Transgender man desperate to get rid of his 42GG breasts completes wild online challenges for cash

A transgender man desperate to get rid of his 42GG breasts before his wedding was forced to raise the cash for private surgery with online food challenges - including eating worms, chillies and dog biscuits.

River-Jay Waterson, 29 - formerly Jodie - had proposed to his girlfriend, Kelly Waterson, 37, on April Fool's Day 2016 but the couple were forced to put the wedding on hold as River didn't want to tie the knot while living as a woman.

Desperate to help out her partner, devoted Kelly, began a series of online challenges to raise funds for the breast removal surgery in May 2019.

After three months of fundraising - including River shaving off hair and eyebrows as well as downing raw eggs on camera - the couple had raised over 2k for the procedure.

In June 2021, River finally had the procedure in Wroclaw, Poland, after forking out £2,820.

He was finally able to marry 'love of his life' partner, Kelly in an intimate family ceremony near their home on 11th December 2021.

River is now desperately trying to secure a gender dysphoria diagnosis from the NHS - so he can carry on transitioning - as without it, he is unable to get bottom surgery even if he goes private.

Kelly and River began their online food challenges in May 2020 on TikTok live (@riverjay92) - during which they took dares from strangers who then donated to their fundraising.

After raising over £1k, Kelly's dad, Ken Loyd, 70, matched their efforts and coupled with their savings, River was finally able to book his surgery.

He travelled to Poland in June 2021 for a five-hour surgery which cost £2,820.

River is now hoping to get the rest of the surgery he needs to complete his transition privately as the NHS waiting list could be up to a 10-year wait.
