New on BBC Lifestyle in November 2008:

Eataholics 2
Premiere date: Thursday, 6 November 2008 at 21h20


Nutritionist Natalie Savona and clinical psychologist Stephen Briers investigate people with strange eating disorders and junk food obsessions for a second season of Eataholics.

Can these strange eating habits be overcome with the introduction of healthier, more varied diets? Or will these fussy eaters quake at the site of vegetables and run back to their comfort foods?

As a budding chef, how could Nat Holland not be interested in eating a variety of food? Yet, somehow she survives on a diet of burnt sausages. Worse still, head chef Andrew Forster has managed to make a living by getting others to sample his food, because all he can stomach is biscuits.

Joanne Adams has an obsession with potatoes, Helen Tree can’t get enough of plain pasta, and Jo Stappard could eat bread till she bursts. How have these people managed to survive on such minimal diets?

With their eating habits affecting their health and putting a strain on personal relationships, the programme’s subjects attempt to vary their diets.

What Not To Wear 7
Premiere date: Tuesday, 11 November 2008 at 21h20


Lisa Butcher and Mica Paris meet women and men who suffer from some serious wardrobe malfunctions in a new seventh season of What Not To Wear.

These two fashion-conscious, body-aware ladies have an unerring eye for style and don’t hold back when making their opinions known.

They take self-confessed walking fashion disasters under their wings and go to work on all aspects of their subject’s wardrobes. It’s up to Lisa and Mica to adorn them with figure-flattering garments, which show off the good bits and hide the bad.

Throughout the series, they focus closely on the human form and offer fashion tips to suit all shapes and sizes.

By the end of each episode, the sometimes not-so-willing volunteers are transformed beyond recognition, their newfound confidence evident in their new attire. But can the popular style duo convince their subjects to continue to dress to impress by embracing their new looks and banishing their old, tired clothes permanently?

Jamie's Great Italian Escape
Premiere date: Tuesday, 18 November 2008 at 19h00


In a clapped-out camper van, Jamie Oliver sets off on a journey around Italy to re-discover the country that inspired his love of food, and to sample some of its gastronomic delights along the way.

Jamie’s journey takes him off the beaten track to discover the real Italy and the people that make it what it is. He ventures into the busy night markets of Palermo to track down the tastiest ingredients Sicily has to offer, enters a pasta-making competition in the region of Le Marche, and channels his enthusiasm for food into cooking for the Benedictine community north of Rome.

After years of campaigning for healthier school dinners for children and fighting the junk food invasion, Jamie’s Great Italian Escape serves as an opportunity for Jamie to get back to doing what he does best - cooking.
