RUSSIA's fattest woman has died aged 57 after appearing on a local answer to Jerry Springer weighing 55 stone.
Lyubov Nurdinova passed away at home after suffering from depression and refusing to answer the door to anyone, according to neighbours.
It followed her appearance on the Russian TV show “On Air Live” where the TV hosts suggested her kids had tried to poison her because they were fed up with caring for her.
The former school cook's youngest son Alexey, 25, had been looking after her since he was seven because she was bedridden and unable to leave her home in the Siberian city of Tyumen.
He was her permanent carer for all that time after her weight accelerated rapidly following three pregnancies.
Doctors offered to help her after her story was published on Russian website 72.ru, and she was moved to hospital where she managed to slim down to 23st from 55st.
Lyubov's success made her a minor local celebrity, landing her TV show appearances and she continued the weight loss with stomach reduction surgery.
She was even able to take her first steps after years of being unable to move without assistance.
The mum said it was just the start of a big plan to one day dress up in nice clothes and go out on the town, and that she hoped her story would inspire others not to give up.
