Putting on weight can make everyone feel rubbish about themselves, so imagine what life is like for 70-stone Keith.

Because of his bulky body, he has not left his house in a staggering 11 years - or his bed in two.

Keith weighs a staggering 70 stone

Having been left unable to walk, wash or even go to the bathroom unaided, Keith is now determined to regain his life - and independence through weight loss surgery.

Saving Britain's 70-stone Man follows Keith's journey through weight-loss surgery - but before he gets to that stage, he needs to lose weight himself, because otherwise the operation would be too risky.

So despite being bed-bound, Keith follows a strict diet and physiotherapy regime in order to make him a more suitable candidate for the surgery.

In order to see whether Keith succeeds in his battle to gain control of his weight and his independence, watch Saving Britain's 70-Stone Man on Channel 5 tonight at 9pm.
