It’s been a long, cold winter so a few people may have piled on the pounds as they tucked into warm, hearty meals.

It’s clearly taken its toll on some of the population because Debenhams has launched a XXXXXL size to accommodate the bigger British gentleman on the back of a 126% increase in outsize clothing over recent months.

The new size is a three-X leap from its former top size and comes with a whopping 48-inch waistline.
