A group of Slimming World Consultants say meeting singer and TV presenter Peter Andre was the perfect way to get set for a super-slimming start to 2015!

The team, who run weekly Slimming World groups in Nelson, was thrilled to get a chance to cuddle up to Peter when he co-hosted the Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

Janet Barnes made it clear meeting the “Mysterious Girl” and “Insania” singer was a wonderful way to round off what’s been a great 12 months for Slimming World, as well as the perfect way to kick start another successful year.

She said: “I’m so proud of all of our members. They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2014, with many of them reaching their target weights and improving their health substantially.

“It’s so rewarding to see people achieve things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller-sized clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.

“Meeting Peter was a real treat – he was such a nice guy and a great way to celebrate all of that. Now we feel powered up and can’t wait to help our members hold on to all of the fabulous changes they’ve made and to support even more people to become happier and healthier in 2015.”

Two-time celebrity dad-of-the-year Peter, who famously featured on the ITV show “I’m a Celebrity” in 2004 and now presents “Peter Andre’s 60 Minute Makeover”, said he was delighted to meet the Slimming World Consultants at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.

He added: “Being in the public eye there’s a lot of scrutiny and if you put on even a pound or two the magazines and newspapers are extremely quick to point it out, so I’ve always tried to take care of myself and watch my weight. However since becoming a dad I’ve realised it’s about more than just looking good; it’s much more important to me that I’m fit and healthy and setting a good example to my children.”

Flattered by Peter’s kind words, Gwen King hopes even more people will join Slimming World and benefit from making healthy lifestyle changes this New Year. And she said: “We truly believe that joining Slimming World is the best way for people to lose weight this January.”

“We can’t wait to see what 2015 holds for Slimming World and would love anyone who’s thinking about losing weight this January to join us.”
