A group of Slimming World consultants met up with soap actor and popstar Jason Donovan at the weight loss group’s annual awards ceremony.

The team, who run Slimming World groups across Huntingdonshire, was given the chance to cuddle up to the Australian actor 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.

Meeting Jason were consultants Mandy Reeve, Denise Lingham, Claire Winn, and Ursula Van Leeuwen-Hill, who run groups in St Neots, Godmanchester, Huntingdon and Hartford.

Mandy Reeve said meeting Jason was a wonderful way to round off a fabulous year for Slimming World. She said: “I couldn’t be prouder of our members. 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.”

Jason, who found fame on Australian soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop music and stage career, said he was thrilled to meet the Slimming World consultants at the event, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre.
