ORGANISERS of a Harborough slimming group met reality TV star Mark Wright recently.

Mark, who also featured in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, and who also fronts ITV2 show Take Me Out The Gossip, was joined by Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell for the ceremony in Birmingham.

Dawn and Georgie, who also run weekly sessions in Melton Mowbray, said they were thrilled to meet Mark, describing it as the perfect end to a great year.
