The future of one of Doctor Michael Mosley’s TV shows is uncertain following his death, as bosses decide whether or not to air it.

In tragic news over the weekend, the TV doctor was confirmed dead after a lengthy search led to his body being found on the Greek island of Symi.

After going missing on Wednesday, his wife raised the alarm and rescue teams powered through soaring temperatures in a desperate attempt to find him.

Sadly, it’s believed he died on the day he disappeared, with natural causes being cited as the reason.

Before his death – which has prompted an outpouring of grief on social media – Mosley was preparing to make his Channel 5 debut.

He had filmed a three-part series titled Wonders of the Human Body, in which he set out to decode the human body.

Episodes would see viewers encouraged to look at their bodies in new ways and understand how they work, particularly during ageing.

The programme was announced last autumn by the This Morning star, who was always more than happy to be a guinea pig and test theories on himself.

However, Channel 5 cannot say for certain whether Wonders of the Human Body will make it to screens.

Following reports, a spokesperson told Metro.co.ukthat it is ‘still far too early for any decision to be made’.

They added that ‘any decision taken would be entirely in agreement with [Mosley’s] family.’

Speaking about the project in September, Mosley said: ‘This was a fascinating series to make and I learned a lot about the workings of the human body in general, and my own in particular, which I am looking forward to sharing.’

Founder of TV indie Storyboard, Natalie Humphreys, said the aim of the showwas ‘to make the science of the human body relatable and appealing to a big broad audience.’

‘There’s so much we still don’t know and discoveries are being made all the time, so making this new series is exciting for us.’

Throughout his life, Mosley dished out medical advice on countless TV and radio shows, from Loose Women to Lorraine and BBC Radio.

He was one of the first reporters on The One Show, having joined the evening programme in 2007 and being hailed as a ‘dear friend and colleague’ by presenter Alex Jones on Monday night.

As well as being a regular media contributor, Mosley had his own shows and podcasts, including BBC2’s Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, and Channel 4’s Who Made Britain Fat? and The Secrets of the Big Shop.

The revered TV personality is survived by his wife, Clare, who is also a doctor and health writer, and their four children, all of whom flew to Symi to aid the search for him this week.

When announcing his death, his widow thanked the public for their support.
