Supersize vs Superskinny

Series 5 - Episode 9

About this programme

9/10. Christian Jessen revisits three former participants to discover whether their experiences on the show led them to change their lives for the better, or if they have lapsed into their old eating habits. Underweight Josh Evans frequently skipped meals, while 21st Louise Hayes received a shock when she met Texan Karen Ferguson, whose weight problems had forced her to move into a care home. Meanwhile, Vicki Smith's poor eating habits had caused her weight to drop below seven stone, but a visit to Christian's malnutrition gallery led her to realise how an inadequate diet could seriously damage her health.
