Amber Harkin, 26, of Londonderry, Northern Ireland,was just 14 when she began struggling with issues with her body, before eventually being diagnosed with anorexia in 2014.

Despite two years of psychological treatment her weight plunged to just FIVE stone and she eventually stopped eating altogether.

Doctors told her devastated parents she was "beyond recovery" and "wasn't going to make it" and she was sent home, too weak to even walk.
