Born Naughty? is a TV show where the experts help children with behavioural problems, and their long-suffering parents. The programme – hosted by Dr Dawn Harper, one of the resident experts on Embarrassing Bodies – follows eight children exhibiting extreme behaviour and attempt to establish their causes and how to cope with them. The first episode had 4.2 million viewers. It is now the most watched programme on 4 on Demand in the last year.
