BRITAIN'S top breakfast programme, GMTV, will be broadcasting live from Majorca all next week as they help a group of volunteers get fit and look good for the summer. “Inch Loss Beach,” will be based in Camp de Mar and is designed for people wanting to shed a couple of stone in time for the summer. The four volunteers, who arrived in Majorca with the film crew yesterday, were chosen from 4'000 people who came forward and all are apparently two stone overweight. So for those of you wanting to tone up for the beach while also losing a couple of pounds, tune in and join GMTV's fitness and health experts. Inch Loss Beach will be broadcasting every morning next week, but not always from the beach. The volunteers will be taken cycling, walking, swimming, roller-blading and also taken through a session of aqua-sports. And if that is not enough, they will be taken through their paces of a military-style adventure assault course near Camp de Mar. This is the second Inch Loss Beach story, but last year the volunteers were taken to a remote windswept island where the overweight volunteers were marooned for the week. GMTV's resident Dr Hilary and health and fitness experts Amanda, Nicki and Peter will be in charge of the weight-loss training camp. Each of the four recruits have completely different characters so that the millions of viewers who will be getting up with the Majorcan sunshine next week, can identify with them. Viewers of GMTV will have already met the four recruits who have been appearing on the show throughout the week, but from Monday morning, viewers will be able to see them sweat it out in the Majorcan heat. British television has its sights set on Majorca again this summer. Once GMTV have packed up and returned to London, BBC1 prime time will be arriving in Majorca to film a Travel Programme summer special on the island which will feature everything from agro-tourism to Magalluf and family holidays in Alcudia. At the end of June, ITV's top travel show Wish You Were here will be here and the Passport for the Sun team are expected to return for a fourth series, although this time around Majorca will share the morning television spotlight with Ibiza. Already this year a number of hard news programmes have been flown down to the island to report on the tourist tax, the island's changing property market and the general problems facing tourists and the tourists industry this summer.
