A celebrity cosmetic doctor who featured on This Morning is under investigation by the medical watchdog after allegations were made against him.

Dr Tijion Esho, who made appearances on the ITV show alongside hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, has had temporary restrictions imposed on his practice while an inquiry is carried out by the General Medical Council (GMC).

He must not see female patients without a chaperone or have contact with patients outside a clinical setting.

Dr Esho is also among the experts who has appeared on E4’s Body Fixers.

A GMC spokesperson 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).”

The investigation comes after This Morning faced controversy over claims Phil and Holly skipped the queue for the Queen’s lying in state last month.

Sky News has approached Dr Esho for comment.
