: Sometimes I feel I've got two kids because when'sStewy's highly intoxicated on a night out,I do have to go into nurse mode.So, yeah, I do feel like I'm a parent too sometimes,which is a real shame.

    • 30:45

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: It sounds like it's reallydifficult for you as a couple.

    • 30:47

      DONELLA: Yeah, it's very tough.It's really hard.Of course, I love him to bits, and I wantto start a family with him.But I don't want to have a child with somebody that'squite so volatile and then safe at the moment within himself.So, yeah, things are rocky, and then they are smooth,then they are rocky, and they are smooth.

    • 31:06

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart usually windsdown after a hard day's work with several drinks.So it's off to the local for the three of them.

    • 31:13

      STEWART BURTON: This is normally where I get a little bit messyquite a few nights a week.

    • 31:17

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: This is where it all starts.

    • 31:18

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, it's where it starts.After you.

    • 31:21

      DONELLA: Thank you.

    • 31:22

      STEWART BURTON: I'll have a pint of Diet Coke, please.

    • 31:24

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: So what was that like?You're asking for a pint of Diet Coke.

    • 31:28

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, a little bit different.It's the first time I've been a pub without a drink.

    • 31:33

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: A large proportionof people that drink as much as you do,if they try to go to zero, there isa real chance that a certain percentage would have alcoholwithdrawals, and that's things like the sweats, the tremors,the nausea, vomiting.

    • 31:47

      STEWART BURTON: Right, so I actuallywant to give up drinking.But it's actually a bad idea for me to do that-- just full stop.

    • 31:54

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Yeah, the advicewould be if you're drinking the amount that you were drinking,you need to do it in a reduced way.The other thing I was going to mentionbecause I noticed it today was youwere smoking when you were working.

    • 32:06


    • 32:08

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: And I have a lotof concerns about that not just for you, but also for Donellaand particularly for Oscar, because if he's in a house--

    • 32:16

      STEWART BURTON: Well, I don't smoke in front of Oscar.I smoke out the window.I smoke in the kitchen.

    • 32:21

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Cigarette smoke doesn't allgo out of the window.So there's a very real possibility that you'll stillget the effects of that smoke hanging around,and the safest way to avoid that is to say,let's have a complete house smoking ban.So if you want to smoke, go downstairs,go out the front door.Do it completely away from the house.

    • 32:38

      STEWART BURTON: All right, god, if Ihave to walk up and down the stairs 10 times a day,I'm probably going to end up smoking none.

    • 32:49

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: I think it's greatthat he's saying he wants to cut his alcohol right down.But I do have some concerns because he does put himselfat quite serious medical risk.I have tried to explain to him the dangers of suddenlystopping your alcohol intake when it'sbeen to such an excess level.He might become irritable, more agitated as a result of that.

    • 33:12

      STEWART BURTON: This way I've got no caffeine.I've got no alcohol.I've got no fatty foods.I'm eating healthy food.And now that I've got strange women staying here,I am not getting any jiggy tonight.You can't do that with visitors in the house, apparently.[MUSIC PLAYING]

    • 33:39

      GEORGE LAMB: It's Leanne's second day in Brighton,and things are tense.

    • 33:44

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: They are out driving together.

    • 33:46

      OSCAR: No, I did that.

    • 33:48

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Well done, you.

    • 33:49

      GEORGE LAMB: Stewart's moods are all over the placedue to him giving up booze and cutting back on cigarettes.And things came to a head this morning with Donella.

    • 33:57

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: There was a lot of tension in the housetoday.So there was quite an argument between Donella and Stewartthis morning, and in my opinion, Ido think that the cutting down the alcohol and thetrying to cut out the cigarettes has had a part to play in that.

    • 34:10

      STEWART BURTON: I'm just pissed I'm notspending time with her at all.

    • 34:14

      DONELLA: He has needs that need to be met,and I'm not meeting them.

    • 34:18

      STEWART BURTON: I've got nuts like melons.I haven't got shagged for two weeks.Nah, it's been about a week.And, nah, I just feel like I've hardlyseen her in the past week.That's all.

    • 34:27

      DONELLA: Men.

    • 34:32

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: I understand youand Donella had a few words this morning.

    • 34:36


    • 34:37

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Yeah, how are you feeling about that?

