World's heaviest man to marry on V-Day

entertainment Updated: Feb 13, 2012 20:00 IST


This Valentine's Day will be special for Manuel Uribe, the world's heaviest man - he will tie the knot with longtime girlfriend Claudia on the special occasion and it will be shown on television.

From interviews to pre-wedding preparations, all of it would be telecast on History TV18 channel Feb 14.

Manuel hit the headlines in March 2006 for his extraordinary weight. Following years of over-eating and an unhealthy lifestyle, Manuel hasn't left his bed in five years.

He became the heaviest man on the planet, weighing in at an incredible 540 kg and almost committed suicide after slipping into depression.

However, a sudden change of fate and the relentless assistance of doctors got him back on track. Although still unable to get out of bed, he has lost over 190 kg.

However, he is leaving no stone unturned to make his D-day special.
