Faddy foods, slimming products, diet surgery and extreme weight loss regimes, the UK has gone diet mad! But alongside every new celeb diet launch we're continually bombarded with confusing food scares and health warnings about the serious dangers of being superslim, so it's no wonder our relationship with food is becoming increasingly dysfunctional. Each hour-long programme, presented by Dr Christian Jessen, will feature a short diet swap between two contributors – all of whom have been medically assessed prior to filming – with wildly contrasting eating habits. The show will see a superskinny undereater swap diet and lifestyle with an overweight overeater. The aim of the five day swap is to make them realise they both have a dysfunctional relationship with food – that eating too much is just as bad as undereating. The swap will kick start a whole new regime of balanced and healthy eating that is meant to re-educate them and transform their relationship with food and weight. Watch out also for Anna Richardson trying out some faddy and celeb dieting and see if Gillian McKeith can win her campaign to reduce the size of the nation's bums.

S01E01 Tatiana Moxey vs Sandra Andrew 22/01/2008 At just 6 stone 10lbs, 19-year-old Tatiana Moxey is extremely underweight and desperate for people to stop asking her if she's got an eating disorder. Weighing in at 23½ stone, jazz singer Sandra Andrew is a late-night food lover, enjoying home-cooked West Indian food through the day before feasting on junk food all night long. In the feeding clinic, under the supervision of Dr Christian Jessen, Tatiana and Sandra take part in an extreme diet swap to fatten up skinny Tatiana and slim down overweight Sandra. Meanwhile, size 14 journalist Anna Richardson immerses herself into the world of serial dieters and attempts to drop a dress size or two by following their faddy diets and lifestyle regimes. This week she looks behind the glamorous façade of modelling and exposes the body-abusing methods some models use to stay skinny as she embarks on an extreme apple-only 'model' diet. And it's no wonder we're obsessed with the size of our bottoms: Britain has the biggest bums in Europe; so Gillian McKeith is on a nationwide campaign to reduce the size of our rears. And with the help of 101 women, the latest treatments, hi-tech gadgets and machinery that claim to achieve a perfect rear are put through their paces. This week a group of Nottinghamshire lasses are lassoed to horse-riding simulators to gee up their chances of success. And if you wise up to calorie content you can still indulge without the bulge. Gillian McKeith heads to Billingsgate Market to find out if the fishmongers of London know a high-calorie breakfast when they see one.

The participants' attitudes towards food couldn't be more different, but they are both putting their health in danger. Amy-Jo may look perfect on the outside but her extreme exercise regime and diet, which restricts carbs, could lead to her body crumbling inside. To shock her into a new way of eating, she must gorge on the gigantic meals and colossal snacks of the biggest supersize of the series. Meanwhile Andy must learn to survive on the limited calorie intake of Amy-Jo. The aim is for them both to learn how they are affecting their bodies Journalist Anna Richardson tries another extreme diet, taking the star-studded route to dropping a dress size: living on tiny jars of baby food.

S01E04 Stefan Ginesi vs Elizabeth Young 12/02/2008 Tipping the scales at just over six stones, 41-year-old Elizabeth Young thinks she's found the elixir to eternal youth: an extremely disciplined diet. She exists on a radical diet of Brazil nuts, rice, garlic and not much else. In the feeding clinic, Dr Christian Jessen, begs to differ and has the challenge of persuading her that her lack of eating is doing the exact opposite; it's prematurely ageing her. Dr Jessen's prescription is a short, sharp shock, a week of eating the food of 34 stone 9lbs supersized milkman Stefan Ginesi, the fattest contributor of the series. The Northern Irish 'carb junkie' lives on potatoes and Irish stew and is keen to lose weight to start dating and get involved in a relationship. Into the fourth week of her diet, journalist Anna Richardson goes nil by mouth when she swaps food for diet pills.

And more alarmingly she encounters two young pill poppers whose cocktail of diet pills is potentially seriously damaging their health.

Short on time and money, his weight has plummeted to just 8 stone 5lbs, two and a half stone underweight, which is no great surprise because Kev lives on a diet of coffee and cigarettes for breakfast, pre-packed sandwiches for lunch and a liquid dinner of orange juices. Meanwhile, supersized super-eater Julie Mead from Essex weighs in at 26 stone 6lbs. Julie hopes some motherly love will help fatten Kev up while she learns to curb her excessive food consumption.

Gillian offers some low-calorie alternatives.
S01E06 Rosemarie Palmer vs Jenette Nolan 26/02/2008 In the feeding clinic this week with Dr Christian Jessen are two women at opposite ends of the weight spectrum but with one thing in common: they both want to look wonderful in their wedding dresses. Wafer-thin Jenette Nolan from Lancashire refuses to marry her husband until she can fill her wedding dress but she's got a long way to go. Weighing just 6 stone 8lbs, she's two stone underweight.

Tired and exhausted he lives on a diet of caffeine pills supplemented by stodgy cakes and snacks despite holding down the physically demanding job of a plasterer. Dr Christian Jessen decides to hit him where it will hurt most with a stiff warning about his manhood. His diet swap partner Tracy Morgan from Wales has a mouth that's constantly on the move. If she's not talking at the call centre where she works she's snacking, just like Alex, but the trouble is she's snacking before, after and in between her already substantial daily meals which has caused her weight to soar to nearly 20 stone. Deprived of the meals and forced to eat just Alex's snacks she soon realises where she's going wrong. Journalist Anna Richardson meets Isabelle Caro, the actress who unwittingly found herself a worldwide celebrity as the star of a media campaign to highlight the shocking affects of anorexia.

His continuous consumption of greasy mountains of food has left him weighing 22 stone 3lbs.

James weighs in at over 24 stone six and is terrified that his steady weight gain will end up giving him a heart attack and prevent him seeing his kids grow up. Thirty-one-year-old credit controller Modasser is at the opposite end of the scales at a tiny eight stone three. He skips meals and rarely finishes dinner. James receives a 32 stone wake-up call from America in the form of Mike Eak from Florida.
