Ian Kelly

Watch Programme 1 here...

29 year old Ian Kelly lives in Tallaght, Dublin. A construction worker and dad of two, Ian started smoking when he was only 12 years old and now smokes up to 20 a day. He's been steadily piling on the weight but with a busy 6 day a week job and a very young family to look after Ian finds it hard to make time to look after himself.

But an appearance on Tubridy Tonight shocked him into realizing that he had to change! Dr Mark Hamilton wants to help Ian increase his life expectancy but it's not an easy journey and Ian is frustrated by an initial lack of progress.

However, Dr Mark challenges him to literally take a "leap of faith" and trust that he will eventually reap the benefits of a better lifestyle.
