About Series 6
Operation Transformation is back for its sixth series – can the five new leaders drastically change their eating and exercise habits?
Operation Transformation will return to our television screens twice a week in 2013, on Tuesday and Wednesday nights starting from the 8th of January. Once again, RTÉ Radio 1’s The John Murray Show is the radio home for the series and this year we are joining forces with digital station RTÉ Pulse for music to keep you motivated. There will be more interactive content available on www.rte.ie/ot and www.rte.ie/radio1/thejohnmurrayshow
With the help of presenter Kathryn Thomas, Karl Henry, fitness expert, Dr. Eva Orsmond, medical doctor and Dr. Eddie Murphy, a Principle Clinical Psychologist with the HSE the five leaders will drastically change their eating and exercise habits, and inspire listeners and viewers to follow them on their journey.
The final five leaders were chosen from hundreds of applicants. The final 19 applicants were invited to come to Santry Sportslink in November to be put through their paces and were assessed on their physical and emotional suitability for the television series.
The five leaders are: 1) Charlotte O’ Connell (23) from Cavan 2) Gavin Walker (35), Dublin 3) Deirdre Hosford (31) from Cork 4) Greg Starr (36) from Co. Tipperary 5) Monica Percy (44)from Carlow
