The 23-year-old, from Cork in Ireland, struggled to find clothes to fit her size 20 frame and with a BMI of 40 she was classed as severely obese.

But after overhearing someone say she looked like a charging rhino while running for a tram in Manchester, Eva finally found the motivation she needed and slimmed down to a size 12.

"I couldn't believe how big I had let myself get, it was humiliating,” preschool teacher Eva said.

"I was running for a tram in Manchester when I heard a stranger say that I looked like the charging rhino from the film Jumanji.

"But after that incident I was completely mortified and that's when I knew I needed to make a change."

Eva admits that for as long as she can remember she had always been bigger than the other girls her age.

"When I hit 18 I weighed 15st and then the weight really piled on, over the next two years I gained a further three stone,” she said.

"I was constantly out drinking with friends, and I hit a rough patch and became depressed so started comfort eating, it was a vicious cycle.

"On my 21st birthday, I had arranged a joint night out with a friends whose birthday was close to mine, but I couldn't find a dress that fit me.

"I felt awful and it really upset me, I let my friend take the limelight all night and I refused to get in any photos."

And after the rhino incident, not long after her 21st birthday, she joined Slimming World.
