Hi, this would mean the world to me. I’ve always been self conscious and embarrassed about certain parts of my body.
I am 39 and have always felt depressed with the way I look. My nose is bigger than I would like, my ears stick out a bit. I am going bald as well so can’t even hide these anymore. My teeth could do with sorting and my skin is blemished from my youth. I try to keep fit, but need guidance.
I have just split from a long relationship and self esteem is at rock bottom.
This would give me a new lease of life and stick 2 fingers up to those that have criticised me in the past and make me feel better in my skin.
I could move on, it would change my life forever and give me more confidence when I’m with my kids and show them a better future, without hiding away so much.
Honestly, this would make someone so happy, no more hating pictures and worried how people are looking at me and give me the chance to live life.
I really do hope to hear from you.
Many thanks

Good morning, my name is Carly , I am 30 years old from the Greater Manchester area UK.

I am writing to ask;

Is the programme Extreme makeover UK still in production?

If so I would like to please put myself forward as a candidate for the show. I have what I would consider an interesting and relevant backstory which I think would very much compliment the show. I appreciate you must get people pouring their hearts and stories out to you via email so I will not further add to that. I am more than happy to extensively talk to anyone should they be interested in my potential for the show. I have exhausted every other means of trying to get the help I need after having my son to get my body back to what it should be, both in fitness terms and aesthetic terms. This is pretty much my last shot.

I hope to hear back from you

Hi, I'm a 20-year-old girl from Liverpool. I've always had issues with the way that I look, truth is I'm scared of a change, but it needs to be done. I don't feel confident when I'm out with my friends, as they always have nice dresses and shoes and I'm always out in jeans and converse. I hate looking at myself in the mirror, the way I am depresses me. I can't smile, with knowing i have a bad set of teeth, I can't go out most of the time because I'm afraid someone will judge me. This is a long shot really, like well a big cry out for help to help me come out of my shell before I turn 21! Thanks for your time, I can see many people have commented, I hope to hear from you one day. :)

Hi I'm Lisa . I would love a extreme makeover to boost the way I feel about myself. I am 35 and for the past few years I have had health issues resulting on me having a abdominal hysterectomy last year. I have suffered from depression for many years and this has left me feeling completely unhappy about myself. My body isn't how it use to be and due to the excess weight I now longer really know how to dress anymore... I have lost all sense of who I am now. My husband and children try to make me feel better but all they say doesn't help what I see when I am undressed. I need help ..... Please xxx

Daniel is my name I am from the United States. I know I am far, but I am willing to do whatever it takes to find love. All my relationships fail because the other person says I am way 2 nice or not attractive enough. I can't afford braces and even if I could the orthodontist always sends me to an oral surgeon first to remove my wisdom teeth. The oral surgeon says he doesn't want to remove my wisdom teeth because it can cause my lower jaw to go limp and numb for life. My teeth have gotten so out of control I am having headaches everyday and can't sleep because of them. I've been trying to get into shape so maybe one day someone can see me as a partner, but everyone turns me down. I put myself out there and I get thrown away like trash. I have a messed up jaw line and a deviated septum so I've been told. My eyes are horrible and I don't know what to do. I just want to be happy.... I just want to be considered as a potential date and not the geeky looking man with crooked teeth. I want to be able to find love and be happy. I don't want to be alone anymore... I guess my looks push people away. I'm desperate.... please won't someone help me.
