Holmes' father unhappy with weight-loss plans

Katie Holmes' plans to shed her post-pregnancy weight in preparation for her marriage to Tom Cruise have been met with opposition from her father.

The actress has met Sue Fleming, the owner of Buff Brides, which specialises in turning unfit fiancees into toned wives in a matter of weeks.

The Mission: Impossible star is reportedly overseeing his fiancee's fitness regime, much to the chagrin of her dad Martin Holems, who believes his daughter should be resting after giving birth to baby daughter Suri on April 18.

He tells British magazine Reveal: "My daughter needs rest, relaxation and recuperation.

“Katie is already doing exercises to build up her back and shoulders and I simply can't go along with what is happening."

But Fleming hits back: "Katie can and will do it. She has great motivation. She loves her fiance and was proud that Tom oversaw this programme.

"He told her he wanted her to be the most beautiful bride ever. She was in tears when he said that."

Cruise and Holmes are expected to wed this summer.
