Across the UK, thousands of super morbidly obese people too big to leave the home are shut away from the world. Can they turn their lives around?
Episode 2x3; Jan 23, 2019
Emily is a single mum with two small children. She is 24 years old but already weighs 26 stone. She's struggled with her weight all her life, but since the age of 17 she has become almost unrecognisable. She has completely lost control of her appetite and binges on large breakfasts, takeaways and snacks. Shame and fear of ridicule keep her largely confined to the house. This episode looks at the emotional demons that are pushing Emily to comfort eat. As her weight spirals ever higher, she is fearful for her life - convinced that one day she may never wake up. Emily puts herself in the hands of a top bariatric surgeon, but also seeks the services of a behavioural psychologist in a bid to understand what is driving her compulsive behaviour. Will Emily find the inner strength she needs to help herself?
