A Pendle Slimming World manager is feeling ready to make any weight-loss dream come true after meeting legendary soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan.

Bev Thompson-Holroyd, who manages Slimming World groups in Colne and Barnoldswick, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heartthrob when he swapped Ramsay Street for the annual Slimming World Awards. He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

It’s so rewarding to see people being able to do things 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

Bev 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: “I couldn’t be prouder of all of the members in Colne and Barnoldswick. 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 all of the Slimming World groups in Pendle when I met Jason. Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”

Jason said he was thrilled to meet Bev at the event in Birmingham. He added: “I’ve been in the business for some time now and I like to think that I have improved with age and experience.”

Bev says 2015 has been a big year for Slimming World, with it welcoming hundreds of thousands of members and launching its first-ever food range, and hopes 2016 will be just as successful. To live happy with Slimming World visit: www.slimmingworld.co.uk
