Infested! Living with Parasites” with Michael Mosley airs tonight on BBC4 at 9pm

Michael Mosley once again turns his body into a laboratory by deliberately infecting himself with some of the most extraordinary, powerful and surprising parasites of them all.

With the help of a pill camera, Michael plays host to a metre-long tapeworm, as well as allowing head lice and leeches to feed on him.  He will also take a test to see if he is infected with a parasite that causes its host to adopt riskier behaviour.  We wonder what that will uncover!

“Infested!” is on BBC4 tonight at 9pm.
