By Lina Das. They are also the qualities that helped her rise to success in her 20s when she fronted a series of compelling TV documentaries on topics as diverse as polygamy and extreme dieting for which she slimmed down from a size 12 to an eight. Although she went through a difficult patch in her television career when she moved to Los Angeles nine years ago of which more later , she has since reinvented herself as an author. The Cows is a terrifically fun read, centring on three young women — Tara, a documentary maker and single mum, Cam, a successful lifestyle blogger, and Stella, a young woman who has lost both her twin sister and mother to cancer — whose lives eventually intersect. I gave Tara a young child because I had to put the feelings I was experiencing in the book. It was incredible. After moving to California, she made the four-part series Dawn Porter: Extreme Wife , which explored subjects such as mail-order brides and polygamy. I had a nice flat, but it was just me and my cat. LA is a town where you have to go out and find friends, but I was waiting for everything to come to me.

By the time O’Porter’s internal geyser burst, she was already a household name in her native Britain, having made dozens of quirky first-person television documentaries on topics ranging from lesbianism to breast cancer. She had also, by that time, been called everything from an “arsehole” to “like Louis Theroux if he’d had 90 per cent of his IQ replaced with cupcake frosting”. O’Porter responded to that last “low blow” by writing that exposing and celebrating her imperfect flesh had been part of her examination of the societal pressure for women to look perfect and telling it to “piss off”.

In Dawn presented a BBC3 series of five documentary films, exploring attitudes to nudity, lesbianism, dating and pregnancy and childbirth.
