Sex addict Jeff Leach confronts his fears

Director Steve McQueen's film Shame focuses on sex addiction and is released in cinemas this week but what is it really like to be a sex addict?

At just 27-years-old, comedian Jeff Leach has slept with more than 300 women. But now he wants to confront his sex addiction, and a psychotherapist is helping him to understand where his problems might stem from.

Confessions of a Sex Addict is on BBC Three, Wednesday 11 January at 21:00 GMT.
