The television star – who is renowned for getting women to drop their clothes at the drop of a hat –will be teaching the ladies of Leeds how to shop for their shape.

He will also be performing a well-deserved makeover on an inspirational bunch of women from the city.

A spokeswoman from the programme told the YEP: "Gok is thrilled to be coming to Leeds to film his new series.

"Not only will he be teaching the ladies of Leeds all about shopping for their body shape, he'll be hosting his catwalk competition with designer diva, Brix Smith Start as they battle it out with the best of the high street and designer looks.

"Leeds has been incredibly welcoming and the team are thoroughly excited about unleashing a bit of Gok magic in the city."

Gok's team have spent the last week filming in different locations across Leeds for the new television series which is due to air after the New Year.

Gok, who used to visit the city when he was growing up, recently parked his tour bus outside the home of the YEP on a whistle stop tour of the country.

He gave fashionistas in Leeds the seal of approval by naming it as one of his main fashion hot spots in the country.

But Gok said that when he isn't busy solving the nation's hang-ups he loves nothing better than donning his tracksuit and heading to the pub with his friends.
