No, not that you need to drop everything and hit the gym. No, not that you should quit your job immediately and focus on your new keto diet.

It means that Operation Transformation is back, providing us with a solid few months of wholesome reality TV featuring people learning all about health and fitness.

Just the show to kick back and relax with of a Wednesday, right?

The 2020 series of the show features a whole new host of leaders from across the country, all hoping to make some positive changes in their lifestyles to ensure that they're getting the most out of life.

For the first time in the show's history, Operation Transformation will be taking place predominantly in Co Offaly as Kathryn Thomas encourages her leaders - as well as the entire country, to be fair - to get health conscious and kick off the New Year the right way.

Among the leaders is Glanmire's Tanya Carroll, a woman who lives a fairly hectic lifestyle - all fuelled by Coke.

"Obsessed with Coca Cola, Tanya says she's been heavy for years, but the weight really came on after she gave up smoking," says RTÉ ahead of tonight's show.

"On a given day, she says, she'll drink between six and eight cans of the soft drink and starts her day with that and coffee.

"As a busy mum and carer for her elderly dad, who has diabetes and is also overweight, Tanya has a lot on her plate. Her family struggles to talk about weight with her, while her husband is upset by her low self-esteem."

Operation Transformation returns tonight at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
