  • Season Premiere

    2008-05-26T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

Ex-Navy career girl Amanda is now a full time mother of five and despite this, still has a svelte figure that many women would give their right arm for.

But drinking super sugary tea, a 20-a-day rollie habit, home hair dye and a penchant for charity bargain bin clothing have left this would be yummy mummy more slummy mummy.

However, help is at hand from our team of experts ready to nip, tuck, laser, slice and style back the years. From a new nose and chemical peel, to pearly whites and glowing skin, Amanda gets a makeover like no other. All that is left is a little laser eye surgery so that she can really see the amazing results.

5x02 Dee Pearce

  • 2008-06-02T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

Care worker Dee is desperately in need of the 10 Years Younger treatment. Thirty-five years of smoking 20 cigarettes a day have resulted in gum disease so severe most of her teeth dropped out, and the rest had to be pulled.

Ten years of wearing ill-fitting dentures have shattered her confidence and the once glamorous Dee, who used to buy a new party frock every week, subsided into a look that's all about functional clothes.

But one magical journey with the 10 Years Younger team can certainly put the spark of confidence back.

5x03 Nicki Powdich

  • 2008-06-09T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

Drinking gallons of cola every day has left 39-year-old mother-of-two Nikki Powditch - a kennel maid and ex-Mohican wearer from Melton Mowbray - with teeth so rotten they were all whipped out, causing her face to sink in.

And it showed in the poll - with the public piling on a shocking 14 years.

The white hair and false teeth don't do her justice among the yummy mummies at home time. But after cosmetic surgery, designer dentures and a fashion make-over, and with fabulous hair and make-up like the stars, Nikki looks like an A-list starlet.

  • 2008-06-23T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

Mel Smith is a single working mum of two, looking for love. Online dating helps, but once they've clapped eyes on her wrinkled face, Mel's never invited back for coffee.

Nicky Hambleton-Jones injects some girly gloss and shares some shopping tips, and after a head-to-toe makeover from the rest of the team, it turns out Mel's a sexy siren after all, and won't be on the single shelf for long.

Plus, Nicky hits the high street to make shopping a stress-free treat rather than a stressed-out chore, and dentist Dr Uchenna Okoye shares her secrets on tooth whitening.

5x06 Veronica Brand

  • 2008-06-30T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

Veronica Brand is a sun loving naturist and yoga teacher who at every opportunity strips off to embrace the rays. So it's hardly surprising that scans have shown this sunshine goddess to have the wrinkled skin of an 80-year-old.

With Veronica's love for oversized bland hippy clothes and complete lack of skin care, it's a mystery where her brood of fashionista kids has come from...

With a face lift, clothes that fit, a dramatic hair change and modern make-up Veronica hits the West End and wows her family and friends.

5x07 Marilyn Cooke

  • 2008-07-07T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

Retro reject Marilyn Cooke loves nothing more than backcombing her 80s hairdo and then cementing it in place with two giant cans of hairspray a week - trouble is she's been doing it for 25 years.

Marilyn has also spent most of her life hammering the sun beds too, leaving her with skin to rival a leather handbag and wrinkles so deep even Mr Stanek was surprised. Couple that with her oversized, ill-fitting dentures and it's no wonder people stop and stare in the street.

Can this garish granny really be transformed into a gorgeous grandma? Of course - and the result is truly fresh, fashionable and fabulous.

5x08 Jane Sandiford

  • 2008-07-14T23:00:00Z — 60 mins

A real-life Cinderella from Surrey, Jane Sandiford has two very glamorous older sisters, who easily look 10 years her junior. She doesn't call herself 'plain Jane' for nothing - with limp boring bobbed hair, bottle bottom glasses and no beauty regime to speak of, our Cinders is in desperate need of some magic.

At 5'11" Jane has the figure of a supermodel, but wearing her 14-year-old daughter's hand-me-downs just doesn't do her justice.

Although she is a part-time sales assistant at a high street cosmetics store, Jane is absolutely clueless when it comes to beauty products. With the little wave of a mascara wand, the team soon turn her into a walking talking fashion and beauty expert. The end result - Cinderella is definitely going to the ball!
