Manchester presenter gets fat
BBC Radio Manchester's Becky Want is going from a size ten to a size eighteen.
With the aid of a ‘fat suit’ and prosthetic make-up, Becky is gaining a personal perspective on what it feels like to be overweight.
Becky’s transformation is part of a day of programming on the radio station looking at obesity issues.
Becky is broadcasting live from the Trafford Centre from 2pm today, where she will be looking at some of the health issues around weight gain and with the aid of the ‘fat suit’, will see for herself what carrying extra weight feels like.
