THERE is still hope for Southampton residents with a persistent skin condition that will not go away.

TV channel 5 Star is looking for people from the city to appear on Skin A&E, the popular show which is returning for its third series.

Doors to the small screen clinic will swing open, where a team of top UK dermatologists will give participants a free consultation, advice and medical treatment if appropriate.

An advertisement from casting company Boom says: "If you, or someone you know, has a skin condition then the team would like to hear from you.

"Perhaps your condition doesn’t qualify for treatment on the NHS? Or your treatment has been delayed?

"Have you been unable to find the right treatment for your skin condition? Or are you on a long waiting list for a referral to a dermatologist?

"Our team of dermatologists would love to help you."

Applicants who are picked must be willing to talk openly and frankly about their condition and be available for filming for one day between November 2021 and January 2022.

All applicants must be legal residents of the UK, currently live in the UK and be aged 18 and above.

Deadline for applications is Friday December 17 2021.
