Who Are You Calling Fat? – BBC2

Big, Plus-Size, Obese – Who Are You Calling Fat? takes a group of larger sized people and asks them what they think about their physiques

In Who Are You Calling Fat?, nine plus-size people move in together to share their experiences about being overweight (Monday, 9pm, see our TV Guide for full details).

Among them is fat-positive activist Victoria, 34. She has what she likes to call a “bigger body”, eats “intuitively” and loves the way she looks.

Jack has reversed his Type-2 diabetes through exercise, but admits he struggles with diets, and Del reveals he had surgery in order to shed 10-stone.
