They are struggling to hold on to their Operation Transformation leaders on the show this year, having already lost Dubliner Dan Kennedy due to an illness, now it looks like Mayo man John Conmy may leave the show too.
After losing 12 pounds in his first week, John - this year's heaviest leader - has struggled to meet his targets since and is now getting pretty fed up of the whole process. Last week, he clashed with the show's dietician Aoife Hearne where she told the father-of-one that she doesn’t believe he is following the plan.
"I don’t believe there has been any change, to be honest," Aoife said. "There are people round the country who are looking up to you as their leader and if I was sitting at home watching you now, I’d be like ‘what is he doing, like seriously, what is he doing?"."
His frustration comes to a head in tonight's show where he seriously considers dropping out of the show altogether saying; “I didn’t make my target this week, so I am pretty pissed about that. I am pissed about the experts saying I am not putting in the work. This was supposed to be an adventure, a journey. This was supposed to be ‘get yourself in shape’ and all that’s coming out of it is just, honest to God, negativity”.
“This craic of going to Dublin and getting shouted at, I don’t know,” he says, “I have never, ever experienced anything like it”.
Later telling Katheryn Thomas; “Coming down from Dublin the last day, I don’t want to feel like that again. I didn’t want to go back there again. I am frustrated and kind of mad that I am not training."
Adding; "I don’t know, I have followers and I feel fiercely loyal to them but I have just got kicked in the stones three weeks in a row."
