"Britain's Fattest Man" died on New Years Day, this is one of several stories on the Birmingham Mail.


Tributes paid to Birmingham City fan Barry Austin known as 'Britain's fattest man' after tragic death




Tributes have been paid to well-known Birmingham City supporter Barry Austin - once declared Britain's fattest man - after his tragic death at the age of 52.

Birmingham City announced via a statement that Barry - known as Fat Baz - died on New Year's Day after a health battle.

The club put out a brilliant photo of Barry on social media last night, and said: "We are saddened to hear of the passing of lifelong Bluenose, Barry Austin. His love for Blues was unquestionable. May you rest in peace, Baz."

Chelmsley Wood resident Barry gained popularity after he took part in the SkyOne documentary Inside Britain's Fattest Man.

He also took part in ITV’s The Fattest Man in Britain where he admitted he consumed up to 29,000 calories a day, including 12 litres of fizzy drink.

Barry, meanwhile, had his own custom-built chair at St Andrew's which took up the space of three 'normal' seats inside the stadium.

The ex-cab driver appeared to be turning his life around in April 2012 when he was reported to have shed 20 stone to marry his fiancé Debbie Kirby, 50.

It's a shame and all that, but it is sad that the media are almost idolising this obese fellow. At least he didn't die from Covid though...

That's the video. You're a legend I couldn't find it. Thanks! No doubt she's a psycopath.

Im not sure as to the validity of the Claire Edwards clip, but when it came out I wondered why St Jacinda was first on her list whilst Dictator Dan got no mention.


Perhaps she has more insider knowledge.

That's nothing. You should see what his wife's vagina can do.
