The Biggest Loser
The long-running weight-loss series, The Biggest Loser, finally comes to ITV prime-time on Monday, this time with Davina McCall replacing Kate Garraway as presenter. From Big Brother, to Got to Dance, to The Biggest Loser, Davina really is doing the reality rounds.
The reality TV queen seems a fitting anchor for the emotional roller-coaster that is TBL. If you have seen and liked it before, there’s nothing new here. However, if you’ve never caught the previous UK, US or Australian versions, then just imagine Big Brother but with lots of ‘psychological and emotional breakthroughs’ and shouting from the personal trainers. As cheesy as it sounds, you may just find that this particular reality show tugs unexpectedly at the heart strings.
