The Weight Is Over

by | 4th, August 2003

‘WITH all the cooking programmes on TV at the moment, it was only a matter of time before we were given a show devoted entirely to dieting. And here it is – the imaginatively titled Do Or Diet.

It could, of course, have been called Diet Another Day, Diet Hard (With A Vengeance), To Diet For, Live And Let Diet or any one of a thousand other bad puns.

Presented by (a fully-clothed) Gail Porter, Jay Hunt and Jamie Baird, the show tries to find ways to lose weight that don’t involve complete starvation, drinking revolting milkshakes or watching fewer cookery programmes.

First guinea pig is Bobbi Smedley, who must lose enough weight to fit into her designer wedding dress in three months’ time. The signs are looking bad – she might even have to take some exercise.

Alternatively, she could just turn over to ITV1 and catch Trisha, whose theme this morning is gluttony. As, we presume, in gluttons for punishment.
