Ah no, I'd feel terrible if she read it here...maybe it's just me that thinks she looks bigger now than at the finale.
Just listening to the John Murray show now, Ronan Scully is great, I've seen him at races...

Fair enough I don't think this years group are as motivated as in previous years. It doesn't feel like there's any longevity in this programme in that it's filmed over a v short period of time and then people return to their normal lives andslip back intonbsd habits!

The guys from last year mentioned that it was an 8 week series - this year's is only 6 weeks.... have they started dumbing it down - and fatally shortening it - lately? Six weeks is not a long time in the whole weight-loss/life-transformation game.

ETA - anyone remember how long it was back in Gerry's day? IMO it was 100% his gig, not the same since he's gone.

Grace is sultry!

Natalie's attitude is really starting to get to me though and I'm not sure exactly what it is but when it looked like * (and mind you it is only tv she could be coming off completely differently) she was trying to see if she was going to be allowed to leave the boot camp challanges, I know its difficult and fair play for her finishing them and I say her focus will get better its early days, but there's still something and I can't put my finger on it.

I don't watch this but caught some blurb aboout it on the radio.
Why do they give the weight in stones and pounds?

Surely, given the age profile of the candidates, we've all moved to metric at this stage. Weight should be expressed in kilograms.

Is it the case that eleven stone seems smaller than sixty nine point eight five kilos?

My weight & height will always be stones and feet/inches. Everything else is metric

I think she's lazy! How did they let their back garden get into such a state???

The production of this show is cheesetastic.

Jesus, Dr. Eva got out of the wrong side of the bed for poor Natalie....

Did anyone just hear Dr. Orsmond announce that Natalie approached her on Saturday to discuss her constipation?

It was clear that Natalie did not want it mentioned on national TV as she tried to interrupt her and even beside that Natalie, presumably, approached her as a doctor.

Aside from the obvious violation of her trust is that not a violation of doctor/patient confidentiality?

Can she, as a doctor, really go on TV and announce that someone approached her about a private issue and then proceed to discuss that issue?

Either way: what a bitch.

Re: Natalie's small weight loss. Would they not take into account that muscle is being formed by all the exercise which might be offsetting the fat lost? Also, TOTM and constipation would very likely affect things too. Weight-loss doesn't always follow hard science.

She's not exactly pumping iron. She's going for walks and gentle runs. That's not going to turn fat into muscle.
