As a person of more than average girth, I find the propensity in this forum to use the words "Fat and Ugly" slightly offensive. Fat people do not have to be ugly, it is quite possible to be fat and handsome at the same time.
I am very surprised that all of you intelligent people are taken in by this obviously phoney situation. It's SuBo all over again, like her this young man has had mental health problems (according to newspaper reports), and I question the morality of putting someone so obviously vulnerable through this sort of freak show. The reaction of the audience in the clip I saw was obviously choreographed to give the effect that Simon Hightrousers was looking for - Ugly duckling into swan - and in a few years time when this lad is dropped by the media and his record company; who amongst them is going to give a toss about him or his fragile mental condition?
