It’s back.

RTÉ has announced that Operation Transformation is set to return to our screens next year.

Starting on Wednesday, 4th January 2023 at 9.30pm on RTÉ One, we will see a new group of leaders in the series as they promote healthier lifestyles.

Set to follow five leaders from across the country, they will take on a health and wellness plan under the careful supervision of four qualified experts in hopes of starting a new chapter in their lives.

Entering its 16th series, the show is getting a new format. Still focusing on health as a whole, there will be 14 specific health indicators.

These include upper body strength, balance, lower body strength and cardiovascular adding to the usual hydration, blood pressure, metabolic age, weight, general health, nutrition, movement, among others.

Professor Niall Moyna is set to highlight the importance of everyday moving, while former leader Katie Jones is set to host a new podcast about the series.

Kathryn Thomas is back at the helm while dietitian Sophie Pratt is joining the expert panel.

Pratt will work alongside Dr. Sumi Dunne, Dr. Eddie Murphy, and Karl Henry on our OT panel of experts for 2023.

On joining the new show, Pratt said: “I am delighted to be part of the Operation Transformation team and I am really looking forward to guiding the leaders on their journey. I hope that together we can inspire the general public to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes for their own transformation in 2023.”
