A woman has said her boobs are so big that she burnt them on a Nando's grill.
Esme ‘Lili’ Clemson, from Wolverhampton, was horrified when one of her 32JJ breasts touched the scorching hot grill while she was cleaning up at the popular chicken restaurant.
And she has now been left feeling frustrated after being denied a breast reduction on the NHS.

Sharing her painful experience she said: "The grill was still hot and I leaned too far forward when cleaning the back and I actually burned one side of my boob as I was leaning over."
Esme has now reached breaking point and she is asking strangers to help her pay for a private breast reduction after she was rejected by the NHS, the Mirror reports.

"My boobs are currently 32JJ/K. People my age are normally a 32C," she told the publication.
"There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about getting a reduction. It would mean the world to me.
"I would not wish to give these boobs to my worst enemy. I don't think people realise how severe this is. It's not a blessing. My boobs are not perky, they sag, they droop, they have stretch marks all around them, they are not attractive or nice to look at."
But it is not just down to the size as Esme revealed that she also suffers from acne on her breasts.
She said: "Because there's a lot of skin on skin around my torso and chest area it accumulates sweat and I get acne in certain areas. It makes them look uglier which makes me feel uglier."
Esme has also spoke of the mental strain it has caused after her boobs ballooned in size from a B cup to an E cup between the ages of 13 and 14.
She said: "I had a lot more guy friends than girls and my boobs were always a running joke or topic of conversation. People would always oversexualise it.
"I would always be called big boobs and things like that. It does scar you a little bit.
"One guy I had a crush on in secondary school said 'I only like you for your body, not your face. I would always wear a blazer because I was so self-conscious. I didn't want to bring attention to my boobs. I still cover them up now."
Esme has begged the NHS for a breast reduction since 2018, however doctors repeatedly told her she could not have one as she was overweight and under 21.
She subsequently dropped two dress sizes, from a 16 to a 12, and hoped she would finally have the surgery this year, however she was told in April that her BMI was still too high.

Esme broke down in tears when she received the devastating news as it was her last opportunity to have the surgery before her family relocates to Canada in September.
She said: "Since turning 18 I have been going to appointments every year. Something is always wrong though.
"The first time it was that my BMI was too high. I dropped two dress sizes, went back and they told me I was too young.
"I was 18 and they said I had to be 21. The following year Covid started and I had my appointment over the phone.
"It was more like a check up and they said we will see you next year because they couldn’t see anyone due to lockdown.
"Then I had an appointment in April this year. The plan was they could do all the pre-operation stuff by the time I turned 21 (if the appointment went well) and then they would give me a date for surgery in July.
"But they told me my BMI was too high again. It’s my fourth appointment in four years with no progress. Now it’s highly unlikely I will get surgery before going to Canada."
Esme said doctors encourage some breast reduction candidates to lose weight due to scarring concerns and also because it can make boobs smaller.
However, she added that she does not fall into this category as she dropped two dress sizes and bust remained the same.
After finally accepting that she will not be able to get a reduction on the NHS, Esme is now asking for donations to help her pay for private treatment.
She said: "We don't have the money to pay for me to have it done privately here."
Esme hopes to be able to start walking and take part in more activities after her reduction as she will no longer be blighted by pain.
When The Mirror asked the Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group about Esme's case, it said patients must meet the eligibility criteria to undergo a reduction.
