A GROUP of slimming superstars were given the thumbs up by TV comedian Jason Manford when they met at a glitzy ceremony.

Members of Mildenhall Slimming World Group met with the Eight Out of Ten Cats star at the club’s national awards ceremony in Birmingham just before Christmas.

Donna Cooper, Mildenhall group consultant, said the awards were a chance to recognise members’ successes.

“It’s recognition for the 8,000 groups that make up Slimming World and the 800 ordinary people who end up achieving extraordinary things,” she said.

Carole Wright, from Merseyside, was crowned Slimmer of the Year, having changed her life by losing more than 19 stone.

Ms Cooper said this was a story she had seen herself in Mildenhall.

“We’ve got people who have lost 10 stone and it doesn’t just change their life but everyone around them,” she said.

The Mildenhall group now has 176 members.
