Celebrity Fit Club's seventh season will follow a similar "boot camp" format to its Spring 2008 sixth installment and feature eight out-of-shape celebrities attempting to shed weight with the help of "drill sergeant" Harvey Walden and nutrition and diet expert Dr. Ian Smith.

VH1 has ordered eight one-hour episodes of Celebrity Fit Club and a 90-minute finale.  The show has yet to be cast and will premiere next year.

Celebrity Fit Club, which premiered on VH1 in 2005, is produced by ITV Studios, Inc..

Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House's second season will also follow a similar format to its first season, which aired earlier this year, and follow a group of celebrities attempting to maintain sobriety and transition back into society free from addiction.

David "Dr. Drew" Pinsky, house manager Jennifer Gimenez, counselor Bob Forrest, and resident technician Will Smith will all reprise their Sober House roles for the show's second season.

VH1 has ordered eight one-hour episodes of Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House, and it is currently slated to premiere next year following the broadcast run of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew's third season.

VH1 renewed Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew for a third season in April, and the cast will consist of former One Day at a Time star Mackenzie Phillips; former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss; actor Tom Sizemore; former NBA star Dennis Rodman; country singer Mindy McCready; former America's Next Top Model fifth-season contestant Lisa D'Amato; ex-Alice in Chains bassist Mike Starr; former The Real World Hollywood cast member Joey Kovar; and former Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Peniche.

Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House is executive produced by John Irwin, Bruce Toms and Damian Sullivan for Irwin Entertainment.
