Pictured Thomas Travers. A mum says her son turned into a 'real-life Simpsons character' with yellow skin - after eating too many ORANGES. See SWNS story SWSYoranges. Charlotte Travers, 32, noticed her lad Thomas was becoming a yellow colour and took him to the doctor for tests. The family were stunned to discover the problem was caused by the six-year-old's love of eating oranges and satsumas - sometimes a bag a day.
