Fitness expert Jillian Michaels has announced plans to leave The Biggest Loser at the end of the current season. According to Michaels she wants to take some time off to just be a mom.
Michaels has been the shows main fitness expert since it began, except for a short absence in 2006.
On her Twitter account she posted:
“Season 11 of Biggest Loser will be my last 🙂 have to finish out my contract,” adding, “I want to take a year off TV and focus on becoming a mommy and doing more charity work.”
Earlier in the year Michaels said she couldn’t give birth because she suffers from endometriosis and Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome, however she revealed to Women’s Health in May that she would look to adoption:
“I’m going to adopt. I can’t handle doing that to my body.”
The replacement for Jillian has already been hired and is currently in training for the show.
The newest season of The Biggest Loser premieres next month.
