CAROLINE Flack has clashed with Jameela Jamil after she criticised plastic surgery show The Surjury – despite never having watched it.
The 39-year-old, who is set to host the surgery related series next year, took to Twitter to defend the Channel 4 production.
The controversial programme, which sees contestants pitch their dream bodies to a jury of strangers, hasn’t been without its critics.
And it didn’t take long before actress Jameela voiced her opinion.
Jameela, 33, wrote: “Welp. Black Mirror is officially happening guys. It’s here.”
Host Caroline was quick to snap back, hinting that the show is far from the dark science fiction Netflix series.

She responded: “Have you managed to see a copy before me ? Please forward .. am desperate to see..”
After pitching their stories before the panel, the jury will then decide if they are worthy of the procedure.
If they can get 75% of them behind the procedures, they get them for free.
A Channel 4 spokesperson insisted that the show is simply trying to better understand why people pursue getting nipped and tucked in the first place.

They said: “Cosmetic surgery has become an increasingly mainstream choice in Britain.”
“The Surjury seeks to explore why so many people feel the need to change their bodies, and whether surgery actually makes them happier.
“All contributors featured in the series have actively been seeking surgery of their own accord.”
The spokesperson added: “This new series allows them to consult with surgical teams and then to discuss their reasons for wanting it with a panel of their peers.

“If their peers support their decision they will undergo the procedure of their choice subject to the usual surgical checks and consent processes.
“They will be psychologically assessed and supported regarding their involvement in the programme.”
Since then, Dr Munir Somji, of Dr Medispa’s London and Essex clinics, has warned show bosses of the dangers of televised procedures.

“The desire for cosmetic treatments should come from within,” he told The Sun Online.
“You might be correcting something that you don’t like, but it shouldn’t come from pressure from others.”
“Vulnerable people will be drawn to this show, and in a way it’s preying on them.”
