Oldish story but just saw it:
Burly rugby player has a stroke after freak gym accidentâ?¦ wakes up gay and becomes a hairdresser
Chris Birch loses eight stone and transforms himself from skinhead to ‘preened man’
Gives up job in bank and retrains as a hairdresser
When 19-stone rugby player Chris Birch suffered a stroke during a freak training accident, his family feared it would be a life-changing injury.
Yet while his recovery certainly brought about a transformation, it seems to have been in a way no one could have expected.
For when he regained consciousness, the 26-year-old â?? who was engaged to his girlfriend â?? claimed he had become gay.
Mr Birchâ??s astonishing change saw him break up with his fiancÃ©e, ditch his job in a bank to retrain as a hairdresser and lose eight stone in weight.
He has now moved in with his 19-year-old boyfriend.
