An evening with full-time Bradford GP, bestselling author and resident doctor for ITV’s Lorraine and Good Morning Britain, Dr Amir Khan. Dr Khan has recently been seen hosting Dr Amir’s Sugar Crash (Channel 5) and You Are What You Eat (Channel 5) with Trish Goddard. When he is not in surgery or on TV, Amir spends his time gardening, baking, running and supporting wildlife conservation.
He is the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Doctor Will See You Now. How (Not) To Have an Arranged Marriage is his first novel.
The book follows the adventures of a young Muslim student doctor as he is torn between his traditional family and his heart.
He’s the perfect catch (according to his mother).
Yousef is the golden child to his strict, Pakistani parents, overshadowing his younger sister, Rehana. As he finishes his medical degree in London, Yousef’s life appears to be mapped out for him: become a doctor, marry a suitable girl of his parents’ choosing and, above all, make his family proud. Then Yousef meets fellow medical student Jess and he finds himself torn between two worlds . . . keeping each a secret from the other.
And as graduation day looms, Yousef’s mother informs him that she’s started looking for his wife.
