EastEnders star to join fat fighters TV show alongside Z-listers!

Star lands first job since quitting the soap.

The minute your agent tells you they've signed you up to appear on a telly show in which you have to shed pounds alongside a bunch of Z-list celebs, it's time to look for new representation.

In January, channel TLC will air tacky the sounding Celebrity Fat Fighters, a three-part series that will see seven washed up faces trying to get thin fast.

Already announced to appear on the show are Stevi Ritchie, Sandi from Gogglebox and Boig Brother desperado Lateysha Grace.

Other names include Jennifer Ellison - who has entertained us for years with her yo-yo bod, some comedian guy called Danny Miles and TOWIE's very own goblin James 'Diags' Bennewith.

But the participant who has surprised us most is EastEnders star Riley Carter Millington.

The actor, who has quit the soap, will join the motley crew of Z-listers to try to lose weight and kick bad habits.

Russian lifestyle coach Galia Grainger will put the stars through their paces with unorthodox methods and a no-nonsense attitude.

It;'s believed the weight-worries will live off 400 calories a day and will endure eight hours of unconventional, but intense, training. Amazing what a wannabe will do for a pay check, eh?

"Our seven brave celebrities are in for a very unique brand of shock therapy as they bid to take back control of their body and mind," Clare Laycock, Head of TLC said.

"Expect sweat, tears, hunger pangs and unlikely friendships but no treats at this retreat for the rich and famous."
