Being overweight is already a national epidemic. And now it's just as much of a problem for the young as it is for grown ups.
So this new year we want to help whole families with their weight loss.
We’re looking for families; mums, dads, kids or single parents, who are desperate to beat the bulge.
Along with our experts and some star faces on the teaching panel, we’ll be sending families on a school trip like no other, for some healthy homework and extra curricular weight loss.
We'll see if families who gain together can lose together, and be ready for a healthier 2013.
Please send us an email telling us why you think you and your family should be considered for our Fight The Fat School.
We've found the first of our families but are now looking for more to take part! The closing date is noon on Friday 14th December. Terms and conditions at itv.com/terms
Selected families will be required to spend an intense, week-long weight loss course at our residential filming location in early January 2013, where they will be filmed continuously across the week. There will also be various filming dates in December and up until the end of March 2013.
Selected candidates will need to grant consent to various checks by our experts which may include health checks, psychology tests andcounselling assessments. They will also need to sign a contributor agreement.
