Series 3 Episode 6
8PM Wed 16 April 2014

Factory night-shift manager Glyn has battled with his weight for over 10 years. His wife Louise is a chef and believes she and Glyn eat healthily.

Glyn's mum Sue is also perplexed by her fluctuating dress size. The cameras discover a diet featuring stomach-stretching sausage sarnies and oil drenched salads.

Psychologist Dr David tests the theory that boozing is a trigger for overeating at a wine tasting event where half the connoisseurs are served alcoholic wines and the other half the non-alcoholic version.
