A DOCTOR from Sale is to appear in the new series of Junior Doctors on the BBC.

Former Sale Grammar School student, Jennifer Whiteley, graduated from Liverpool University in the summer and was asked to appear in the show alongside some of her class mates.

This will be the third series of the hit BBC3 documentary, which follows the exploits of newly-qualified medics as they start working on hospital wards for the first time.

The first episode of the new series, filmed at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, airs on BBC3 on January 17.
