TV medic Dr Tijion Esho, who has featured on , is currently under investigation by the medical watchdog after allegations were made against him.

The 40-year-old has been on the ITV morning programme to provide his medical opinion and comment on cosmetic surgery discussions and has appeared on other programmes including E4’s Body Fixers.

Dr Esho has had restrictions placed on his practice while an inquiry is conducted by the General Medical Council (GMC) following complaints.

As part of interim conditions, the doctor, also known as Dr Oluwafemi Esho, must not carry out consultations on female patients without a chaperone or have contact with patients outside of a clinical setting.

A statement from the GMC said: ‘Dr Oluwafemi Esho has restrictions on his practice while we investigate the allegations against him.

‘We referred Dr Esho to an Interim Orders Tribunal at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in August 2022, who imposed a number of interim conditions on his practice.

‘These include that, except in life-threatening emergencies, he must not carry out consultations with female patients without a chaperone present and except in life-threatening emergencies he must not make contact with patients outside of a clinical setting, either virtually or face-to-face.’

An ITV spokesperson said: ‘Dr Tijion Esho is not ITV This Morning’s resident doctor in any capacity.

‘He last appeared on the programme over three years ago (August 2019).’ has contacted reps for Dr Esho for comment.
