BDD, or Body Dysmorphic Disorder, is a largely undiagnosed medical condition that is said to affect 1% of the British population. Sufferers are obsessed with how they look and can spend hours obsessively grooming themselves. Often misunderstood as a vanity driven obsession, people with BDD are the opposite; they believe they are horrendously ugly. In fact they are so disgusted by their looks, one in four attempt suicide.

Too Ugly for Love follows three sufferers living with BDD, and shows how they’re fighting it to regain a normal life. They’re offered therapy from one of the country’s leading experts in BDD, Rob Willson. His therapy makes sufferers carry out tasks that force them to confront the thing that terrifies them the most – the way they look.
