Harvey Olikh One of the UK’s heaviest men is ecstatic after losing over 190KG.
He used to weigh more than 317KG, but after a health scare, he has lost more than half his weight.

The 48-year-old explained: “This weight loss is a never-ending gift – and it’s not just for Christmas!
“It’s as if I awoke after Scrooge’s three ghosts, and I’m still alive.”
