Gok given goal to transform therapist; TVChoice.

ACOUPLE of years ago, a skinny man with Elton John glasses and Morrisseyesque hair started stripping unhappy women and taking their pictures.

Instead of being arrested, he became a TV sensation and taught the Brits how to look good (or at least a lot better) in the buff.

Since then, Gok Wan has become a TV institution and made over an endless succession of frumps and oddballs, and he's not slowing up on his quest to make us all look better.

In tonight's instalment, 28-year-old Sam Rees, a sports therapist for Lincoln City Football Club, lives her life in tracksuits both on and off the pitch but wants a more feminine style, so Gok blows time on her terrible wardrobe and performs his most dramatic makeover yet.

But, yes, the chances of her saying "I hate it" and attacking Gok with a football boot, are pretty slim. Also, daytime favourite Ben Shephard gets some fashion hints.
