We have plenty of telly to look forward to in the new year.
Of course, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the news of Operation Transformation’s return.
Kathryn Thomas told VIP Magazine earlier this year that she was busy filming the series, so we knew that it was just around the corner.
Now we know the date that OpTrans will be back on our screen.
The series will return on Wednesday 4th January 2023 at 9:30pm with five remarkable leaders.
And they are giving it a refreshed visual identity and some new features as it continues to inspire audiences to live a longer, healthier, happier life for its 17th season.
The leaders will have a weekly health check-in where 14 health indicators, will be monitored. These include Upper Body Strength, Balance, Lower Body Strength and Cardiovascular adding to the usual Hydration, Blood Pressure, Metabolic Age, Weight, General Health, Nutrition, Movement, among others.
In another update, the new series will check in with previous leaders about their experiences since taking part in the show and how life has been since they appeared on the show.
Last year’s Operation Transformation leader Katie Jones will host the brand-new Operation Transformation podcast. We can’t wait to listen.
The show is also set to welcome new dietitian Sophie Pratt. She is a CORU registered dietitian and a member of the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Sophie joins Dr Sumi Dunne, Dr Eddie Murphy and Karl Henry on our OT panel of experts for 2023.
Operation Transformation airs Wednesday 4th January at 9:30pm on RTÉ One
