A group of Slimming World consultants are feeling ready to make any (weight-loss) dream come true after meeting soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan.
The consultants, who run Slimming World groups in Stamford, Bourne and Rutland, were delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s chairman and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell .
Jenny Summers, who runs the Rippingale group, said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for Slimming World, as well as a great way to get ready for another successful 12 months.
She said “I couldn’t be prouder of our members. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2015, with many of them making their weight loss dreams come true by hitting their target weight, improving their health and more.
“It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.
“Every week I feel so lucky to play even a small part in people’s achievements and I felt very honoured to represent Slimming World groups in Bourne when we met Jason. Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.
Jason, who found fame on Aussie soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop music and stage career, said he was equally thrilled to meet the consultants at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.
