A group of Pocklington Slimming World Consultants is ready to make any dream come true after meeting legendary soap actor and pop star Jason Donovan.
The team was delighted to get a chance to cuddle up to the Australian heart throb 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.
Jayne Pitcher 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 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.
“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 Slimming World groups in Pocklington when we met Jason. Now I feel incredibly motivated and I can’t wait to support more people to lead healthier, happier lives in 2016.”
Jason, who found fame on Aussie soap opera Neighbours before launching a pop music and stage career, said: “I’ve been in the business for some time now and I like to think that I have improved with age and experience. It certainly sounds like Slimming World’s only going from strength to strength too.”
