As another strange year winds to a close, we're delighted to see hints of normality beginning to return - not least of all the search for Operation Transformation leaders.

Preparing to return to screens in January 2022, the show is on the hunt for five brand new leaders who want to reset their lives in the new year, and inspire the nation while they're at it.

In 2022, Operation Transformation will celebrate 15 years on the air and host Kathryn Thomas will once again be at the helm to support the leaders.

Also returning to guide and encourage the leaders every step of the way is dietitian Aoife Hearne, general practitioner Dr. Sumi Dunne, fitness coach Karl Henry and principal clinical psychologist Dr. Eddie Murphy.
