‘’, with a strict ban on ugly people, has said that it took the drastic measures after many members posted photos of themselves celebrating Christmas and New Year — revealing that they have let themselves go.

Even other vigilant members, who take pride in the standards demanded by the site, called for action, following which the portal decided to expel the fatties.

Greg Hodge, the portal’s Managing Director, said: “We responded to complaints by moving the newly chubby members back to the rating stage.

“This is the same as having them re-apply. Their reapplications were reviewed by existing members and only a few hundred were voted back in. Over 5,000 were rejected.”

The countries where most overweight people were expelled from are the US, Britain, Canada, Poland, Germany, Italy, France, Denmark and Turkey, a release said.
