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

Bev Thompson-Holroyd, who manages Slimming World groups in Padiham, was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heart-throb for the annual Slimming World Awards in Birmingham.

I couldn’t be prouder of all of the members in Padiham

He co-hosted the event with the organisation’s chair and founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell.

Bev said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year: “I couldn’t be prouder of all of the members in Padiham.

“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 family and friends.”

Jason said: “At the awards, I met lots of people who’ve lost incredible amounts of weight and it has changed their lives – in fact, it’s saved their lives in some cases so people like Bev who run and manage the groups are clearly important.”
