Georgia Davis is a one-woman fat and therapy industry

GEORGIA Davis is on the cover of the Daily Mirror . Yesterday we read how 63-stone Georgia was helped from her mother’s home in Aberdare a team of engineers, medics, scaffolders and firemen. The Sun counted a team of 40 rescuers. The Mirror’s Fleet Street Fox spotted 28 . The Mail twisted on 30 . The Mirror upped the count to 40 . Then the Sun has come back with 50 . The Sun wins.

That medical insight featured the above photo of Davis seemingly perched on Hendry’s leg like a puppet being worked. I am no psychologist, but if make a woman with issues a celebrity for having those issues it might encourage her to remain fat and famous.
