Me & My Facial Disfigurement, 10pm, 5STAR

Three extraordinary women talk about living with a facial disfigurement. Yasmin, 25, has a syndrome that affects the left side of her face. Since she was seven Yasmin’s had many reconstructive surgeries and struggled with her self-confidence. Raiche, 25, was trapped in a house fire when she was a baby. She suffered burns to over 70 per cent of her body and has had more than 100 operations. Finally, university student Chloe, 22, has a port wine stain that also affects her sight in one eye. In a world obsessed with looks, it takes huge bravery to face the world when your face doesn’t look like anyone else’s. Rating: ****
