Maverick film-maker Michael Moore has enrolled on a crash course at a $3,800-a-week (GBP2,100-a-week) celebrity fat farm in a bid to loose weight.

The FAHRENHEIT 9/11 director has booked into the Pritikin Longevity Center And Spa in Aventura, Florida, where he is learning to cook healthy meals and will undergo "life re-education", according to PageSix.com.

Moore is reportedly aiming to loose 5.4 kilograms (12 pounds) during the first three weeks.
