Davina McCall (The Jump, Long Lost Family) hosts a brand new series of this life-transforming primetime entertainment programme.

Each compelling episode features extraordinary people from around the UK who share with viewers what they pledge to change in their life by ‘This Time Next Year’.  Over the course of 12 months they aim to fulfil their dreams of losing weight, meeting an unknown family member, having children, or finally realising a lifelong personal ambition. In this current series, those featured include a young boy who hopes to take his first steps; a mother and daughter who want to lose 15 stone between them; a family who want to help their mum find love and a Bollywood dancer hopeful.   

Their transformations appear instantaneous using the programme’s ‘time travel’ style format. Once each pledge is made, the contributor leave the studio ready to begin their challenge but just moments later reappear completely transformed one year later, hopefully revealing a brand new them.

The current series in the UK is one of two further series recommissioned in the UK. With global productions airing worldwide, this multi-award winning phenomenon is leading the way in the ‘time travel television’ genre trend.
