Will You Watch Fearne's Documentary "The Truth About Online Anorexia" Tonight?

Will You Watch Fearne's Documentary About Anorexia Tonight?

Fearne Cotton was shocked to discover that she is a "thinspiration" figure for girls and women posting on pro-anorexia message boards and websites online. She found this out while she was researching for tonight's documentary The Truth About Online Anorexia, in which she talks to young women about the disease and investigates the influence that images of celebrities seem to have on these websites. As she sees her image on the site, she says:

"Oh my God, what the hell's my name doing there? That's the worst thing I've ever seen. To think girls would use that is horrific. I wish I could take myself off this website. I don't want to be associated with anything like this. Anything this website says I do not believe. Girls should not try and look like anyone. Girls, you should be yourself, know who you are and love yourself - that's the message I want to put out there. I hate the fact I'm on that site with a bunch of people who probably don't want to be there also."

The documentary is on tonight on ITV1 at 9pm and I wanted to know what you thought about the idea of the show — will you be watching it tonight? Let me know.
