Kathryn Thomas, Karl Henry, fitness expert, Dr. Eva Orsmond, and Dr. Eddie Murphy, and five leaders return to our screens tonight for not one but two shows a week. On tonight's show, we meet the 19 hopefuls who made it to Sportslink in Santry for a day of rigorous assessment. Kathryn will then unveil our first two leaders - Deirdre and Gavin, and Operation Transformation travels to Harvard University to meet Dublin scientist Dr. Lydia Lynch whose groundbreaking research made headlines worldwide when she showed the link between obesity and cancer. We also meet running man John Casey who, after taking part in our 5K Fun Run in the Phoenix Park last year, has now gone on to take part in the Iron Man in Galway and has lost a total of 10 stone.
Operation Transformation. RTE1. 8.30pm
