ITV documentary series ‘100 Years Younger in 21 days’ will feature eight celebrities.
Soap stars June Brown, Claire King, Sherrie Hewson and Sid Owen are among those who’ll be looking to shave off a few years through diet and exercise. The line-up also includes long-time Catchphrase presenter Roy Walker, musician Shaun Ryder; Gogglebox‘s Sandra Martin and astrologer Russell Grant.
The eight celebrities are taking part in a bold and unique experiment, to find out if we really can stop the aging process and turn back time. Can they lose 100 years between them without going under the knife?
“We’re thrilled to be working with ITV on this exciting new series, centred on the hot topic of anti-ageing, 100 Years Younger in 21 Days promises laughter, shocking discoveries and some home truths. It’s never too late to make changes to our lifestyles and this incredible line-up of game celebrities should inspire us all.” – Melissa Brown, executive producer, Wall to Wall

After undergoing scientific testing to discover how well, or badly, they are aging, the group will spend 21 days on the island of Sardinia, home to one of the oldest populations in the world which includes a blue zone. They will be asked to commit to a strict diet and exercise routine and be subjected to cutting edge, extreme, anti-aging treatments.
More tests will take place at the end of the process to determine if they have reached their combined goal of losing 100 years from their collective biological ages, both physically and mentally, inside and out.
“Who doesn’t want to turn back the clock and look and feel a bit more youthful? Anti-ageing concerns us all but to find out whether you can roll back the years by experiencing life in the blue zone, we have used leading experts and physicians along with a bunch of brave celebrities prepared to be put through their paces.” – Kate Teckman, Commissioning Editor, ITV
