    Hi
    I saw this advertised Gillian is a bit strict and can be really insulting and can upset some of the people who go on the programme .
    But like to watch the slimmers

    But that's what makes people watch it - a bit like when Trinny and Susannah were at their height. People weren't watching for the fashion advice, but to hear how nasty they were to people!

    Oooooh, I really enjoyed the programme. Sometimes shock tactics work. Be cruel to be kind and all that. :) And all that fresh produce looked delicious!!!

    :D I totally agree, me and the wife watched it last night night, sometimes shock tactics achieve the best results, i still think that Gillian needs a good seeing to by a man so she is not so nasty, i think she is just frustrated, :eek:

    My god, what a horrible premise.

    Hey Allan, I think you might be right heehee!! :eek:;);):D

    Her tactics are meant to make people wake up to the way they are abusing their bodies. If they don't start looking after their health they will die. Sometimes people turn into ostriches and bury their heads in the sand. Yes, Gillian is extreme, but her message is sound.

    i can never tell whether she is a punch in the face with the truth fist or someone insensitive and cruel to already wounded personalities for 'entertainment'

    But TV has become abit like that in general. I watch the show but wouldnt watch this as it causes a few problems, diet obsession and what becomes of the 'losers' do they feel like fat pigs on their wedding day, plus 8 weeks isnt that long a time

    again i didnt see so maybe this has been answered.
