Round bees, terribly fat (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

obese

'fat' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)

'round bees terribly' is the wordplay.
'round' becomes 'o' (o is a circular letter).
'terribly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'bees' is an anagram of 'bese'.
'o'+'bese'='OBESE'

(Other definitions for obese that I've seen before include "Unusually fat" , "Very substantial" , "in need of slimming down" , "Huge" , "Unhealthily fat and overweight" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror and The Daily Express.
