Inside TV’s Celebrity Detox as stars are forced into disgusting treatment – leaving one contestant traumatised | The Sun
BRACE yourself for some of the most disgusting scenes in TV history next week with The Big Celebrity Detox.
The new series sees a wellness guru down a bottle of six-month-old fermented urine in front of shocked contestants, including Kerry Katona and Martin Roberts.
The stars are so revolted, they threaten to walk off set.
The segment is part of a urine therapy treatment introduced to the celebs, which gets them to sip their own wee to boost “focus and energy”.
But in a “don’t try this at home” moment their therapist sinks his own old urine, despite the show’s narrator claiming it “goes against medical advice”.
A source said: “This will go down as one of the most nauseating scenes ever on TV. It’s horrendous, an uncomfortable moment for the celebs, but also for viewers. Kerry was particularly traumatised.”

The E4 series, which starts on Monday, involves stars taking part in extreme de- tox treatments to improve their mental health and banish their demons.
Other famous names in it include Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson and the late Queen’s cousin Princess Olga Romanoff.
The stars also make themselves sick eating Pinon Blanco seeds, to release bad energy, and even spank each other.
On drinking her own wee, Princess Olga said: “It wasn’t as bad as I thought. I drink a lot of water, so it was very pale and didn’t have an odour or a particular taste.”

He is fronting the ITV series alongside Aj Odudu and says the reality show will be going back to its roots when it comes to casting new housemates.
Speaking for the first time about his role, the ex-T4 host told The Sun: “It’s going back to being real people.
“I think it’s time for the reality people we want to see, which is real people being authentic. That’s where the fun comes.”

It launches on BBC Three the following day at 9pm.