    • 34:40

      STEWART BURTON: It'll blow over I guess.

    • 34:43

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Is that how things usuallyare for the two of you?

    • 34:47

      STEWART BURTON: Pretty much, yeah.

    • 34:52

      DONELLA: Hey.

    • 34:53

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Hi, there.How are you?

    • 34:55

      DONELLA: OK.

    • 34:56

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: How are things going?

    • 34:57

      DONELLA: There's lots of different stresses going onat the minute, and we haven't really had that much timeto be that intimate.Stew is a virile man-- has needs,and I haven't really been meeting those lately.

    • 35:12

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Are you guys able to chat about thingsand sort things out?

    • 35:17

      DONELLA: To be honest, when we have an argument,it's quite difficult to chat because we'reboth quite volatile.I say how I feel.He says how he feels.I appreciate what he says.I don't think he understands what I saidwith that because that's fine.

    • 35:32

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Stewart, is thereanything you want to add at the moment?Or not really?

    • 35:35

      STEWART BURTON: Not really, no.

    • 35:41

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: I think it's goingto be quite difficult with Stewart to actually get himin touch with his emotions because as you talk to him,he really does put his guard up.So I'd like to try and get him to startthinking about how does he change-- how does his behaviorchange when he's drunk?

    • 35:56

      GEORGE LAMB: Leanne wants to show Stewart the transformationthat occurs when he's wasted.So she decides to show him some footage of him on a nightout before he's living autopsy.[MUSIC PLAYING]

    • 36:09

      STEWART BURTON: I look so pissed.Oh, [INAUDIBLE].

    • 36:16

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Is that quite shocking for you to see?

    • 36:18

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, it is looking at itnow because, obviously I never get to see what I'm like.Why don't you just love me for who I am?

    • 36:25

      DONELLA: I do.

    • 36:27


    • 36:29

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Have you got any recollection of that nightand saying that to Donella?

    • 36:33

      STEWART BURTON: No, not at all-- not at all.

    • 36:35

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: And seeing it like this--how does it leave you feeling?

    • 36:38

      STEWART BURTON: Oh, I was disrespectful, isn't it.I have never disrespected her sober, so I mean,I'm past caring there.

    • 36:47

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: And if someone was to come across youin the club looking like that, what do you think they would--

    • 36:52

      STEWART BURTON: Oh, I look like I'm going to have a fight.Are you taking the piss, well, go around, mate.Oh, don't.Oh, don't.I don't want to hear this.Oh, god.Oh, yah, all right, mate, whatever.

    • 37:05

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Do you remember it happening?

    • 37:07

      STEWART BURTON: No, I don't remember a thing.I'm embarrassed.It's embarrassing for Donella as well.

    • 37:14


    • 37:15

      STEWART BURTON: If you go down to the pub,and there's other people doing exactly that same thing,I can't stand it at all.And now I am that other person.It just doesn't make any sense.[SHRIEK]

    • 37:34

      DONELLA: OK, now, we've got you now.That's it.You can't go away.Give me five.On the side.

    • 37:38

      STEWART BURTON: Donella and my mom were right,and I've denied it.It's not the person I am, but it's justthe person I've become.It makes me more determined to stop drinking full stop.

    • 37:52

      GEORGE LAMB: The day's been overshadowed by tensionbetween Stewart and Donella.Now that Leanne feels she's understanding Stewart more,see judges it's time to ask the couple to try and mind exerciseas in the past, Stewart has resisted listeningto Donella's concerns.

    • 38:08

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: I thought it mightbe quite nice to bring you here so that you could havean opportunity to talk and to listen to each otherto explain this.

    • 38:16

      DONELLA: Sure, no problem.OK, this is the fairytale ending.We have happy wedding day, all of ustogether with Oscar and little brothers and sisters for Oscarand just being blissfully in love and happy.

    • 38:38

      DONELLA [continued]: Now, this is a nightmare ending, which is pretty much carryingon how we are.This is me basically had enough.This is another option that could be me leaving.And nobody wants to see Stewart dead at 35.

    • 38:56

      GEORGE LAMB: But it doesn't go down well with Stewart.

    • 38:58

      STEWART BURTON: Is there any need for all of this?I've already said I'm changing-- so onwards.

