Katie Hopkins’ new chatshow features the former Apprentice candidate calling an audience member a “raging angry fat person in a pink dress” and telling columnist Liz Jones she looks “a bit weird”. So far, so stereotypically Hopkins. But Hopkins admits you do not hire her for her niceness and told the Guardian she sees the series as an antidote to laddish “massively aggressive” comedy panel shows mostly populated by men. Depending on your point of view If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World is either a groundbreaking chatshow that focuses on female issues or piranha television that may have some viewers phoning regulator Ofcom. Discovery’s female-focused channel TLC, where the show airs on Thursday, describes it as “slightly irreverent and cheeky”, but bills Hopkins as “Britain’s most hated woman” and a “professional provocateur”. Contrary to reports, Hopkins says guests were queuing up to appear on her programme, the premise of which is Hopkins, co-host Mark Dolan and guests trying to persuade the audience to vote to pass their pet rules such as having a “fat tax for fat... Those appearing include Germaine Greer and Edwina Currie. The first episode, which features Jones, comedian Paul Foot and The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins, makes ITV’s Loose Women look like a WI meeting. During the show Jones revisits an incident she mentioned in the Daily Mail in 2011 about how she tried to get herself pregnant by stealing her then boyfriend’s sperm. On If Katie Hopkins Ruled the World she goes into more detail, describing how she scooped out the contents of a condom used by her boyfriend and tried to push them up her vagina, explaining about the sperm: “Cos it can crawl, can’t it. ” to which... Later Hopkins tells Jones: “If I looked at you I wouldn’t think you look like you’ve made an effort, I’d think you look a bit weird. After a shocked Jones replies: “I look weird. ” Hopkins says: “That’s what I would think, just as an honest thing. I would look and think you look a bit weird, just cos of the maybe is it surgery or something. Is that unfair. The pair clash again after Hopkins says about fat people: “Ideally, stay in your house, lock your doors pull down your curtains and don’t get in contact with me” to which Jones tells her: “The last regime who used to measure people and measure...

Claire Richards became as well-known for her fluctuating weight as for being part of 90s pop group Steps . And while it looks as though the healthy size 10 star is finally happy with her body, there’s still one struggle she’s facing. Already parents to seven-year-old Charlie and five-year-old Daisy, Claire and her husband Reece Hill , 47, are desperate to Charlie and five-year-old Daisy, Claire and her husband Reece Hill, 47, are desperate to add to their brood. And despite Claire’s weight loss, the 37-year-old is finding it difficult to conceive baby No 3. A source says: ‘Claire’s still not pregnant, which is upsetting for her. She really thought that when she lost all the weight, that would be it – but it hasn’t happened for her yet. Speaking candidly in an interview earlier this year, Claire admitted: ‘The reason I’m this size is that I want another baby more than I want cake. ’ Claire, who lost an impressive 5st, revealed that doctors warned her she’d have to lose weight and keep it off if she wanted to fall pregnant again. And as her struggle continues, she hasn’t ruled out the helping hand of IVF. Claire said recently:‘I had no idea that being overweight was causing my fertility problems. We’ve talked about IVF – which I’m beginning to fear might be our only hope – but I’m not sure yet if I want to put us through what could be a lot of heartache for nothing. Claire decided to set the record straight about her dramatic weight loss on Loose Women last year, when she said: ‘My husband Reece and I decided that we want to try for another baby and me being overweight was causing us a lot of problems. I went to see the doctor and he advised that I lose weight. So that’s the one and only reason why I’ve done it this time. Claire added: ‘I’m not bringing out a fitness DVD, I’m not doing some miracle diet, I don’t have the secret to weight loss and staying slim – I clearly haven’t because I’ve been up and down so many times. The singer’s never been shy about discussing her body battles, and over the years has yo-yoed between a size 8 and a size 20. After leaving Steps, she was a slim 9 ½st. However, the weight gradually crept on, ending up at 16½st at her heaviest. Writing about her eating issues in her tell-all autobiography All Of Me: My Story , she confessed: ‘I have an emotional connection to food. Food for me is almost like. Source: www.nowmagazine.co.uk

Matt shared his fitness success story with me and it’s something everyone should read:. I started as a junior firefighter for my home town fire district. I quickly learned ALL the bad habits that come with the firehouse. It wasn’t until after I was married in 2006 that I started noticing my weight “sneaking” up on me. Before I knew it my wife was pregnant and we BOTH looked it. The fast food, the giant burgers, the soda all added into becoming OBESE. I noticed that even tying my shoes caused me to be out of breath. I went through the fire academy, ALWAYS being the fat, slow, out of breath guy thinking there was no way I could ever actually save someone if needed. I would suck down a tank faster than anyone else. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure by the age of 28. I thought to myself, how can I tell someone who’s having a heart attack to eat better and be healthy if I’m just as at risk as they are. Something had to change. It wasn’t until my son, (age 3 at the time) said something I’ll never forget. He used the “F word”. He told me that I was FAT and that I needed to go to the gym. It was then that I decided to make a change. A change for me, my family, and the people I was trying to protect. I saw an infomercial for INSANITY. (Yeah, that crazy workout that you do at home, by yourself, in front of your T. V. ) I thought to myself, I can do that… so I did. After about 2 months I had lost some weight, about 30 lbs to be exact. It was easier for me to move around, so I also started running. Learning how and what to eat, how to exercise, boosted my confidence and literally saved my own life. I no longer am diagnosed with high blood pressure and actually teach INSANITY LIVE at the local YMCA in my off time. I have gone on to do more Beachbody DVD programs and continue to lead a healthy lifestyle. I’ve obtained a full time job for the Kirkwood Fire Department and continue to spread healthy choices around the station. It’s nice being called the “fit guy” instead of the “fat guy”. Recently I came across a quote that sticks in my mind, it goes “You can never train too much for a job that can kill you” and you know what. That goes for killing yourself too. Photo courtesy of The.
