Celebrity Fit Club is a reality television series which follows eight overweight celebrities as they try to lose weight. Split into two competing teams of four, each week teams are given different physical challenges, and weighed to see if they reached their target goal weights. They are monitored and supervised by a team that includes a nutritionist, a psychologist, and a physical trainer. The series is hosted by Ant.

Three Fat Bastards and One Black Beyotch (Winners)
Kimberley Locke, singer (traded from the Shady Lady Bunch where she was team captain)
Locke was voted off "Shady Lady Bunch" (now known as "The Athletes"), and Diamond was voted off "The Regulators."
After the vote off, Ant announced that the person voted off could pick one member from their old team to join the contestant on their new team. Kimberley chose Brat to join her, and Dustin chose Ross.
McCormick and Matthews hit their target 65 days into the program and now can set their own goals. Judd hit his target two weeks ahead of schedule and set a new target of hitting the 170's, which he accomplished at the final weigh-in.
Controversy was caused when Diamond gained weight and revealed that rather than meet with a trainer, instead went to a convention to advertise his new sex tape. He started an argument, saying that he would give Locke one of his sex toys. He left the show for a week and returned, also revealing that he had been taking Zantrex-3 to burn fat. But to everyones amazment he had lost 13 lb in the final wiegh in. He also showed up on the final weigh-in with a video mocking Da Brat and Judd, and was finally told by Harvey to "Get the fuck off my scale and have a lovely fucking day."
Season Six - 2008
There is no word yet from VH1 if there will be a season six. However, the finale of Season 5 drew in 2.7 million viewers, the biggest audience in the history of the show. Due to the stellar ratings of Season 5, it is very likely that there will be a Season Six. Rumored to be in the cast this season is singer Ruben Studdard, comedienne/actress Dawn French, and singer Wynonna Judd.
