RTÉ's second series of Celebrity Operation Transformation returns to your screens this September.
Award winning Chef, Broadcaster and Columnist Gary O'Hanlon from Viewmount House will be one of the leaders.
Gary is 39-years-old and weighs 15st. He spends all his time in the kitchen but despite this, he could go an entire day without eating a proper meal. Instead, he finds himself snacking on fizzy drinks and jellies. While Gary used to be an active gym member, working on his feet has left him with joint and back pain.
Gary hopes to re-discover his love for sport and exercise.
