A new television series called Pop Goes The Band is bringing back stars from the eighties in order to help them improve their appearance through cosmetic surgery. The Living TV makeover documentary features four cosmetic surgery experts who advise guests on what procedures can help them improve their appearance.Former Dollar singer David Van Day participated on the show, where he had eyebags removal and a face lift. He was also joined by fellow band member and pop star Thereza Bazar. The show began with Van Day and Bazar stripping down to their underwear in order to be assessed by the team. In the end, Bazar opted for non-surgical procedures, including Botox. The 52-year-old, who also appeared on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here, has recently been known for clashing with glamour model Nicole McLean on the ITV series. Van Day has admitted that he had previously banned his daughters from watching the cosmetic surgery series, as he was worried about how he would look to them post-operation. He told the Daily Mail: "Even when I had the face lift, they didn't see me until eight weeks later. "The idea of the show is to get whatever done and then go back eight weeks later to reveal the new you. When I went back I was swollen, but now it's 100 times better. "I haven't watched the show yet, and can't really remember what I looked like before but it was pretty saggy and baggy." Living TV had previously decided to delay the release of the series after Van Day was chosen to appear on I'm A Celebrity. Van Day added: "In the jungle it was still settling down. Now I'm very pleased with it and think its done wonders."
