Louise tries size zero tolerance first-hand.

SIZE Zero is the current buzzword being bandied about the media. The frighteningly skinny figure, a British size four, is apparently what models aspire to.

Now Louise Redknapp discovers first hand the dangers of the current obsession with being stick thin when she undertakes an extreme crash diet. In The Truth About Size Zero (ITV1, Wednesday), Louise undergoes a punishing plan to dramatically drop two dress sizes in just 30 days. The TV presenter, who was voted FHM's Sexiest Woman of the Decade, says: "I went to stage school and I always wanted to be in entertainment, and I have always felt even at a size eight that I have never quite been skinny enough. There's always been a pressure to lose weight." In the documentary she finds out just what it takes to gain a size zero status.

She has to survive on 800 calories and a three-mile run every day, and discovers how the regime impacts on her health. She's closely monitored by Dr Adam Carey, who says: "I think the current vogue is macabre. I think it is obscene and very unhealthy."

Louise flies out to LA where she meets up with Denise Van Outen and Mel C, and is moved to tears at a clinic for eating disorders.
