Jordan Banjo and Dr Sara Kayat will host new Channel 4 health and weight loss pilot, Lose Weight Like Me.
Lose Weight Like Me will follow two people who want to drastically change their lifestyle, and they will be introduced to four ‘health heroes’, who are ordinary members of the public who have each lost up to 200lbs through a safe and maintainable weight loss programme of a good diet and practical exercise routine.
The four ‘health heroes’ will be in the studio hiding behind pictures of their former selves and will only be revealed if they get chosen to be a mentor by one of the two participants.
The participants will follow the tried and tested weight loss plan of their mentor, which has been approved by a leading dietician, and after eight weeks will share their transformation with Banjo and Dr Kayat.
Banjo completely understands what the participants are going through as he previously revamped his own lifestyle and lost over ten stone.
Dr Kayat will help the participants chose the right plans that will suit their particular needs and help them make a permanent change to a healthier lifestyle.
Deputy Head of Features & Formats at Channel 4, Sean Doyle, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Jordan and Dr Sara to the Channel 4 Features Family. As someone who has made dramatic changes to his own health, we are thrilled to have Jordan Banjo at the helm of this pilot.”
Lose Weight Like Me will air on Channel 4 in 2021.
