TLC UK has ordered a pair of Jodie Marsh documentary specials, which will see the glamour model exploring issues of virginity and adultery.

Jodie Marsh On… Virgins follows Jodie as she explores society’s attitude towards virginity and explores abstinence, the value of virginity and the trade of virgin trafficking.

Jodie Marsh On… Lying Cheating Men will follow Jodie as she explores the reasons why some men cheat on their partners, with the hopes of identifying the warning signs of infidelity.

These are the latest in TLC’s long line of Jodie Marsh On… documentary specials, which have been a feature on the Discovery owned channel since it launched in the UK last year. Today’s commissions follow on from the recent orders for Jodie Marsh On… Mail Order Brides and Jodie Marsh On… Plastic Surgery. The four specials, which will air as a series on TLC in the UK and Benelux later this year, are being produced by UK indie Knickerbockerglory. The executive producers are Jonathan Stadlen and Mark Procter.

“Jodie’s one-off documentaries have really resonated with viewers so it’s fantastic to be able to bring them a strong four-part series” said Sarah Thornton, Vice-President of Production and Development for Factual Entertainment at Discovery Networks International. “Jodie always brings a unique perspective to her films and these will be no exception. She has a knack for bonding with the truly extraordinary characters she meets and gaining fresh insights into the worlds she explores.”

While executive producer Jonathan Stadlen added: “Jodie is highly adept at exploring the lives of fascinating contributors – offering a real insight into subjects she is passionate about. I hope that these two new films, delving into some of the pressing issues faced by women everywhere, will help the Jodie Marsh On… brand go from strength to strength”.
