A group of Slimming World consultants said meeting singer and TV presenter Peter Andre was the perfect way to get set for 2015.

The consultants, who run weekly Slimming World groups in Brighouse, were thrilled to get a chance to cuddle up to Peter when he co-hosted the Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s chairwoman and founder, Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE.

May Wiseman, one of the group, said meeting the singer was a wonderful way to round off a great 12 months for Slimming World, as well as the perfect way to kick-start another successful year.

“I’m so proud of all of our members,” she said.

“They’ve lost fantastic amounts of weight throughout 2014, with many of them reaching their target weights and improving their health substantially.

“It’s so rewarding to see people achieve things that they didn’t think possible before losing weight, whether that’s wearing smaller-sized clothes, taking up new hobbies, reducing medication or being able to do more with their family and friends.

“Meeting Peter was a real treat – he was such a nice guy – and a great way to celebrate all of that.

“Now we feel powered up and can’t wait to help our members hold on to all of the fabulous changes they’ve made and to support even more people to become happier and healthier in 2015.”

Fellow consultant Beth Raistrick hopes even more people will benefit from making healthy lifestyle changes this year.

“Getting off to a great start is really important when embarking on a slimming plan; seeing results on the scales and feeling lighter and brighter will motivate people to keep going and achieve their goals.

“Everyone will be sure of a fab start with Slimming World this New Year and even if people have struggled to stick to weight loss plans in the past, I know we can help them to make a change for life this time around - our members and their success are proof of that,” she said.
