New reality TV series to be filmed on Berrow beach

A new reality TV series for satellite channel Living TV is to be filmed on Berrow Beach next week, we can reveal.

The Biggest Loser on Living TVTV production company Shine Productions has picked our area to film an episode of The Biggest Loser, a programme described by its makers as "a weight-loss show where people attempt to lose at least three stone."

The spokesman added: "It's a bit like ITV's Fit Club, but more fun and exciting."

The episode will be filmed on Friday July 15th at Berrow from around 10am - and the show will be broadcast on Living TV during October this year.

A red team and a blue team will compete on the beach by pulling a traditional ice cream van, aiming to reach
a finish line with chequered flags, lines and cones as quickly as possible.

A US version of The Biggest Loser has already been shown in America and was such a hit that a second series is being made.

Living TV hopes to repeat the success in the UK with its own spin-off which will be a 10-episode series screened this autumn.

The UK show is being produced by John Silver who was previously responsible for popular TV series such as Jamie's Kitchen, Property Ladder, Your Money or Your Life, Dinner Party Inspectors and Other People's Houses.
