Dr Michael Mosley's final interview before his tragic death has been released by the BBC.

The TV doctor went missing on holiday on the Greek island Symi after setting off on a walk to a mountainous area on 5 June.

His body was found last week in the area of Ayia Marina.

Below is his last ever interview:

The 67-year-old was spotted by CCTV at a grey-stoned house nearby the harbour after leaving his wife, Dr Clare Bailey Mosley, on Agios Nikolaos beach at 13.30 local time on 5 June.

Dr Bailey alerted officials at around 7.30pm that her husband still hadn't returned from his walk.

Tragically, last Sunday (9 June), Mosley's body was discovered in a rocky area beside Agia Marina on Symi.

In an emotional statement, Dr Bailey confirmed the news.

She said: "Michael was an adventurous man, it's part of what made him so special. We are so grateful to the extraordinary people on Symi who have worked tirelessly to help find him. Some of these people on the island, who hadn't even heard of Michael, worked from dawn till dusk unasked.

"We're also very grateful to the press who have dealt with us with great respect."

In his last ever interview on 25 May, the health advocate chatted to psychologist Paul Bloom at the Hay Festival during a special episode of How to Live a Good Life.

As the pair discussed a wide range of health-related topics, Mosley raised the importance of having a cold shower in the mornings, saying 'I know I'll feel better afterwards'.

He told the audience 'it's always followed by a lot of screaming'.

"I mean to do it, and I have long conversations with my wife about it, but somehow we never get round to it," he confessed.

Also in the episode, Mosley opened up about the one of the 'scarier experiments' he had done, which is a personality test.

"I was stuck in a brain scanner and showed images of someone being hit with a ruler and then they hit me with a ruler," he explained.

He joked that 'according to this test, I am a bit of a psychopath'.

Prof Bloom added: "If you're worried you're a psychopath, you're not a psychopath."

Mosley worked with the BBC for over 30 years and is known for making numerous appearances on The One Show.

In 2021, he presented Lose a Stone in 21 Days for Channel 4, promoting what he called a healthy lifestyle, consisting of intermittent fasting and a keto diet.
