A group of Slimming World consultants is ready to make any weight-loss dream come true after meeting former pop star Jason Donovan.

The team, who run Slimming World groups in Larne, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he swapped the theatre for the annual Slimming World Awards.

He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Elspeth Turner-Warke 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 added: “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.

“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 Larne 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: “It certainly sounds like Slimming World’s only going from strength to strength, and as they enter their 47th year of helping people to lose weight they’re better placed than ever before to help people to lead healthier lives.
