If you love chocolate and TV, then you’re just the sort of person producers are looking for.

York’s chocolatiers are joining forces to seek out chocoholics to take part in the BBC show, Trust Me, I’m A Doctor.

The show needs about 100 choccy fans to take part in an experiment. Details of what this involves are being kept under wraps.

Sophie Jewett of York Cocoa House, who has been working with the producers, said:

We know that this will involve eating of chocolate, and that it doesn’t require participants to undergo any kind of medical examination, but participants will find out more details on the day itself.

Get involved

Participants are must be aged 35-65, be available in York on Monday, June 1, and be chocolate fans with no food allergies.

The crew is hoping to make a follow-up visit on Monday, June 22.

If you’d like to take part, email your name, age, telephone number and address to [email protected] for more details.

Trust Me, I’m A Doctor sets out to provide viewers with the evidence behind health claims made in the media.

Presented by medical journalist Michael Mosley, Dr Chris van Tulleken, Dr Saleyha Ahsan and surgeon Miss Gabriel Weston, the show goes out on BBC2. Find out more on the series website.
