For Australia, a gal needs some meat on her bones:
A British woman who was told she was too thin to become an Australian citizen has won a partial victory in her fight to remain in the country.
Helen Evans, who weighs 6st 11lb [95 lbs for us Yanks] and is 5ft 3ins tall, faced deportation after she failed a health check because of her low weight.
But a tribunal has now overturned the ruling, and Mrs Evans has been told she can stay in Australia pending a decision on her application for permanent residence.
Mrs Evans, 23, has spent three-and-a-half years fighting for the right to remain in Springfield, Brisbane, with her Australian husband Steve and their young son.
She ran into problems after a routine health test for visa applicants because her body mass index - calculated by comparing her weight with her height - was considered "extreme".
....Mrs Evans, who is originally from Cannock, Staffs, said she was now hopeful she will be granted permanent residency within a few months. She will then wait two years before applying for full Australian citizenship.
