The Kim Kardashian Effect

Friday 2 March

From 10.00am


Presenter Katie Thistleton (centre) explores the effect that Kim Kardashian has had on the way we look. From plump lips to big booties, she meets those who have taken drastic steps to get the Kim K look - and at what cost.

We meet Stevie, whose quest for the perfect pout ended in disaster that only a specialist could save; as well as Kiera Louise, who has followed in the Kardashian’s footsteps and built her beauty business on social media.

Katie finds out what it takes to achieve the Kim K look and works out with a fitness expert to find out how to get a bigger butt, and when that fails she meets a cosmetic surgeon who specialises in bottom implants.

The Kim Kardashian Effect will be available to watch from 10am on Friday 2 March on BBC Radio 1’s iPlayer channel
