The thing is, what happens when the deformedly is reversed? Instead of little Ronnie Corbett midgets there is a condition which causes the body to grow at a considerable rate, this is known as Acromegaly.
It's a rare disability which produces excessive amounts of growth hormone which turns sufferers as ideal candidates for pantos - Such as Jack and the Beanstalk and adoptions of Roald Dahl's BFG.
As ever, Channel 4 jumped at the chance to air a documentary about this freakish condition and in a couple of week’s time you can follow the extraordinary life of Thirty-one-year-old Tanya Angus.
Tanya is freak-of-nature height of 6 foot, 6 inches and is still growing; she is the world’s only misfit who can't stop growing causing her great discomfort and probably Top Shop's ideal customer!
The documentary follows her attempt to find a way to cure her condition, visiting a leading specialist in the vain attempt to find a solution.
On the show itself Tanya seems to be a very intelligent and focus young lady, which is incredible if you think about it - as she always has her head in the clouds!!
I'm Turning Into a Giant is on Channel 4, 1st June at 10pm.