    • 39:09

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Emotions havebeen running high today anyway.So it's kind of understandable, and it's not easy.It must be really difficult, but--

    • 39:18

      DONELLA: I don't really know what else to say.

    • 39:26

      STEWART BURTON: I didn't really appreciate all that crapwith the drawings.I am already doing what I said I was going to do.

    • 39:44

      GEORGE LAMB: It's Leanne's final day,and a good night's sleep has workedwonders for Stewart's mood.

    • 39:51

      STEWART BURTON: OK, I'm sorry.

    • 39:52

      DONELLA: I'm sorry too.I love you.

    • 39:56

      STEWART BURTON: I love you too.

    • 39:58

      GEORGE LAMB: Leanne wants to get Stewart out of the flatand to start exercising.Stewart used to love playing football,but he stopped when he discovered the pub.As a surprise, he's going to be put through his pacesby the pros of Brighton and Hove Albion.

    • 40:17

      COACH: Nervous?

    • 40:18


    • 40:19

      COACH: Yeah?I'm sure you've got to keep up--

    • 40:20

      STEWART BURTON: I just pulled a hamstring, actually.

    • 40:22

      COACH: Everyone tries that.Everyone tries that.

    • 40:25

      STEWART BURTON: I ain't going to [BLEEP] last five minutes.Turn it in.

    • 40:27

      COACH: Nice fit.

    • 40:28

      STEWART BURTON: Good fit.

    • 40:29

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Go on, Stew.

    • 40:33

      COACH: Single feet.Good, lad.Good, well done.Get in there.Good.Drive.Drive.Good.Good.Better.Well done.Go on.Go on.

    • 40:50

      GEORGE LAMB: It's only been 10 minutes,and already, Stewart is showing signs of flagging.

    • 40:55

      STEWART BURTON: I'm pink.

    • 40:57

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Well done, Stew.How are you feeling?

    • 40:59

      STEWART BURTON: Oh, not good.

    • 41:01

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Yeah, can you do anymore?Or are you at your limit now?

    • 41:05

      STEWART BURTON: No, that's it.

    • 41:08

      COACH: Stew, try and get up and walk.Don't sit still.How do you feel?

    • 41:14

      STEWART BURTON: The head feels like it's rattling.But that's what you get when you'vegot a pickle for a brain. [INAUDIBLE] fag and sit down.

    • 41:25

      GEORGE LAMB: To help reduce Stewart's brain age of 68,Leanne wants him to practice mental agility tests.

    • 41:31

      DONELLA: Brain training.

    • 41:33

      STEWART BURTON: Thank you.Sweet.[ELECTRONIC SOUNDS]Red.It's voice recognition is wrong-- yellow.Red.Black.Yellow.[BEEP]

    • 41:53

      STEWART BURTON [continued]: The brain is in its 80s.It just gets worse.I figured I was trying to work it out.That's all.

    • 42:01

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Perfect.Over the last few days, I think he's made fantastic progress.He's very, very motivated to change his lifestyleand to change the things that have been bad for him.

    • 42:12

      GEORGE LAMB: Leanne wants Stewartto follow a plan of drinking in moderation, continueto reduce his smoking, and not to light up in the flat.She also wants him to exercise.She'll be popping back in a few weeks to see how he's doing.

    • 42:25

      DONELLA: Bye.

    • 42:26

      OSCAR: Stewy, don't go.

    • 42:29

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, it's been really good actually apartfrom me and Donella not spending time, it hasn't been that bad.That's the thing I want more than anything--spending some time with her.Yeah, she's been all right.She didn't run a Hoover around or anything,which is a bit disappointing.She didn't do any washing up.[MUSIC PLAYING]

    • 42:54

      GEORGE LAMB: It's been a week since Leanne left.And Stewart is more determined than everto get those biological ages down.Instead of relaxing with a few beers,he's getting stuck in to his brain training game.And rather than hitting the clubs,Stewart is now spending his evenings in the gym.[ELECTRONIC SOUNDS]

    • 43:16

      STEWART BURTON: The last time I joined the gym,I lasted about 15, 20 minutes probably because itwas so boring down there.It was just the gym.It was just a small room with a mirror.It's got everything else.It's got a bar on the pool table.No, I'm kidding.Yeah, I've got a lot more energy to do things, a bit more getup and go.

    • 43:35

      GEORGE LAMB: And as he's feeling so much better,Stewart heads off to watch an arsenal matchand decides it's time to have his first drink.

