A group of Slimming World consultants celebrated their groups’ successes by meeting chat show host and comedian, Alan Carr.

The opportunity came after Mr Carr co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder and chairman Margaret Miles-Bramwell.

The team, who run Slimming World groups in Borehamwood, were delighted to get a chance to meet the TV star.

Hannah Harman said it was the perfect end to a fantastic year for the Borehamwood Slimming World groups.

"The members at our group make me burst with pride, not only have they seen big changes on the scales, many have improved their health and completely changed their lives too.

"Watching people grow in confidence each week and take on things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight absolutely amazes me. I feel proud of the small part I play in supporting people to achieve their dreams and to celebrate alongside them when they do, so we were honoured to represent the Borehamwood groups at the Slimming World awards. Alan was left in awe of the difference Slimming World makes to people’s lives too.”

Mr Carr, who presented comedy chat show Chatty Man on Channel 4, said: "I met so many people who had transformed their lives and it was clear how much the support they received from their ‘Slimming World family’ meant to them.

"Every one of them spoke passionately about how they couldn’t have made those changes to eat more healthily and become more active without the support of their consultants and group every week. I left the awards feeling so uplifted and positive."
