Fat Chance!

Northern Ireland families needed now to star in new TV Health show

Does your family have the wrong diet and wrong attitude? Do you do enough exercise? Do you shop badly and can’t cook? If the answer to these questions is ‘Yes’, don’t worry, as help is on the way.

A new BBC NI television series is giving you the chance to help change your family’s life forever.

Tern Television is creating a new television series for BBC Northern Ireland called Fat Chance. We are looking for three families (mums, dads and children) with weight issues to take part in an intensive, expert-led weight loss programme this summer which will take stock of their health issues and give them a real chance to change their lives forever.

In this series, the three families will spend one week in a secret location where some of the nation’s best experts in Nutrition, Health, Psychotherapy and Fitness will help set them on the road to recovery. In a course of specialist treatments they will be given the chance to change. Then in the following weeks, they will be sent home to put what they’ve learnt to the test.

We’re looking for outgoing families with weight issues that are making them unhappy and unhealthy but who most of all want the chance to change.

If you and your family are Overweight and potentially putting yourselves at increased risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease and a variety of Cancers, we want to hear from you. We want people who are willing to share their stories with the nation to ultimately show us all how we can tackle our growing obesity problem.

The treatment programmes our families will undergo would normally cost thousands of pounds, but for the people who take part in the show it will be completely free.

For further information on how to take part, contact the Fat Chance team, Peter or Gohir at fatchance@terntv.com
