"Me & ICF" by Rare TV and The Gold Studios, follows British Olympic boxer Nicola Adams and her partner, model Ella Baig as they go through IVF treatment and pregnancy.

"Me & Breast Implants" shows Hannah Spearritt as she investigates Breast Implant Illness and asks important questions about Breast Augmentation surgery following her own augmentation surgery she had back in 2013. In "Me & ADHD," Tanya Bardsley was diagnosed 6 weeks before her 40th birthday with ADHD, and is recently dealing with her son's diagnosis.
