Martin took over the "title" after Mexican Manuel Uribe, who is still listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the heaviest man, confirmed that he went on a diet to reduce his weight to a trim 31 stone. Martin requires a constant presence of eight ambulance workers to lift him on to a reinforced vehicle for frequent hospital visits and the total number of health professionals rising to 18 including carers and nurses.

Speaking in a Channel 5 documentary, Martin said that he lost interest in everything except food after the death of his mother when he was aged 16. "My mother died when I was 16 and I didn't care about anything after that and I couldn't care less about what happened to me - I ate anything and everything. I blame myself. It was my fault and I hate what I have done to myself", he said.
