A BURNLEY slimming consultant who helps people shed the pounds got the chance to meet comedian Jason Manford.
Caroline Griffiths, who runs groups at Turf Moor and St Cuthbert’s Community Hall, was introduced to the funnyman at Slimming World’s annual awards ceremony in Birmingham.
Salford-born Jason, who has appeared on a string of television shows including “Show Me the Funny”, “Comedy Rocks” and “Live at the Apollo”, joined Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell to host the event.
He said: “Presenting the Slimming World Awards was a real honour. I was blown away by the achievements of all of the slimmers who joined us on stage.
“Throughout the day I met so many inspirational people, not only the slimmers collecting awards but also the amazing people like Caroline who run the groups and help them achieve so much. It’s literally changed their lives beyond all recognition.”
