A group of women who have helped people across Harborough transform their lives by losing weight have gained further inspiration after meeting Jason Donovan.

The team, who run Slimming World groups in the area, met the popstar, who found fame in Neighbours in the 1980s, at the annual Slimming World Awards held in Birmingham in December.

Among the consultants was Suzanne Taylor, who said: “It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things that they didn’t think possible before losing 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 Harborough when we met Jason. Now I can’t wait to support more people to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”

Jason, who co-hosted the awards ceremony with the organisation’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE, said: “At the awards I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has completely changed their lives. Every single one of them told me that they couldn’t have made the changes without the support of their Slimming World group and consultant.”
