Super slimmer Phil Kayes (Liam McBurney/RAZORPIX)

A Co Down man who weighed a whopping 37 stone has found a whole new quality of life after shedding more than half his body weight.

Phil Kayes, a civil servant from Bangor, was so embarrassed about his weight that he shut himself off from friends for decades.

Now since dropping an incredible 21 stone over the past three years, Phil has gone from never leaving the house to living life to the full.
