At 25, Jack could be the poster boy for today’s obesity epidemic. Instead of enjoying young, single life he’s been living in his bedroom, addicted to computer games and sweets.
At 6ft 5in, Jack’s always been the biggest amongst his peers, at aged nine he already weighed nine stones. By puberty, he was heading towards morbid obesity.
With Jack’s weight topping twenty-eight and a half stones his family and friends felt that if he did not lose weight he could die young. To shock him into losing weight his mother even spoken about getting him a funeral fund, while his grandmother lavishes money on buying clothes at a regular size in the hope that this will convince him to slim into them.
Before the show, Jack hated his body, especially his man boobs, and could not understand how anyone could find him attractive. Can he lose nearly half his bodyweight and embark on living a normal life?
