Beauty and The Beast - The Ugly Face of Prejudice. Channel 4: 8.00pm
Twenty-one-year-old (yep, only 21) glamour model Holly Kent meets 27-year-old Nelly Shaheen. Nelly was born with harlequin ichthyosis, a rare skin condition, which makes her look like a burns victim. Her skin could literally suffocate her if she doesn't take care of it. She is the oldest known survivor in the UK with the condition. On the other hand, Holly believes her image is her bread and butter and is proud of her career as a glamour model posing for lads magazines. Holly takes Nelly to visit strip clubs, where she auditions as a pole dancer. Then it's Nelly's turn to try and convince Holly that the job she does and the image she projects is fake and will never make her truly happy.
