The UK's youngest successful heart transplant patient has revealed his story for the first time.

Today Hamzah Butt is a strapping six footer, who has just finished his GCSE's and is hoping for a career in the film industry.

Sixteen years ago, however, his parents were told not to expect him to survive to his second week.

Doctors had discovered he had just half a functioning heart.

The chances of finding a heart small enough for Hamzah were a million to one.

I went by the name Hamzah Butt during the early 90s.

I can't help reading it Hazmah Butt.

You have to wonder what his parents were thinking when he got stuck with that name.

I don't see what's so funny (apart from the word Butt, which his parents couldn't choose)
