Yvette Fielding and her dedicated team of paranormal investigators - including Watson, the team's dog - return for an all-new and exclusive sixth series of the country's most popular ghost-hunting show.
Rowleys House: The team head to the centre of Shrewsbury and a large building that is all but empty. The house is now said to be full of the long dead just wanting to make itself known and that is exactly what they did. The team experience an evening of strange noises and poltergeist activity.
For the estimated 12 million obese people living in the UK, just leaving the house can be terrifying, and some avoid being seen for fear of fat shaming. For most people, wearing a swimming costume on the beach can be nerve-wracking, but when you’re obese, it can be traumatising.
With one fifth of the world’s population expected to be obese in the next decade, there’s now a market for plus-size friendly holidays. Hidden away on an island in the heart of the Caribbean is the world’s only hotel that’s been exclusively built for plus-sized people: on the island of Eleuthera lies The Resort.
It may look like any normal hotel, but this is the only resort in the world that is custom built for people over 30 stone. All the rooms have been altered to suit the fuller figure: each chair is almost a metre wide and can withstand more than 40 stone of sunbather, doorways have been widened, and all the bed frames have been reinforced with two-inch steel bars. Here guests can eat what they like from a buffet open three times a day serving Caribbean or comfort food.
There is also a specially designed programme of activities that will force the guests to re-evaluate their bodies, and group therapy is encouraged.
Resort owner, James, says: “It’s a sanctuary. It’s a place where you can come and have a good holiday without any judgement whatsoever.”
Now a group of Brits who hate their bodies are heading to this plus-sized paradise to experience a radical new approach to confronting the prejudice they often encounter because of their size. They’ll be challenged to face their innermost fears, and inspired to find a new confidence to overcome their inhibitions, in a week that could transform their lives.
A freak farm accident is caught on CCTV and the team are scrambled to rescue the three young victims. Paramedic Andy fights to save a five-year-old boy run over on his way to school and there’s a tricky rescue in a ravine in the Dales.
Comedian Nish Kumar takes his fitness-freak friend Joel Dommett to the most remote islands of the Philippines, home to the hunter gatherer Tagbanua tribe. Joel will see if his hipster fitness regimes help him cope with Tagbanua life while Nish watches, guides, and occasionally mocks him. Joel will have to learn the skill of free-diving to catch fish, and conquer his biggest fear – heights – as he scales precarious cliffs searching for the precious commodity of abandoned birds’ nests.
In this episode, being enclosed in convent life gets too much for two of the girls and a fight breaks out at the top of a Cathedral. Sister Linda calms the situation and through this the girls learn an important lesson about forgiveness.
The group persuade the sisters to let them escape for a much needed night out. Swaffham is in for a shock as they choose skimpy attire for the local boozer. A false nail breakage crisis is compared to world famine by Rebecca. Sister Francis calmly talks her down and asks her to contemplate what she just said.
Following on from these events the girls seem to start listening. The nuns show the them another way of portraying themselves, an emotional breakdown ensues and model Gabi decides to go make up free.
It seems these girls might have started their journey towards redemption.
