Paul, who cannot afford treatment in the States, said: “I don’t know where I’m going to go first. I think I’m going to have a cup of tea.

“They have tea here in the US but I want a proper British cuppa.”

Paul, 58, from Ipswich, once weighed 70st but slimmed down to 19st after NHS surgery.

He moved to the US five years ago but has binge-eaten his way back to 40st over there.

A documentary about Paul’s life in the US — called The World’s Fattest Man, The Big American Adventure — is to be released this summer.
