Kate Garraway is to present a new show in which overweight people undergo intense physical challenges to lose weight.
Contestants on The Biggest Loser will live and train together, following punishing regimes laid down by professional trainers.
The show will see contestants battling to lose most weight, with eliminations for those who are unsuccessful.
Kate said: “Every contestant has a different reason for wanting to take part, some are longing to have a baby, but their weight is preventing them, some are looking for love and others have been told that if they don’t shed the pounds they could die, so for them the show really is a last chance, literally a matter of life and death.
“I have been so moved and often completely inspired by many of the contestant’s stories and I know people watching at home will be gripped too.”
The Programme is due to air on ITV1 in the spring.
