    Wednesday at 9pm on ITV.

    From what I could gather from the advert, Louise Redknapp tries to either get down to a size 0, or she follows the diet of the average person who's size o.

    Looks pretty interesting - Unfortunately I will be watching
    The Dresden Files, so if anyone watches this I would appreciate your comments about it. :)

    Yes, it's about Louise Redknapp and her excrutiating journey to get down to a size 0. Gripping viewing to see how awful getting a figure like stick insect Posh must be like, urgh! I can't imagine any of us would want to be a size that doesn't exist?! Does size 0 mean that you don't exist or that people can see right through you? Surely you have to be a number of some sort lol?!!!!!!!!!! ;)

    I read that it was really awful for Louise and she felt ill and depressed and really struggled with the restricted, stupid limited calories to get down to a size 0 and that's bearing in mind that she is tiny anyway!! :eek:

    I will watch this on Wednesday with interest and be glad I have no plans EVER of being a size that doesn't even register on the number scale. I mean, who lives in a house that is number 0?

    Apparently she only weighs 7st 10lbs anyway (is 5ft 4in, and size 8), and she got down to 6st 13lbs - although was very unhappy at that weight.

    ill be watching looks really good, i stsrted a thread ages ago about everyones veiws on size zero and i dont think its normal to be honest. i understand there are some lucky people out there who are naturally skinny but not that skinny, it looks dreadful and i would be happy at a 12 (only one dress size away) let alone a 0

    its American size 0, british size 4. Asda are now selling this size. I had a look at a top the other day and it would have fitted my daughter as a dress when she was about 6.

    I'll be watching out of morbid fascination and curiosity as there is no way I would ever want to be that thin. I don't think posh looks nice at all. Whenever I see pictures of her with Katie Holmes who is slim but healthy looking, I realise how revolting that size is! It's just a skeleton with a bit of skin stretched over urgh. That being said, I will enjoy the programme to remind myself of why I could never do it.

    I had no idea that they'd started selling those sizes over here! Although I'm not sure why I'm so shocked, as it has been such a big deal in celeb world for so long, it was only a matter of time before people over here started copying it... and there must be a demand for that size for shops to start stocking it.

    Here's some more information I've found:

    Louise is on This morning, this morning. May be worth watching if you can.

    I just saw Louise Redknapp on This Morning. Her journey to get to an American size zero is shocking. I shall definitely be watching the programme tomorrow night. I hope this documentary will bring about a turnaround in this ridiculous media bombardment of stupid, skinny celebrities. Well done Louise for being brave enough to do the documentary and show size zero for what it really is.

    She just said how awful it was for her. She cried a lot during the documentary. She said the food deprivation was terrible and also the worries to her health (infertility especially). The documentary tomorrow night features Dr Adam Carey (the handsome dr that used to be on Celebrity Fit Club).

    Don't forget to tune in tomorrow night ITV1 9pm. :)

    Thanks Janey

    I'll make a note to watch tomorrow night. Silly about this morning I just always assume anything worth watching will be on near the end of the show so they can get you to sit through the whole prog. Which I just can't!
