Georgia Davis – photos of Britain’s fattest teenager (63 stone)

GEORGIA Davis is so gargantuan that when she suffered as seizure the fire brigade, scaffolding engineers and medics had to rip down part of her mum’s home in Aberdare, South Wales, to treat her. Georgia Davis is 19. She weighs an estimated 63 stone. Rescue worked made a 10ft squre hole in her mum’s home through which they extracted Miss Davis with a crane before rolling her onto a ramp. She was then lowered onto a massive stretcher.

Georgia Davis now at a hospital in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales. She is her mother’s registered carer. Says Lesley Davis, for it is she:

“There’s a lot going on right now.”

She’s not joking. Lesley told us previously:

“I’m partly to blame. Georgia wasn’t born big. She was 7lbs 3oz. She wouldn’t eat the normal baby foods so I gave her things like tinned potatoes.”

Mum also, reportedly, fed the baby Georgia on condensed milk. For all Lesley’s own illnesses and upset – her husband and Georgia’s father died when she was five – she let her daughter down.

Georgia Davis – ‘Britain’s fattest teen’ – told us:

“At my worst, in a typical day, I’d have a couple of loaves-worth of ­sandwiches with jam or cheese or meat, five bags of crisps, two packets of chocolate ­bourbons, sponge cake, trifle, chocolate cake, four sausages, loads of mashed potato and beans for dinner and fizzy drinks all day and night.”

In 2008, Georgia weighed 33 stone. She went to the £3,600-a-month Wellspring diet academy, paid for by her TV and media appearances. After nine months of restricted rations and exercise, she returned weighting 18stone. Her type-2 diabetes vanished. And then:

“I’d been following a programme of healthy eating in the camp where I’d been living in North Carolina, America, and I’d learned to enjoy low-fat foods like salads, bagels, yoghurt and even buffalo meat. I was really looking forward to trying it all out back home but, when I arrived, my mum said she hadn’t had time to prepare any healthy food so we had fish and chips instead. From that moment on, I had a niggling feeling that things weren’t going to work out.”

She added:

“Around eight weeks after returning from camp I drifted off the plan. I felt really alone. My parents weren’t doing it with me at home and my friends weren’t doing it at college so there was no motivation to continue. I started reverting to my old ways. I wouldn’t eat for half a day then start bingeing into the night. I knew things were getting out of control but I didn’t want to return to the US because I missed my family too much and I was desperate to go to college and be a normal teenager.”

In Januaray 2011, Georgia told the Sun:

“When I walk past Greggs bakery it’s as if a siren is calling me in. I can’t resist the sweet meat in the sausage rolls. I’ve been eating five or six a day. I’ve also been eating lots of the sandwiches laden with mayonnaise, and chicken pasties.”

In February 2011, Georgia reached 40 stone.

In August 2011, she told The People:

“I thought my life was simply not worth living any longer and I believed suicide would be the best way out. I even got to thinking about how I’d kill myself and decided that slashing my wrists would be how I’d do it… Of course I loved my family and wanted to care for them, but I knew that I could only sort my own health out if I was away from Aberdare and on my own, or at least with people who’d coach and motivate me to lose weight and exercise…I just wanted to be dead, to be honest. Then one morning I woke up and realised I couldn’t go through with it ­because it would hurt my family and my friends too much. From that morning on, I decided I’d stay alive, if only for their sakes.”

Tabloids resisted the urge to write:  TOO FAT TO COMMIT SUICIDE!” and work out how someone so big could end it all.

In 2012 she wrote on Facebook:

“I’m in bed but problem is can’t get up. Earlier I was blocked in the toilet for like 20 minutes and if you sit on the loo for that long it bloody hurts. My legs hurt and so do my back though my knees will give out if I stay seated any longer.”

Here are some photos of Georgia, who will soon no longer be Britain’s fatest teenager. When she’s 20, she will surrender her tabloid title. And that might be no small relief. Keeping a title like Britain’s Fattest Teenager year on year in the face of so much competition cannot be easy. What price that at 20, when the tabloids look away to a new willing target, Georgia slims down…
