Episode 4 - Reverend Brian Statham (Jan 31st 2006, at 8:00 on C4)
This week, Reverend Brian Statham from Cheshire is in for a McKeith makeover. At 50, 5’6’’ Brian weighs 16 ½ stone and has already had one heart attack, and with a history of heart disease in his family, knows he is heading for another if he doesn’t change his ways soon.
Despite the warnings, Brian feeds himself as if he is feeding the five thousand. He can’t say no, and to make matters worse, he drives everywhere. Brian lacks energy, has sleepless nights and suffers from headaches.
Gillian is not impressed by what Brian’s parishioners have told her and is here to give him a chance to turn his life around. She starts by presenting him with all the food he has eaten in a week. His bad food table includes 36 slices of toast and marmalade, two portions fish & chips with mushy peas, five chocolate bars, 12 glasses of red wine and 40 cups of tea with milk & sugar.
