Synopsis

Timothy Spall stars in this one-off ITV comedy drama written by Caroline Aherne and Jeff Pope. Georgie Godwin (Spall) is officially the Fattest Man in Britain. His agent, Morris Morrissey (Bobby Ball), is in charge of making sure that Georgie retains his title, and keeps the cash cow alive by feeding Georgie up and bringing taxi-loads of tourists to gawp at what he describes as the 'eighth wonder of the world'. Georgie gets a shot at the big time when he is asked to take part in a live TV 'weigh-off' - but is it in anyone's interest for him to get thinner?
