Katie Hopkins: My Fat Story
Premieres Friday 2nd January, 9.00pm
Outspoken TV personality, Katie Hopkins has hit the headlines for her controversial views on obesity; insisting that fat people are lazy, saying that she would not employ someone who is overweight, and claiming that losing weight is easy. Earlier this year Katie hit the headlines again revealing her new three stone heavier figure. Sick of hearing people's excuses for being overweight and justifying Britain's obesity crisis, Katie had decided to prove her argument by piling on the pounds to experience being weight, before attempting to lose it again by simply eating less and moving more. This two-part special exclusively follows Katie through every step of her project, as she struggles to put the weight on and deal with her increasing size, and then as she loses the weight. Will she prove her point or will she have to eat her own words?
Probably not. It's different in the UK right now, the National Health System is socialised medicine, and the patients have their weight-loss surgeries done "on the system" sometimes waiting a long time for treatment — and people may feel differently about the care being done on the UK's dime.
I suppose I'd have to watch it, and it's meant to be inflammatory. I mean — "FAT PEOPLE ARE LAZY."
Really. Throw that out there and watch the reaction. BAIT. FLAME. RAWR.
Would you watch? What do you think?
