Chris McElligott blew us all away with his shock weight loss of 10.5 lbs this week. We were so impressed with the football fanatics dedication to the plan that we presumed all the leaders would follow suit. Unfortunately, twenty-two-year-old Maireád Redmond proved to be resistant to the plan and the experts were none too impressed. Dietitian Aoife Hearne spoke frankly to Maireád saying,

“Watching you this week, it was a little infuriating for me. I really didn’t feel you were embracing the plan and I felt you thought Operation Transformation was a magic wand and that you didn’t really have to do anything except just show up.”

Maireád faced more problems at home when her brother criticized her for changing up her set meal plan. Sadly, our youngest OpTrans leader failed to take the criticism well and her enthusiasm for the show seems to be on the decline.

Part-time hairdresser and mum, Marie Grace, is fighting fit this week. The thirty-two-year-old is determined to make a new life for herself so that her two daughters will grow up with a fit and healthy mum in the coming years. Not only is Marie Grace attempting to improve her diet and exercise but she is on a mission to quit the cigarettes and on last night's episode we saw her smoke her last.

Marie's focus and will power has been really impressive and the experts have taken note. Dr Ciara Kelly praised the leader saying:

“You deserve an ‘A’ for effort. We can see how much effort you put into your food plan, in to your exercise and you showed real commitment this week so well done. I thought it was heartbreaking watching you watch yourself on the television. Miscarriage and still birth is a silent grief that many women around the country have experienced and very rarely talk about and you sharing that publicly with people will have touched more hearts than you realise.”

The legendary Marty Morrissey joined 'Marty Squad' colleague and Celebrity Operation Transformation leader Brenda Donohue for Karl Henry's ad break challenge. As always, Marty was a great sport but his competitive nature kicked in when he gave poor Brenda a side tackle.
