London, Feb 16 (IANS) Britain’s fattest woman weighs 254 kg and is so huge that she has not left her house in four years, Daily Mail reported Thursday.

Brenda Flanagan-Davies, 43, has never once sat in her taxpayer-funded living room because it takes too much effort for her to walk there from bed.

Once as heavy as 45 stone (about 285 kg), Brenda is now the heaviest women in Britain following the death of 45-stone Sharon Mevsimler in 2010.

The former shop assistant, from Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, eats more than 6,000 calories per day - including nine chocolate bars and three litres of fizzy drinks.

The recommended daily calorie intake for women is 2,000.

Brenda is virtually bed-bound by her extreme girth and is so addicted to food she even has a fridge next to her reinforced bed crammed full of chocolates and soda.

Now after years of being confined to her tiny bungalow, Brenda is begging for help after doctors warned her to “lose weight or die”.

She said: “I spend my life in bed - that’s not a life. I have tried countless diets but I can’t stop eating. I can’t walk 20 feet to my shower without getting out of breath.”
