Fat Pets: Slimmer of the Year is a one off week of shows for ITV Daytime featuring the PDSA’s Pet Fit Club’s annual competition. In an exciting week long run meet the dogs, cats and rabbits who have spent the last six months battling the bulge to get back to a fighting fit weight.
 
The endearing but portly pets featured include Bruce the boxer who once tipped the scales at over eight stone; Snowball the giant Rabbit;  cheeky Daisy the Bulldog who needed ham bribes to use her treadmill and Barney the Jack Russell whose idea of a walk was hopping on his owner's mobility scooter.
 
Alongside crowning this year’s winner, cameras will also meet the other more exotic animals who are still tipping the scales in the wrong direction; from an overweight monkey to massive micro-pigs.
 
As a nation of animal obsessives; during this week-long event, this series will meet some of the funniest, fattest and entertaining pets in Britain.
 
Continues throughout the week at 4pm on ITV
