Gogglebox extra – What you didn’t see this week on TV: 'You can't fix everything with moisturiser!

Matty gives Jad a dose of reality when the Goggleboxers watch Dr Pimple Popper.

It takes a certain audience to watch a treatment in Dr Pimple Popper, and this week it was the Goggleboxers who witnessed one man's incredible journey. 

The Goggleboxers tuned in to meet a young father with a devastating case of psoriasis which covered 90 per cent of his body.

The large patches of dry, itchy skin perplexed Jad, with the business owner offering his own medical advice: "Can't you just put some moisturiser on it and it's all good?" He was met with a loud 'no' from his couch companions, with Matty adding, "Not everything you can fix with moisturiser! This guy gets a cut and he puts moisturiser on it. It's just moisturiser!"

The man finally meets Dr Sandra aka The Pimple Popper, and he's given treatment that will hopefully make some difference. 

Most Goggleboxers are skeptical, but Matty is full of confidence: "The before and after is going to be legit!"

And 10 weeks post-treatment, we catch up with the young dad to see his skin is completely cleared. 

"He's wearing a tank top! Even I don't have enough confidence to wear a tank top," Tim exclaims.

And Matty has the final say when he adds: "That was satisfying. Probably not when we're eating dinner, though..."  Yep, probably not .
