POPULAR TV personality Jeremy Kyle visited Solihull on Wednesday (April 13) night to cut the ribbon and officially open Brandwood Clinic.
Kyle opened the new state-of-the-art cosmetic treatments facility in Monkspath and joined Deputy Lord Mayor Kate Wild, local business people and special guests.
The Reading-born presenter is no stranger to the Midlands after previously working at BRMB – and Kyle admitted he was genuinely moved by some of the people he spoke to when opening the clinic.
He said: “Hair loss can be a very emotive issue for many people, one they’re often expected to suffer in silence.
“I heard a lot of inspirational stories here tonight, people who’ve overcome significant issues and been helped by Brandwood Clinic.”
The 50-year-old took time out of his busy schedule, where he hosts programmes including Good Morning Britain and The Jeremy Kyle Show, to catch up with some old friends and meet senior Brandwood practitioners Paul Clark and Simon Lane.
The Brandwood Clinic name is derived from Simon’s experiences after he suffered horrific third degree burns when aged just two after playing in the kitchen of his home in Brandwood Road in Birmingham.
Brandwood director David Andrews said: “We are delighted to launch this clinic in Solihull.”