    • 43:42

      STEWART BURTON: Can I get a pint of 64 and a JB and Coke,please?The first drink in two weeks tastedlike it did when I was 16.So it's like starting drinking all over again.[CHEERS]

    • 44:04

      STEWART BURTON [continued]: There were four German bombers in the air.I'll just have a couple tonight.I don't feel like getting pissed.It's a school night, isn't it?

    • 44:11

      GEORGE LAMB: Instead of getting hammered,Stewart has a couple of pints before calling it a night.It's been two weeks since Leanne stayed at Stewart's.And it's time for her to pay a visitto see how he's been getting on.

    • 44:26

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Great, and how manytimes have you actually been down here?

    • 44:29

      STEWART BURTON: Since the autopsy, twice.

    • 44:30

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: OK, great, thanks.How have things been since I left you?

    • 44:36

      STEWART BURTON: Totally changed my lifestyle.I'm not going out pissing up.No drugs.No drink.Even the food I'm eating is better.I've gone from 30 fags a day in a week to 15.

    • 44:49

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: I mean, that in itself is a really greatachievement, absolutely.

    • 44:52

      STEWART BURTON: That's good for me.

    • 44:53

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Absolutely.And how about the actual smoking ban at home because thatwas something that we talked about saying howabout going outside to smoke?

    • 44:59

      STEWART BURTON: You can't keep coming up and down the stairsthrough the gate through the front doors.When Oscar has gone to bed, he wakes up.As soon as you're walking up the stairs, he'll wake up.I've had two fags out the window.

    • 45:11

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: In cigarette smoke, 85% of it is invisible.So, actually, nobody can say whether smoking out of a windowis actually good enough.

    • 45:21

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, so I can't be asked to go through with it.I'm doing enough myself at the moment with everything else.

    • 45:30

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: He's done so well with the drinking.The smoking he's made really good steps forward,but he's just got to a point where he's not able nowto take that any further forward, and that's fine.That happens for a lot of people whenthey're trying to break a cycle of behavior.You often get to a point where things stop,and you have to start off again.[MUSIC PLAYING]

    • 45:57

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD [continued]: Since changing his lifestyle, Stewartis also spending more quality time with his family.Donella has been capturing these precious moments on a homevideo.

    • 46:09

      DONELLA: Stewart, how you feeling?

    • 46:10

      STEWART BURTON: Great.

    • 46:11

      DONELLA: Good.Look, a little Sunday, and we're all out.

    • 46:15

      OSCAR: Hi.

    • 46:17

      DONELLA: So are you having a lovely time?

    • 46:18

      STEWART BURTON: Lovely time.

    • 46:19

      DONELLA: Lovely time.

    • 46:26

      GEORGE LAMB: It's Stewart's big day,and he's back in London to be retested.And this is what the past few weeks have been all about.The test Stewart's now taking willdetermine exactly how much is achievedthrough his new, healthier lifestyle.

    • 46:46

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: It's been a log slog for Stewart,but has all this hard work brought anyof his biological agents down?It's finally time for Stewart to return to the living autopsytheater.After going through another barrage of medical tests,it's time now for Stewart to find out his results.

    • 47:11

      STEWART BURTON: All right.

    • 47:12

      GEORGE LAMB: How are you doing, sir?It's nice to see you.

    • 47:14

      STEWART BURTON: Good.You too.

    • 47:14

      GEORGE LAMB: You're looking well?Are you feeling good?

    • 47:16

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, I feel really good.

    • 47:17

      GEORGE LAMB: Yeah?Has there been a big difference in your lifesince I last saw you?

    • 47:20

      STEWART BURTON: Yeah, no drink, no drugs, no shit food.I halved my smoking as well.

    • 47:25

      GEORGE LAMB: Donella, obviously you'vebeen there day-to-day with Stewart.Have you noticed a big difference in him?

    • 47:30

      DONELLA: Yeah, I mean the change has been unbelievable.It's a complete turnaround.

    • 47:34

      GEORGE LAMB: Obviously we're joined by both your doctorstoday-- Dr. Andrew Curran and Leanne.How was it being your living in with Stewart and Donella?

    • 47:41

      DR. LEANNE HAYWARD: Seeing Stewartin his environment with his partner--really useful for me to see that.

