Series overview

 

Fronted by Ranvir Singh, Eat Shop Save returns for a new four-part series setting families an eight-week challenge to eat better, get fitter and save money.

 

As both budgets and waistbands get tighter, Ranvir and her team of experts - chef and nutritionist Dale Pinnock, savvy shopper Kate Hardcastle MBE and fitness consultant Tom Pitfield - aim to help families improve their diets, their lifestyles and their finances.

 

Episode 1

 

In the first episode, Ranvir and her experts meet the Laherty family from Bury in Greater Manchester, aiming to help them to ditch their regular takeaway run and get an expensive chocolate habit under control.

 

The other families keen to kick their unhealthy habits are super spenders the Todds from Sunderland; new parents the Vastas from Bolton, whose weight has become a serious health concern; and the Thomas family from Northamptonshire, who eat takeaways virtually every night. 

 

This time around the families will also meet former Eat, Shop, Save champions who have significantly transformed their lives after taking part in previous series.

 

At a time of rising inflation, with families feeling burned out, when weekly grocery budgets are being stretched by high prices at the checkouts, and with the UK being the most overweight country in Western Europe, Ranvir and her team of experts meet a new family each week, who are facing a range of issues.

 

In each half-hour episode, Ranvir sets the families an eight-week challenge, with the experts on hand to offer tips along the way - helping them to eat better, get fitter, shop savvy and ultimately save money.
