Product Description

Product Description

Three-volume box set containing all six episodes of the Kay Mellor series chronicling the ups and downs of a weekly slimming group. In 'Love Me Slender', Betty Simpson (Alison Steadman) prepares to compete for the Yorkshire Superslimmer 2000 championship after losing five stones - but where is her husband, Douglas, when she needs him? 'Fat Chance' sees bus driver Alan's (Richard Ridings) wedding anniversary plans upset when his wife tells him she no longer loves him and he ends up in hospital. In 'Fat Free', actress Lauren (Gaynor Faye) throws her diet to the wind when she attends a Jewish meal with her family. 'Growing Pains' sees 14-year-old Jamie (James Corden) cracking under the strain of looking after his single parent mother and being bullied at school over his weight problem. In 'Face the Fat', Val (Kathryn Hunt) hires a male escort when she has to attend the launch of her new weekend supplement, and decides to write a feature on the secrets of the slimming world. 'When the Fat Lady Sings' sees Kelly (Ruth Jones) losing all her inhibitions on her hen night when she mixes alcohol with her slimming pills, and following Val's article the media descend to see if she can fit into her wedding dress.

5.0 out of 5 stars James corden steels the show! 13 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Fat Friends burst onto our screens in larger than life fashion last year, and british drama has never looked so good! For anyone who has ever attended wieght watchers and anyone who hasn't, there is a character you can relate to. All the characters are wonderfully layered and in typical Kay Mellor fashion and became became part of our lives.Each episode centred around one of the six main characters,(a bit like clocking off.)with the characters meeting every week at the slimming club.The one episode that stood out though was episode four entitled, growing pains. It stared the fabulous James corden in the lead role of Jamie. A young lad coming to terms with his parents separation while being bullied at school. It is a fantastic piece of television which broke my heart every time i watched it. James corden is without doubt one of the finest actors of his generation and i look forward to seeing him on my television soon. Roll on series two!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically funny; extremely well written 11 Jan 2001
A light hearted look at the normal lives of people trying to achieve a weight loss. Kay Mellor outstands in this well written drama with fantastic humour and very funny characters. Roll on another series.
