Posted by Mary Price | 1 comment  

Researcher Phillippa Diedrichs from the Centre for Appearance Research has had incredible media exposure today for a report that looks at how men feel about talking about their bodies. The report is a collaboration between the Succeed Foundation, Central YMCA and UWE Bristol.

Here is a link to the press release that generated the media interest. Seen here during a pre recorded interview for BBC Points West tonight Phillippa has spent the past 24 hours conducting interviews with all the major newspapers.

Coverage includes features in the Times (including a cartoon), the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, the Mail and the Mirror, Top News USA online, BBC online and more enquiries have been coming in throughout the day..

The research will feature tonight on ITV West news and BBC Points West.

The CAR team involved in the project includes Nicole Paraskeva, Emma Halliwell and Glen Jankowski.
