Ever dream of having the booty of Beyonce, or the curves of Katy Perry? For the ladies taking part in brand new factual entertainment series BIGGER THAN BRITNEY, their dream is about to get one step closer to reality.

BIGGER THAN BRITNEY is a brand new weight loss series – with a BIG difference!

Premiering January 4th, 9pm on Sky Living, the series looks at ordinary British women who are fed up with staring at pictures of their favourite music icons and wishing they looked like them – it’s time to take some action!. Each episode will focus on a different celebrity as some of their most fervent but overweight fans aspire to style themselves as, and follow the intimate lifestyles of their music idols. The series will then document the trials and tribulations of the hopefuls over eight tough weeks as they attempt to slim down to look as much like their idols as possible, resulting in the makeover of all makeovers.

Every week will feature a different celebrity lifestyle from stars including Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Lady GaGa, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Cheryl Cole. The ladies taking part will undergo a strict diet and exercise regime as preferred by their chosen celebrity and see how successful they really are in an attempt to shift those pounds and kick-start their new year plan to get the body they’ve desired for so long.

Examining the real truth behind these extreme lifestyles, the series will look at how an ordinary person can achieve the results without the bank balance of a superstar. Using similar slimming and keep-fit techniques as the stars, together with help from a panel of celebrity experts, chorographers, nutritionists and coaches – many of whom have worked with the stars themselves, each episode will document the true effect on and reactions from the lookalikes to their new regimes.

This team of experts, which include renowned casting director Mark Summers, and look-a-like agent Paul L Martin, will follow the contenders during their efforts, monitoring and judging their progress over eight weeks of tough dedication and ultimate will-power. At stake for the women who most effectively transforms herself into her idol will be a chance to get on the books of, and be represented by a top talent agency and impersonate their celebrity idols for real.
