After quitting ballet, Demi went vegan - but insists she now has a healthy relationship with food.

She said: “I don’t know what weight I am now, as I don’t weigh myself any more.”

Demi, who lives with her mum, now works as a make-up artist and produces YouTube videos.

She added: “Anorexia is such an all-consuming disorder, it doesn’t matter how concerned the people you love are, you can’t get better until you want to yourself.

One evening in March 2013, Stephen Kilonzo aged nine, drove the family’s livestock to the grazing fields where he joined his mates at Mwasuma village, Mwingi East sub-county.

While at it, he dashed to look for a goat that had strayed from the herd but as he tussled with it in the thicket, a puff udder resting under a tree struck him on the leg. His friends responded to his distress call and rushed to inform his parents about the incident.
