Eat, Shop, Save returns to ITV for a brand new series
Consumer advice series Eat, Shop, Save returns to ITV for a brand new series next month with presenter Ranvir Singh joined by chef and nutritionist Dale Pinnock, savvy shopper Kate Hardcastle and fitness consultant Tom Pitfield.
The Eat, Shop, Save team will once again offer families around the UK advice on how to change their lifestyle to help get them fitter, eat better and save money on their shopping.
At a time of rising inflation, with families feeling burned out, when weekly grocery budgets are being stretched by high prices at the checkouts, and with the UK being the most overweight country in Western Europe, Ranvir and her team of experts meet a new family each week, who are facing a range of issues.
In each half-hour episode, Ranvir sets the families an eight-week challenge, with the experts on hand to offer tips along the way. The first series saw an average of three million people tune in hoping to gain useful tips to improve their lifestyles.
The second series features a family living off ultra-processed food, a dad addicted to sugary energy drinks, an overweight single mum worried her bad habits will affect her children’s health, and a family afraid of using their freezer.
Presenter Ranvir Singh said: “When armed with the right support, the differences people can make to their bank balances and their bodies are life-changing. The Eat, Shop, Save team help families up and down the country achieve what they really want, and that usually means feeling healthier, more in control of their finances and more positive about the future.”
Chef and nutritionist Dale Pinnock said:”The beauty of this series was the opportunity to show people the true extent to which the food they eat can affect them on almost every level. Whether it is learning to cook from scratch, reducing the stress of family mealtimes or giving their favourite takeaway a healthy face lift, it meant the families were able to see big changes that had a wonderful effect on their health, wealth and happiness.”
Savvy shopper Kate Hardcastle MBE said:“Every penny counts, and if you look after them, the pounds look after themselves. Families deserve to save money and eat well and I want to help them take easy steps to feeling more in control for the weekly shop. Retailers should put their customers at the heart of the shopping experience, but with more marketing ‘tricks’ than ever – I can share my ‘insider’ knowledge to help you get the best savings.”
ITV’s Controller of Current Affairs Tom Giles says: “We’re delighted to announce Ranvir’s new series which sees her helping typical families who are almost at breaking point and need a little support to help them make better choices and save money.”
Eat, Shop, Save is a 4 x 30 minute formatted consumer series, commissioned by ITV’s Controller of Current Affairs Tom Giles. The series is produced by Shiver, the ITV Studios label, Executive Producer is Laura Caveney-Morgan, and Series Producer is Richard Makinson.
Eat, Shop, Save returns to ITV for a brand new series in July. (ITV)
