Presented by Anna Richardson, the hidden camera show returns bigger, fatter and funnier - exposing the eating habits of the nation by putting families and friends under 24 hour camera surveillance to discover who is a Secret Eater.
Secret Eaters can't understand why they are piling on the pounds - but cameras will capture the shocking truth behind a household's eating habits by exposing the gap between what they think they eat and what they actually consume.
While a camera rig is moved into the Secret Eaters' home, it's up to Private Investigators Duncan Mee and Cameron Gowlett to secretly track their every movement. They'll use all the tricks of their undercover surveillance techniques to gather evidence of secret eating for the Incident Room.
But when it comes to eating, once we pop most of us just can't stop, so the hidden cameras won't just be concentrating on one family's dietary downfalls. This time the cameras will be trained on the public too. In all the places where we throw caution to the wind, like an all you can eat buffet or the office biscuit tin, the series will reveal the truth of Britain's outrageous, and often comedic, eating habits.
Anna will once again bring her humour and honesty to the series as she exposes the family's secret snacking. She'll also reveal the hidden ingredients and calories that have been feeding the secret eaters', and all of Britain's, ever expanding waistbands.
Fat or thin we'll be catching everyone as they secretly eat - at work, rest or play.
Colette Foster, Managing Director at Remarkable Television adds: "We're a nation of mindless eaters, reaching for the biscuits barrel without actually thinking about the calorie content. The series will feature some big new stunts and surprises to guarantee we capture a true picture of our secret eating habits."
Secret Eaters was commissioned by Karoline Copping at Channel 4 and is executive produced by Remarkable Television's Lizi Wootton. The 8 x 60 format is set to air in 2013.
