Maria Duffy

Presented by Dr Mark Hamilton. Tonight's programme features Maria Duffy a 24-year-old junk-food lover who smokes and is very unfit.

Dr Mark is joined by a team of experts who encourage Maria to completely change her lifestyle and to increase her life expectancy.

She gets dietary advice from top nutritionist Margot Brennan, styling advice from Anne Marie Boland and tries hip-hop dance and ladies football for the first time.
