Amy told the Daily Star: ‘I’ve been dealing with issues around my weight since I was eight. Over the years I tried different diets and quick fixes. 

‘The hardest times were when I was made to feel embarrassed. Whenever I was on a plane I’d have to ask for an extension for my belt.’ 

She said she was so self-conscious about the request, she’d book aisle seats so she wouldn’t need to ask for the belt in front of a stranger.

Amy added: ‘When I went to Disney with my family, me and my dad had to sit in a different row on a ride because we needed bigger seats. When things like that happen it’s horrible. It makes you feel like you’re not normal.’
