Hugh’s new series on the reasons for the obesity epidemic in Britain’s Fat Fight.

With two thirds of Brits now overweight, foodie Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is on a mission to find out what can be done to stop this deadly trend.

From the big brands who say their products are healthy but are packed with sugar, to the shops where tempting chocolates are at the checkout, no sweet stone is left unturned.

And if that wasn’t a big enough challenge, Hugh is also trying to get all the good people of Newcastle to lose weight and get fit.

Watch out for Geordie local Julie, who tells the presenter a thing or two about engaging the whole town, not just people who have money to spend in the affluent city centre.

Please note this programme airs at 10.45pm on Scotland.
