    I watched this programme and found it very interesting.

    Unusually, only his sister actually called him Brandon (out loud, and more than once). Everyone else - including 'Brandon's' best friend AND the bariatric surgeon who operated on him, referred to him as John.

    Since he was only 16 at the time the decision to go down the surgical route was pretty controversial.

    More and more teens in the UK are asking for gastric bands and bypasses.

    A worrying trend?