    • 47:46

      GEORGE LAMB: Andrew, what are your first impressionson seeing Stewart again?

    • 47:49

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Yeah, brilliant, man.I just made up with you, honestly.

    • 47:51

      GEORGE LAMB: Now, obviously, today we'rehere to figure out your biological ages.OK, let's start off that by having a look at your lungs.25-year-old Stewart used to smoke up to 60 fagson a night out.Now he's smoking 15 a day.Will the reduction have made any differenceto his lung age of 40.

    • 48:16

      GEORGE LAMB [continued]: 40, the same.Big shock for you, Stew?

    • 48:19

      STEWART BURTON: It's going to take yearsto get that down, isn't it?

    • 48:22

      APRIL: I would have thought even with the cuttingdown, there might have been some kind of change.

    • 48:27

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Yeah, because cutting down,he's still not getting a chance to recover.

    • 48:29

      GEORGE LAMB: All right, next up, we'regoing to take a look at Stewart's heart.Stewart used to live off junk food and didn't exercise.He's made big changes, but will it alter his heart age of 40.

    • 48:47

      GEORGE LAMB: 36.

    • 48:49

      DONELLA: Well done.

    • 48:50

      APRIL: Nice one.

    • 48:51

      DONELLA: Well done.

    • 48:52

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: Your cholesterolhas now come down to normal.

    • 48:55


    • 48:55

      DONELLA: Yay, I told you.Yeah, that's brilliant.

    • 48:58

      APRIL: Well done.

    • 48:59

      GEORGE LAMB: And then we moved on after that to your sperm.Stewart was stunned to find out hehad 91% damaged sperm caused by excessive drugs, booze,and cigarettes.He's hoping his lifestyle changes have made a difference.

    • 49:15

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: The fine news isit's come down now to the normal range.

    • 49:19


    • 49:28

      GEORGE LAMB: Donella, obviously, you guys want to have a family.That must be a real big relief for you.

    • 49:33

      DONELLA: Yeah, hugely.I'm just really pleased, and well-done.

    • 49:35

      GEORGE LAMB: And then finally we moved on to the brain.Stewart was left almost speechlesswhen his brain age was revealed at 68.He's been working really hard on this one.[MUSIC PLAYING]

    • 49:57

      DONELLA: Oh.

    • 49:57

      STEWART BURTON: I told you I pissed all over that test.

    • 50:02

      APRIL: Well done, babe.Well done.

    • 50:03

      STEWART BURTON: Look at that.

    • 50:04

      DONELLA: Oh, that's brilliant.

    • 50:05

      STEWART BURTON: That's not bad, eh?

    • 50:06

      GEORGE LAMB: Eh?You happy with that?

    • 50:08


    • 50:08

      GEORGE LAMB: Andrew, how has thatbeen possible to bring that down a whole 50 years there?

    • 50:12

      DR. ANDREW CURRAN: What you've doneis you've cleared the toxins out of your brain and the poisons,particularly alcohol ones, clear out quite quickly once youstop, and your brain cells recover quite quicklyfrom that.So this is a fantastic result, and I'm just delighted for you.It's brilliant.

    • 50:28

      GEORGE LAMB: The big one-- the one that really counts,is obviously the overall biological age.Stewart's overall body age was 41.But what is it now?28.

    • 50:44

      APRIL: Nice one.Nice one.Excellent.Well done, Stew.

    • 50:48

      GEORGE LAMB: Well done, fella, well down.

    • 50:50

      STEWART BURTON: It's good.

    • 50:51

      GEORGE LAMB: You proud of yourself?

    • 50:51


    • 50:53

      APRIL: It's nice to know now that he'snow back to near enough his normal age,and I'm very, very proud of him.

    • 50:58

      DONELLA: In a nutshell, I'm absolutely ecstatic.I couldn't be happier, and I've got my dream guy,and it sounds really cheesy, but hopefully, we'llhave a really long and happy future together.

    • 51:07

      GEORGE LAMB: Well done.Well done.

    • 51:08

      STEWART BURTON: Thanks.

    • 51:09

      GEORGE LAMB: That's impressive.Are you happy.

    • 51:11

      STEWART BURTON: Today was superb-- fantastic news.All the hard work has definitely paid off.[MUSIC PLAYING]
