“There’s people who say I look like ‘Desperate Dan’ because I’ve got a big jaw and sometimes that really hurts.”

The show delves into the latest health battles and trends sweeping the nation.
Steph previously revealed she had been left “upset and embarrassed” when she was confronted by an analysis of her faeces.
