Isabella and Chris Wray from Edgbaston, Birmingham. A morbidly obese couple who tip the scales at almost 600lbs between them have spent their life savings on matching gastric bands – because the NHS didn’t make them FAT. See SWNS story SWFAT. Isabella and Chris Wray realise they are the only people to blame for their expanding waistlines, thanks to a gut-busting diet of takeaways and multiple breakfasts, and decided to spend £10,000 on private weight-loss ops – because they don’t want the taxpayer to pay. Proud Isabella, 31, does not think it is right for the NHS to fund their operations, because the taxpayer did not make them fat in the first place. Isabella, who tips the scales at 19-and-a-half stone, and 41-year-old hubby Chris, who weighs in at a whopping 21-and-a-half stone, will go under the knife next month at a private hospital near their home in Birmingham.
