Kim Booker answered questions from the committee about her body dysmorphia.

MPs say adverts should carry warnings when photos of models are digitally altered.

The Health and Social Affairs Committee wants the government to introduce new laws quickly.

She also said the social media promotion of cosmetic services such as dermal fillers should be tightly regulated.

People who book a procedure should be given a 48-hour cooling-off period and their medical and mental health history should be checked.
