Granada for ITV1, 7 June to 11 September 2005 (7 episodes in 1 series)
Appears to be a prime-time outing of Fat Chance with a more does-what-it-says-on-the-tin title. Originally, it was a six-part series following three family clans for six months as they attempt to shed the pounds. The family to lose the most weight win a luxury safari holiday.
However, it was soooo successful it was pulled from the schedules after just one programme. There's gratitude. It was finally shown during a dead slot early on Sunday evenings.
ITV's target audience for the programme is defined as "broad". I think they're just being polite...
