Donncha O’Callaghan takes on Coaching role in upcoming ‘Ireland’s Fittest Family’ S05
02 Jun 2017 : Katie McNeice
RTÉ have announced the rugby legend will join S04 winner Anna Geary, GAA legend Davy Fitz and Olympic athlete Derval O’Rourke when the series returns this Autumn.

Each season ‘Ireland’s Fittest Family’ sees twelve mega-fit families compete against each other in a gruelling contest for the title of fittest family and €15,000 in prize money. The fifth season films in various locations around Ireland this Summer. The previous season attracted an average audience of 391,000 while the final on December 18th drew around 462,000 viewers.

Donncha O’Callaghan, Coach:

“After watching it at home for years I’m dying to get stuck into Ireland’s Fittest Family…and personally I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer than winding- up Davy Fitz!”

Derval O’Rourke, Coach:

“I’m very excited to be returning to Fittest Family, as the winner of series two I’m out to prove it was no fluke as I take on Davy, Anna and Donncha – did I mention that I had Two families in the final of series two? Just sayin’ like.”

Presented by Mairead Ronan Ireland’s Fittest Family is produced by Animo TV and Kite Entertainment.
