A DAD and daughter duo have lost more than 13 stone between them during lockdown.
Jonathan and Charlotte Howes decided they'd had enough of hating the way they looked.
They piled on the pounds by snacking on chocolate and biscuits which left them both overweight, unfit and miserable.
Charlotte, 22, said she was so unhappy with her size 20 frame that she watched herself eating chocolate in the mirror then thought about how much she loathed the way she looked.

By 1893, Arthur Conan Doyle was a worldwide literary sensation. But he was also a man dogged by an unlikely enemy, and that enemy’s name was Sherlock Holmes. Frankenstein-like, the fictional detective haunted his creator, tormenting him, and would not leave him alone. For it must be said that Conan Doyle was a man of high literary aspirations, with a yearning to write books of both “serious” literature and psychical research.
