A chronically obese teenager cut free from her home by workmen after she grew too big to go outside has vowed to turn her life around.

Georgia Davis, who weighs in excess of 60st, has been recovering in hospital since the dramatic rescue from the house that had become her prison.

The 19-year-old is now receiving round-the-clock medical attention from her specially designed "bariactric" bed and is breathing via an oxygen mask.

Speaking from her ward following the rescue, Davis said she was "sick" of her weight and promised to get her life back.

"This is the last time you'll ever see me like this," she told The Sun.

Medics were called to the teenager's terraced house in Aberdare, south Wales, on 23 May after she became unwell with respiratory and joint problems.

After demolishing part of her house, Davis was carried out on a specially constructed stretcher before a reinforced ambulance took her to The Prince of Wales Hospital in Merthyr Tydfil.

She is now on a strict calorie-controlled and sugar-free diet.

Following the urgent rescue, reported to have cost £100,000, neighbours claimed Davis - once dubbed "Britain's fattest teen" - had not been seen outside for up to three years.

In that time her weight ballooned to such proportions it is believed it became a serious threat to her life.

Davis became a minor celebrity when she took part in an American bootcamp series and slimmed down to a healthier weight and more manageable size.

But neighbours claimed that her disappearance from view coincided with a new bout of weight gain around three years ago.
