Uncle Fatty, the simian lard arse is sent off to lose weight.

A monkey who has been given the nickname ‘uncle fatty’ is finally getting help for his obesity.

The 33lb long-tailed macaque will go to boot camp after gorging on food from tourists including melons, milkshakes, sweetcorn and noodles by visitors to a floating water market in Bangkok, Thailand.

He was taken in by primate conservation group Monkey Lovers who confirmed that he was not sick, just fat.

They now aim to get him to half his current weight and will make him run and swing around with other animals to help him lose weight.

Organiser Kawinoat MongKholtechaphat said: ‘Uncle has got fat because he has just been eating everything that people give to him.

Alas, it appears that Uncle Fatty did not make the required lifestyle transition and is now an ex-macaque.

The heartbreaking stories of Uncle Fatty and Godzilla: Chunky monkey who 'ate himself to death' with junk food and the obese tank top-wearing primate who had to go to fat camp in Thailand

Enter Uncle Fatty and Godzilla, the legendary chunky monkeys whose lives of indulgence have earnt them fame, but have also had devastating consequences for their health.

Cruelly kept on a lead and raised on a diet of junk food, Godzilla's weight ballooned to more than 20kg, and he became a major tourist attraction at his owner's market stall in Bangkok.

He soon drew comparisons with Uncle Fatty, another popular overweight primate, who had tipped the scales at 27kg and was believed to be between 10 and 15 years old.

Both forced into fat camp, the primates were able to shift some of their weight on strict diet regimes. But after returning to the wild, and having not been seen in years, Uncle Fatty is now widely believed to have eaten himself to death.
