Angie Dowds sacked from Biggest Loser UK
The fitness trainer has worked on the ITV weight loss show since 2005 and should know the rules of the competition by now. However producers overheard her telling her team to eat just fruit and nuts ahead of their next weigh-in, while the premise of the show is that the overweight contestants drop pounds by eating normal, healthy meals and by exercising regularly.
Angie told The Sun:
“The day before weigh-in I decided to tell my Black Team to go off-plan and eat apples and nuts to try and get as much weight off as possible on that weigh-in.
“It’s not the Biggest Loser way and I made a bad choice. My competitiveness had taken over. My head was just, ‘Go to win’.
“We decided between us, the producers and I, that it was best for me to take a step back at that point, which means my Black Team loses their trainer in the most crucial two weeks.
“By just that one silly decision, I really let those guys down.
“To have to walk away was just devastating, but it was the right thing to do.”
Angie’s Black Team will now join the Blue team and train with Richard Callender.
