Warner Bros. Discovery UK has commissioned a slate of new and returning lifestyle shows in the UK that will also be available on discovery+.
The Big Body Clinic is a brand-new 8×60 series produced by Full Fat TV, which will launch on Quest Red next spring. In the series, ‘weight inclusive’ experts help treat patients in larger bodies who are often scared to seek help because of the weight stigma they’ve faced. Also from Full Fat TV, The Bad Skin Clinic returns to Quest Red in Q1 of 2023 with seasons 5 and 6 (20×60) of the medical series following people whose lives have been blighted by uncontrollable and often agonising skin conditions.
In 2023, Really will also welcome back one of the biggest shows on the channel, STV Studios-produced The Yorkshire Auction House for a third and fourth season. The two new 20×60 series will see auctioneer Angus Ashworth travel the country helping clear homes of fascinating and unusual items. A second and third season of The Yorkshire Auction House celebrity spin-off will air on Really in November this year. The two 5×60 series will follow celebrities, including Anneka Rice, Sid Owen and Jennie Bond, as they give Angus access to their homes in desperate need of decluttering. Also from STV is a brand-new 8×60 series, The Edinburgh Auction House which will air on Really in 2023 and follows 5th generation auctioneer, Sybelle Thomson, working from her three different auction houses, helping people clear out their homes, sifting through lifetime’s worth of personal possessions, and secure the best profit from them at auction.
Landing on Really this October is the second season of Koska-produced Charlotte Church’s Dream Build. Back on screens, attempting to complete her renovation and overhaul derelict Rhydoldog House, in the rolling Welsh hills, into a wellness centre and healing retreat, the Welsh music icon gives viewers unprecedented access to her life and family as she attempts to finish the biggest and riskiest project she’s ever undertaken.
Two further seasons of Helicopter ER produced by Air TV will land on Really in 2022 and 2023. New episodes will see the Yorkshire Air Ambulance team save patients from life-threatening emergencies. The 14×60 season 8 and the 15×60 season 9 will provide exclusive access into their most dramatic helicopter rescues.
Beagle Media-produced Cornwall Air 999 is also back for a second ten-part season, following the critical care medics from one of the UK’s busiest air ambulance services as they respond to life and death emergencies across the county of Cornwall. The series will air on Really in early 2023.
Home renovation show, the True North-produced HGTV series, My Dream Derelict Home In The Sun is premiering later this year and Air TV-produced Derelict Rescue drops next year. Derelict Rescue is a 10×60 series that follows some of Britain’s most ambitious home builders, taking on the country’s most rundown and unusual buildings, from a water tower and airport control tower, to an abandoned railway station, to an old schoolhouse. Meanwhile, My Dream Derelict Home In The Sun (16×60), features property expert Scarlette Douglas, as she follows Brits buying derelict properties in some of the most beautiful parts of France and Spain, and attempting to turn them into their dream homes.

Discovery UK, said, “We’re really excited to expand our lifestyle portfolio with this bumper 149-hour order bringing a host of new commissions including The Big Body Clinic, Derelict Rescue, The Edinburgh Auction House as well as recommissions for some of our most popular shows with more seasons of The Yorkshire Auction House and The Bad Skin Clinic.
